The Local Farey Tale of the Slugburger

Slugburger (mustard, pickle, hold the onions) at Borroum’s Drug Store, Corinth, MS

Whew! Made it to Episode 2 – The Local Farey Tale of the Slugburger!

I love interviewing Tale-Tellers but sometimes it just takes time to gather their stories. While I’d like to provide episodes more often, once a month feels like a pretty big accomplishment right now. I do hope you stick with me – and spread the word as I build momentum! 🙂

Be sure to follow Local Farey Tales Podcast on Facebook and/or Instagram to see featured Slugburger Tale-Teller posts and to share your own Slugburger Tales or tales of another local fare favorite.

Note: The photo is from the first (and only so far…) time I tried a Slugburger. Now that I know even more about them, I can’t wait to go back and explore the Slugburger Trail!
