Fehrenbacher's Artisan Sausage opened in Gainesville in January of this year. In my opinion, it is the  jewel of the 4th avenue food park area and will continue to be, long after this developing area adds more food-related businesses.The Gainesville Sun recently featured Fehrenbacher's in this article: http://www.gainesville.com/news/20180407/made-to-order-handcrafted-sausage-from-farm-to-finishI'm excited to see them continue to grow and produce quality artisan products. My favorite item thus far is the bratwurst, which I enjoy pairing with one of L.E.J Pretzels (@lejpretzels) incredible pretzel hot dog buns and a little German mustard. Everything I've tried from Fehrenbacher's has been of the highest quality. Adam and Tatiana are both very personable with excellent customer service.Fe...

Review 2017 and Plan 2018Here we are are on the last business day of 2017. We tend to be goal driven and it’s time to review 2017 and plan 2018. Our financial statements are complete for the year, so we’ve got some analysis to do, have some discussions and work on our business plans and goals for 2018.Thanks to brain-training by Brian Buffini over the years, it’s just hard coded for me to write down goals, and review them regularly. His last few podcasts have been very good for me develop in my improved daily thinking: Be Grateful.I find myself getting so busy, over-whelmed with transaction details, time-management, and endless to-do lists. I have started a new habit to help me settle down, take a deep breath, and feel grateful.So this year-end analysis isn’t going to be just about the ...

[UPDATE - This restaurant closed abruptly and without warning to its patrons. This review is no longer valid] Cafe Ameraucana has opened a restaurant located at 2410 NW 43rd street. Originally a very popular pizza truck, they now have a cozy fixed location. The dough is a wild fermented sourdough that is the best texture of dough I've experienced. It is extremely soft with a light chew and char marks from the wood fired process in their imported oven. The Fontina Fungo is the only pizza I've tried (twice) via carry out but it is so exceptional I'm not sure I'll make it to the others! There's loads of umami and bombastic flavor.Check them out. This is some of the best pizza I've had in Gainesville. Cafe Ameraucana website: https://www.gnvpizza.com/menu/Facebook page: https://www.facebook...
