ZEKE’S DELIVERS CAFFEINE BOOSTS
The Food Revolution Day bash last Friday at Obama Academy featured all sorts of exhibitors, from a screenprinter to a petting zoo. Zeke’s Coffee was in the crowd, providing boosts of caffeine via its Rocket Man Coffee pack. The backpack holds a sleeve of cups, mixings and a dispenser that contains enough freshly brewed java for 50 cups. Zeke’s Coffee plans to break out the pack again, so stay tuned. In the meantime, find the coffee at select local farmers markets and shops, such as 52nd Street Market.

GRAB A HEARTY LUNCH AT THE MARKET
Pittsburgh Public Market makes it easy to stay within your lunch budget on Fridays. A half-dozen market vendors have rolled out $5 specials. From a soup-and-sandwich combo (Soup Nancy’s) to a hand pie and cookie (Najat’s Cuisine), there should be something to please most palates. Certain portions are generous, and leftovers are possible.

Next Friday, Bella Sera plans to host its 15th annual Grillin’ n’ Swillin’ event, complete with live music. Chef/Owner Jason Capps and his kitchen crew have put together a five-course menu that includes shrimp and pork; they’ll demonstrate how to make each dish before serving.
