Adella Miesner

NBC News announced Wednesday that President Donald Trump would participate in a town hall-style event on Thursday — the day that he and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden were scheduled to have a debate prior to Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.

NBC says the event, hosted by Today show anchor Savannah Guthrie, will take place in Miami with “a group of Florida voters.”

The network also said that it had received a statement from Dr. Clifford Lane, the Clinical Director at the National Institutes of Health, who said that both he and Dr. Anthony Fauci had cleared Trump to participate.

The records reportedly reviewed by Lane and Fauci included a PCR COVID-19 test. Lane said that he has a “high degree of confidence” that the president is “not shedding infectious virus.”

The one-hour event will begin at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.

Trump’s town hall will come the same day that Joe Biden

Can Swiggy and Zomato help India’s $41B unorganised street food market go online?

Adella Miesner

Earlier this month, #BabaKaDhaba began trending on Twitter. A video of the hardships being endured by 80-year-old Kanta Prasad and his wife, Badami Devi, who run a small kiosk opposite a temple in Delhi’s Malviya Nagar, led to an outpouring of support on social media.

The video, shot by YouTube food blogger Gaurav Wasan, caught the attention of thousands of people, including celebrities and political leaders, all of whom sought to support the couple, suffering since the lockdown. 

Soon after, Gurugram-based food delivery unicorn Zomato announced that people in Delhi could order food from Baba ka Dhaba. A source said the team was now working on documentation and other legalities of getting them online. 

But Baba ka Dhaba was not the only small vendor that faced massive problems and loss of livelihood amidst the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.

Florida stone crab season, starring one of our state’s most famous foods, starts Thursday with restaurants across Sarasota and Manatee counties eager to serve the delicacy.

The demand for stone crab remained strong locally last season through the spring despite the coronavirus and state-ordered restaurant shutdown. But season will be shorter now due to new regulations approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Local restaurateurs, commercial fishermen and seafood distributors are looking to capitalize on the popular and pricey crustaceans as soon, and as much, as possible, which should be good news for area stone crab enthusiasts.   

“We’ll have them opening day,” says Brett Wallin, the fourth-generation owner of Sarasota’s Walt’s Fish Market, Restaurant & Tiki Bar, which opened in 1918.

Assam minister for forest and environment Parimal Suklabaidya on Wednesday requested those protesting against feeding beef to wild animals living inside the zoo to not create an uproar over the issue.

However, Greece is surrounded on three sides by water and many islands. What could be more enchanting than eating a midday meal on an island in the Aegean surrounded by shimmering water and beautiful scenery?

Boats with red and white sails are unloading the morning’s catch of crawfish, mullet, and octopus. Market stalls neat the water sell scarlet tomatoes green peppers, wine-dark eggplants and beautifully scented lemons. All a preview of an excellent meal.
