Dinner Review: Council Oak Steakhouse

Dinner Review: Council Oak Steakhouse

Tampa, Florida -- The Council Oak Steakhouse, located in the Seminole Hard Rack Casino, is a much better investment than any game of chance. 

Décor and Dress:  Even on a busy night--- the restaurant was fully booked on our visit--- there is a prevailing air of sanctuary.  Outside in the casino, hundreds of electric games beeped in a dissonant chorus, and thick throngs of gamblers and employees rush to and fro.  At the entrance, a large window showcases the restaurant’s butcher at work, trimming fat from prime cuts of meat...

Wish Farms offers organic blueberries

Wish Farms offers organic blueberries

Plant City -- Wishnatzki Farms, a Florida-based grower-shipper, has announced the addition of pesticide residue-free blueberries to its produce offerings. 

Wish Farms is the only shipper in the country to have blueberries approved by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), a third party organization that certifies environmental and safety claims. 

"I believe pesticide residue-free blueberries will be embraced by consumers," said Gary Wishnatzki, president of Wish Farms.  "These berries will be more affordable than organics, which have a loyal following, but are too pricey for many customers.  This alternative to organics will appeal to a much larger audience."
