Does eating turkey make you sleepy? | Human World | EarthSky

Ah, Thanksgiving Day. You pile your plates with turkey, dressing, two kinds of potatoes, cranberries – all the traditional foods – and dig in. Second helpings? Of course! An hour later, after plenty of food and conversation, you push back and notice you’ve become very, very sleepy. You think, “I’m sleepy because turkey is high in tryptophan.”

This chicken chain is beating Buffalo Wild Wings because customers don't want to hang out there - Yahoo Finance

Wingstop is succeeding by refusing to be the type of place where people come and stay a while.

Most of Wingstop's business — 75% — is takeout, a far greater percentage than at the majority of quick-service restaurants. This allows Wingstop to keep restaurants small (about 1,700 square feet), minimize costs, and prepare for two of the biggest trends in the industry: online ordering and delivery.

The chicken chain increased total revenue 16.5% in the third quarter, Wingstop reported last week. The company is on track to deliver its 12th consecutive year of positive same-store sales (sales at stores open at least a year) at the end of next quarter.

The growth is especially remarkable as wing chains, such as Buffalo Wild Wings, have been hurt by a shorter fall sports calendar and chicken prices that in recent months have been higher than usual. According to Wingstop, the company's secret lies in keeping things simple — and getting most customers out of its restaurants as quickly as possible.

Falbo brosThanks for choosing Falbo Bros.! Get ready for a unique pizza experience. Before they try our pizza, people always ask us “What is your pizza like?” “Is it Chicago style?

Millstream Brewing Co.

Millstream Brewing CoIowa's Oldest Brewery

Three Amana men decided to revive the art that had not been practiced in the Amana Colonies for years - the art of brewing beer. Carroll F. Zuber and brothers James and Dennis Roemig dreamed of building a small brewery to produce small batches of hand brewed beer reminiscent of Europe's finest.

To brew the best they needed the best, so they called on one of America's premier brewers, Joseph Pickett Sr., who helped in the brewery design, in the development of the beers, Millstream Lager and the robust, Schild Brau. Later, Millstream brewers, developed the zesty Millstream Wheat Beer.

In 1985 Millstream Brewing Co. opened its doors - the first brewery to operate in Amana since 1884. So the Millstream Brewery was born and so it has come to be recognized as the home of quality brews of rewarding taste.

The Story Continues in 2000 with the sale of the brewery to Chris Priebe, Tom and Teresa Albert. Chris is naturally handy and keeps the brewery in tip-top shape. Chris also is a trained brewer from the Siebel Institute of Brewing Technology and has brought many years of brewing experience to Millstream. Teresa is an excellent people person and handles all the sales and marketing. Tom is our warehouse and production manager. He is the "glue" that binds the place together. It takes a good team to run a good brewery!

These owners are committed to continually making quality brews, one batch at a time. With a current count of 33 national awards and 1 international award, Millstream speaks of some of the finest beer made in the Midwest today. The brewers have introduced many different styles of beer to Millstream Brewery and with the passing of the higher alcohol law change in spring of 2010, many more styles will be coming out! The Brewery hopes to be able to reach out to local consumers in new and exciting ways.
