Bon voyage, Loose Lip Larry!
Well, Reinhardt folks, today marks the end of an era at Reinhardt College. Our beloved chef, "Loose Lip" Larry Speights, departs from the Gordy Center and Reinhardt College's food service to realize his dream. He'll be opening a restaurant here in Waleska. I can guarantee if the new place is both infused with Larry's personality and serves up Larry's good cooking, it's going to be THE place to be around here--aside from the library of course.
If you need something to tide you over until Loose Lip's restaurant opens, I have three suggestions: 1) go to the grocery store and pick up a bottle of one of Loose Lip Larry's signature sauces (I can't wait to try his "Slap Yo' Mama" wing sauce), 2) visit Larry's Web site at www.looseliplarrys.com, and 3) check out his cookbook Loose Lip Larry presents You Can Cook Too: the Passion for Cooking. Of course, I have my own sauce-spattered copy of Larry's book, but we also have a copy available for checkout here at the library (TX652 .S65 2007 on the third floor).
Good luck, Larry. Your Reinhardt family loves you!
