Weekend reads: Deep fried beer, a chef runs for the senate, and more
Just when you thought the race for the South Carolina U.S. Senate seat could not get more unusual, there's a new twist.Famed South Carolina chef and cookbook author Nathalie Dupree has entered the race as a write-in candidate. She tells CNN she was motivated to launch the long-shot campaign after reading an article last week about GOP incumbent Sen. Jim DeMint's refusal to sign off on a congressional earmark of $400,000 to study dredging for the port of Charleston.
ON a recent warm summer evening, well over a thousand people packed the lawns at Boordy Vineyards in Hydes, Md. Families tucked into picnics, toddlers ran freely, and couples and singles danced on the makeshift floor to a swing band pumping out oldies. But the main reason for the crowds was the wine.
It was only a matter of time before someone figured out how to eat and drink beer, all in one bite.Deep Fried Beer, debuting Friday at Miller Time Pub in the Hilton Milwaukee City Center, is the perfect Wisconsin marriage of fried food and beer dipped in cheese. And you have to be at least 21 to order it.
