All of the above suggestions are authentic recommendations. As I have typed this up and collated and organized the information, I have become SO VERY hungry. Palmer is definitely the place for foodies. Palmer still lacks an Indian Restaurant and Wine and Sushi Bar. Spend your money locally and eat at any of these fine places. No doubt you will have your favorites. Be loyal. Also remember there are other eateries coming on board and our local veggie markets will be starting up in two months. Cut and Clip this important list.

Stay warm this week and keep washing those hands.
