pechakucha night revisited

hi everybody! sorry it's been a while since we've posted but marigold and spice of life have both been really busy. the boys from pechakucha night finally put up pictures of the moca event, so we thought we'd share a co
uple featuring ben and greg giving what was reported to be, with all due respect to the other presenters, the highlight of the night. we're particularly proud of the shot of
ben's beer can balancing on the music stand (as shown here):
in other important renegade news, we'll be throwing our biggest lunch
ever this thursday, june 11 on mall b. the lunch will benefit the good work of cleveland public art, the organization responsible for doing so much to beautify our fair city. if you're in the neighborhood, please stop by and join us.
beyond that, we're looking forward to a busy and rewarding summer and a couple of cool renegade lunches at places like star plaza at playhouse square and somewhere near the rock and roll hall of fame.

food fotos

hey folks! we've gotten a couple of nice food shots from renegade sent our way recenty, so i thought i'd share them here. i figure they might inspire you to join us soon or, at the very least, prove that we're not just serving sandwiches and potato chips at these things...well, not yet anyway. we'll be posting soon to talk about our june location. until then- b&g

lunch accomplished!

thanks to everyone who joined us for lunch today! we met some new friends, reconnected with others, served some lunch, and raised money for making strides against breast cancer. a pretty good day to be sure! in no particular order, our next lunches will be at mall b, star plaza, and the rock and roll hall of fame. we'll keep you posted and hope to see you there!

pechakucha night at moca and may renegade...all in one week!

hi everybody! well, we're going to be having a busy week here in ben and greg's renegade lunch land! this friday, we'll be among the 14 presenters at pechakucha night at cleveland's museum of contemporary art. ben and i are currently working out our schtik for the evening and are hoping for the best. admittedly, i think it's a little intimidating to get up in front of a big crowd of artists and other creative people to talk about how two knuckleheads from cleveland cook lunch...but it's gratifying to have been invited to join and we're really looking forward to it.

as if that weren't enough excitement (especially with the addition of our busy day jobs), we'll be throwing down a lunch next tuesday, may 12th! the lunch will benefit and be held in conjunction with acs' making strides against breast cancer walk AND will be our very first outdoor lunch of the year. hint: look for it to be somewhere very, very near the house that james built. hope to see you there! cheers- greg (and ben)

another successful lunch!

today's renegade lunch found us in the lobby of one of cleveland's classic department stores from a bygone era, the halle building. ben called at 7 a.m. to tell me that he'd been up all night with flu so we tapped our trusted longtime friend and culinary companion, ryan bennett, to fill in for the day. we cooked up some chili pepper and scallion egg rolls with lime ginger soy dipping stuff and a tasty thai beef and fried noodle salad with warm vinaigrette. thanks to our generous guests, we raised $800 to help the puppies and kitties (and bunnies) at the cleveland APL. see you all in may!

renegade tomorrow!!!!

howdy everybody! tomorrow (tuesday, april 28) will find ben and greg cooking lunch and helping the APL! the asian/thai-influenced menu will feature chinese egg rolls with soy-ginger-lime dipping stuff and a thai beef and noodle salad. if you'd like to join our merry little band, we'll be at the halle building on euclid and you'll recognize us by the white-clothed dining tables, 24 chairs, and the two idiots trapped in the middle of it all. : )
