February 3, 2021 – veggies veggies veggies

Is eating a big pile of veggies your idea of a good time? If so, you’ve got a screw loose, definitely. But we’re here for you. We got you. This here is a winter veggie plate with butternut squash risotto cakes (crispy!), braised white beans (savory!), roasted fennel (aromatic!), and rainbow chard (colorful!).

You know that this is only going to get worse until you get off your ass and get organized, right? You understand that.

And you know that society is literally falling apart because money is the only organizing principle at work in our society, right? You understand that, I know you do.

And you realize that you can’t post your way out of this mess, right? You understand that Facebook and Twitter & even my glorious posting is just a distraction from the reality work that needs to be done. The work of organizing ourselves into some kind of strength that can oppose the mass-suicidal money power that controls everything in your life. You understand this, I know you do.

So stop looking at this picture of a roasted chicken with potato gratin, green beans & red wine jus (looks delicious doesn’t it?) and get to work- either organizing or letting yourself BE organized. The Poor People’s Campaign needs you. The Sunrise Movement needs you.

The Democrats aren’t going to fix this, there’s no manager you can complain to. There’s just power operating baldly and openly to wreck your climate, impoverish your family and destroy our country so that it can stay rich. And that Power only respects power- it’s not going to change because it would be nice. But you understand this, don’t you?




December 28, 2020 – Collard Greens & Black-eyed Peas

According to the ancient magical folkways of this land, wealth and good fortune in a new year can be obtained by consuming collard greens & black-eyed peas, foods brought to these cursed shores by Capitalism’s greatest sin, the slave trade.

We’re not sure of the efficacy of such practices — a lot of things bring wealth and fortune, or poverty and misfortune — but considering the trajectory of the past year and the conditions we’re heading into, it might be worth a try.

You can trust the food shamans at Geer Street Garden to allow only good vibrations and honest-to-gosh wealth spirits into our food. So this week we’re offering quart containers of cooked collard greens & black-eyed peas to make sure your 2021 is immune to economic collapse, environmental devastation, alien mind control, shitty bosses, newly mutated coronavirus that turns the world into The Stand and vaccines that turn the world into 28 Days Later. To further ensure maximum magical potency, they are not vegetarian. They’re $8 per quart.

Call 919-688-2900 to reserve yours. They’ll be ready for pickup Thursday & Friday at the restaurant.
