As we approach the first day of summer, June 11th marks the calendar to celebrate National Corn on the Cob Day each year. Fresh corn on the cob is a summertime treat people from all corners of the United States look forward to as we start the picnic season.
In different regions of the country, corn on the cob is known as pole corn, cornstick, sweet pole, butter-pop, sweet corn, or long maize. Picking the corn when the kernels are tender and in its milk stage serves up sweeter kernels.
Boiling, steaming, roasting, and grilling are the most common ways to prepare corn on the cob. When grilling or roasting sweet corn, the husks may be left on to retain moisture and flavor during the cooking process.
While it might seem rude, proper dinner etiquette for eating corn says holding the cob at each end with your fingers is appropriate. Serving corn on the cob with other seasonings, butter or oils can add even more flavor. On June 10th, we celebrated National Herbs and Spices Day. Anything you learned while celebrating can also be applied while enjoying your corn on the cob! Consider roasting your sweet corn with a little cilantro and chili pepper.
On June 11th, National German Chocolate Cake Day celebrates a cake with American roots. It also happens to be one of the top 10 favorite cakes in America.
Although the name may sound like the cake originated in Germany, it did not. The cake’s roots can be traced back to 1852 when American, Sam German, made a type of dark baking chocolate for the American Baker’s Chocolate Company. Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate’s brand was named in honor of Sam German.
Over 100 years later in 1957, a recipe for “German’s Chocolate Cake” appeared as the Recipe of the Day in the Dallas Morning Star. This recipe, created by Mrs. George Clay, used the Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, and it became quite popular. During this time, General Foods owned the Baker’s brand and distributed Mrs. Clay’s recipe to other newspapers around the country. The current name of German Chocolate Cake, as we know it today, came to be as publications started dropping the ‘s.

AMARILLO, Texas –– The Greyhound Gallery is looking forward to a bright and colorful summer this year by letting light shine through art! The Greyhound Gallery is celebrating the vibrant colors of summer Friday, June 11th with our ‘Colors of Summer’ art exhibition. The event will start at 6 pm and last until 9 pm inside The Derrick at 814 S. Taylor.
The show features local artists as well as artists from Oklahoma City; Denver; Lubbock; Canyon; and the DFW metroplex. The event will have live music by local singer, James Owens and cocktails along with area food trucks with an admission of $5. By attending, you will get your name in the drawing for a piece of art!
We are excited to show off several new artists and numerous new pieces that capture the summer spirit with a lively atmosphere that the whole family can enjoy! “We are excited to have our second art exhibition here at the Greyhound Gallery. Our first exhibition was well received with so much support from the community. We had live music, food trucks, and around 300-350 people – nearly as much art as there were guests!” said gallery manager Jesse Melson, “Currently we have over 30 artists and over 360 pieces of artwork throughout our three floors here at the Derrick.”
The Greyhound Gallery lives in a space that was originally built as a Greyhound Bus Station in 1946 – now called The Derrick. The historic station is now utilized as an event space, art gallery, executive office suites and coworking membership space, and showcases the Tascosa Office Furniture Showroom.
With the historic qualities and architecture of the building, the gallery lives in 13,000 square feet of space and has 600+ feet of linear wall space to work with throughout the three floors of the building.
