As mentioned previously, it seems only fair that since local newspapers glean so many news tips from NA Confidential, which comes to them entirely gratis (apart from the periodic indignity), that a friendly "comp subscription" isn't out of the question.
Unfortunately, I can see the Gannett-encumbered C-J doing it before the 'Bama Hansonator, but so it goes. Maybe a reporter can buy me a beer or coffee every now and then.
Meanwhile, Mesa's in the news -- in New Albany.

Mesa collaborative kitchen to launch this summer in New Albany, by Dana McMahan (Courier-Journal)
A collaborative kitchen, featuring cooking performances by local chefs, is coming to New Albany this summer. The space at 216 Pearl Street will house a demonstration kitchen and a retail area, said co-owner Bobby Bass.
This concept – 20 diners will gather around to watch chefs prepare meals, with the chance to interact and ask questions – “is simply not being done ... in this area,” said Bass. “It's a very unique experience.”
“With the amount of restaurants popping up everywhere, it gives chefs a way to set themselves apart,” he went on. “They like being able to do something different.”
