    Where is this stuff going? I was having a hard time finding it in the stores nearby - and I'm just over the border from MD, so I guess I think the streets should be paved with the stuff. When I had gone some time without finding any, I checked online only to find it out of stock at both Walmart and Amazon!! I checked for any news articles explaining why it had all disappeared, but found nothing apart from McCormick (who owns them) saying they were bought up in panic at the beginning of the lockdown. Of all the things I might fear running out of while quarantined, this never crossed my mind as they sell it in big cans that last for years. I feel weird being the only person who seems to be having this problem. Am I?

    I find that strange. Just went to Target online and found it available in stores. If I remember, i'll look for it at the grocery store.

    Don't tell anyone, but there is an secret cure for coronavirus based on Old Bay seafood seasoning.






    Not really . . . But it would be cool if it was!

    Oh hell yeah. I had forgotten about that stuff. Along with good hispanic food, Everglades seasoning would be one of the things I miss most about Florida.

    Next time you get down to the Twin Cities, check this place out in Eden Prairie. It's just a few miles south of the mall. I crushed a lot of burgers there when I was a kid in HS their burgers are the bomb diggity.

    If you like burgers and beer, you will not be disappointed. Best burgers in the world. And having Iowa roots, I know a little bit about tasty burgers. :)
