It took a decade for Todd Brutcher to launch his cocktail mixer brand. And in just its first few years, Southside Alchemy has won international acclaim for its bloody mary mix. A favorite in restaurants and on grocery store shelves, we'll talk to the longtime bartender about what makes a good mix, where he hopes the brand goes, and how it all started with a drum kit. Plus we'll give you an ALL GOOD NEWS(!) update and weekend planner that is (we’d like to think) Simone Biles approved. Have a topic idea or just want to send us your thoughts or comments?

One year ago, St. Louis area leaders announced hard-to-stomach safety measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus. At the time, it was thought they’d only last a couple weeks, maybe a month. For the restaurant industry, it’s meant enough pivots to make you dizzy, even stumble and fall down. But they’re getting back on their feet. Abby sat down – from afar – with four local foodies for a special two-part episode series. They talked about what happened, what comes next and how the restaurant industry can and must recover after a year tabled. Part 2 will be released next Thursday.
