Drink Locally, Eat Locally (Within Reason)
Dinner tonight was Zweigle's Hots washed down with a Genesee Beer, my beer of choice once again, as it was in high school. It doesn;t get much more local than that. Also, I was quite happy that at the delightful Asian Food Market, the Nature Soy Chinese tofu and Han Kuk Mi Korean rice we bought, while not exactly local, was at least made and grown in the U.S.A. However, the Foojoy Dim Sum Bo Nay Tea (Pu-erh tea) was, of course, imported, but still a bargain at four bucks for a hundred bags.
Whenever possible, I try to support my community and country by buying locally, but I also try not to be a jerk about it. There are some specialty items from far off that just can't be produced locally.
