August 13 Afternoon Roundup

Rick Nelson loves The Drive In, the prettiest salad photo you’ll see in a month or more, garlic noodles with heirloom tomatoes (etc.) in the Heavy Table Flickr pool, a nice meditation on local food (by way of our meditation) on towlebooth, Metro describes five key flavors you should have on hand in your kitchen (but, seriously, does anybody not know what ginger looks like?), and We Got Served enjoys a meal at Il Vesco Vino and shares the details on its cigar + patio program.
