#EATUPJAX: Cowford Chophouse Opens, Moon Over the Market & Other Dining News

COWFORD CHOPHOUSE OPENS We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of the for over two years, and it was worth the wait. Because of the historical nature of the building, which dates back to 1902, they’ve worked very hard to restore a lot of the architectural details (like the arched windows, exterior bricks, and metal cornice). The lead architect and designer for the Cowford Chophouse was Design Cooperative (DCOOP) and Danis Construction served as the contractor. The old pine in the building was repurposed throughout the building, and you’ll see the beautiful wood in the community tables. While parking after dark …

A Visit to Mixon Studios

likes to bring together disparate and incongruous objects and see what beautiful accidents emerge. In his studio, you’ll find bronze breasts, a scale model of the Sears Tower, chicken wire, and old glass. He loves to pick his way through scrapyards. Edelson’s latest artwork may be his biggest yet. It juxtaposes a former industrial detergent plant, the infamously polluted , and fine art. He calls it . Mixon Studios takes its name from Mixon Town, which Google Maps calls this Industrial Gothic district north of and I-10, though the City of Jacksonville collectively calls several neighborhoods including Mixon Town, Honeymoon, …

What’s Brewing at One Spark

“April showers bring …”   Nope. That’s not what I think of when I think of this month. April is a celebratory month – especially for those of us who love to live – and explore – in Florida. In 1513, landed near what is now St. Augustine and gave the name to his newly discovered landmass “La Florida”. A little over 250 years later, completed his journey into Florida in 1766 and it was his diary-cum-travel journal which motivated merchants “across the pond” to purchase tracts of land along the eastern coast of Florida in the late 1700s.

Some things last a long time. Some things combined with other things become eternal. Christmas and  – now, there’s a pair that will always be together.

What’s Brewing? Oktoberfest

A personal beer mug that displays, in holographic form, the temperature of the beer within its confines, the beer’s alcohol content by volume (ABV), its International Bitterness Units (IBUs), your heart rate, blood pressure, family birthdays and bank account balance–along with the price you are paying for your selected brew.

It doesn’t exist–at least not at the time this article is published. But I am sure somewhere, somebody is working on developing such …

What’s Brewing – March 2014 – party month

This Irish toast is so fitting for the month of March, the de facto “party month” where almost everything is allowed, expected, and forgiven on and around St. Patrick’s Day. “A keg of does not an Irish bar make” – that’s one of mine. It takes more than an Irish stout and a few pictures on a wall to really have true Irish bar ambiance. Everybody knows that, too. This is the month for trying Shepherd’s Pie, Bangers ‘n Mash, Guinness Beef Stew, Corned Beef ‘n Cabbage and Fish ‘n Chips (best with Malt Vinegar sprinkled on top). In the …
