The Queen

My name is Sydney, and the two things I love most in this world (other than my cats) are writing and eating. Queen of the Food Age is dedicated to everything food–recipes, quotes, thoughts, reviews, pictures, and interacting with other people out there who are as passionate about food as I am.

It’s always wine o’clock as far as I’m concerned.

I’m not a chef (but I do say BAM! a lot when I’m cooking), nor have I really had any professional training (unless you count 1 semester of culinary school… which most people don’t), but ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you: I’m a foodivore. I live to eat.

Like these crazy people. “WE CAN’T RESIST THE CALL OF DINNER”

PR/Media: I do not accept payment for reviews. I will accept gift cards as an incentive to come dine at your establishment, but I do not take that into consideration when writing my review. For PR, giveaways, event invitations, etc, please email me at sydneygallimore[at]

    I just found your blog. Very entertaining ;).

    Since you mentioned us in your May 7 entry … how did you know about “Trashcans”? We don’t advertise them. They were invented by the previous owner (we bought the place in 2010) . The “Trashcan” has become a local legend among the college crowd. We only offer them if someone asks.

    Anyway please come by and have a meal. The owner and head chef, Hope, prepares everything fresh and uses as much locally grown produce as possible. The “Vegetable Bin” is a lifesaver sometimes. She is here most days until 8PM so just ask for “mom’. Chucktown Tavern is the only place in the Market St area where you can get a home cooked lunch Mon-Fri for $5.95.


    • I used to live right on Beaufain and Chucktown tavern was the closest place to my house. When the old owners were there, they recommended a Trashcan as a special drink for my 21st birthday And its been a tradition for trashcans and karaoke at Chucktown tavern ever since!

      And your menu looks great, I’ll definitely be stopping by for lunch or dinner in the next couple of weeks!!

      Thanks so much for finding me, Marty! I look forward to eating one of Hope’s delicious home cooked meals!

    Your blog seemed particularly awesome, so I was wondering if you would like to talk about ways to make short video a cool component of your blog, either online or over coffee.
