Our November 2014 Newsletter Now Online

Al Laudencia of Hal n Al's Q & CateringThe Latest Issue of the Newsletter is now archived for viewing online.

We had the honor of talking with Al Laudencia of Hal n Al's Q & Catering.

I had the pleasure of trying their "Q" at their inaugural debut at the Sweet Corn Festival a few years back. It was excellent and I've always wanted to do an interview.

Due to logistics and scheduling it always stayed on our "to do" list. Over the years we've had folks come up and say, "You should do an interview on these guys!"

This month that goal was achieved, it was well worth the wait.

So grab a cup of coffee, there is a lot to cover this month and we look forward to seeing you in Adel.
