Why I Joined the “#BlueGloveGroup” and Took My Act to Vegas by Chef Mick Brown

Blue Man Group
Experiencing the “Blue Man Group” show in Vegas is on my Top 5 List of “Things You Can’t Unsee”. (In a good way)

While I would love to turn it into a show or a musical, the “Blue Glove Group” may not be appearing in Las Vegas anytime soon. At least not on stage… I dedicated a recent trip to Sin City to promoting a new brand of biodegradable disposable gloves to local restaurants on and off the strip. Despite the current strike from an important sector of the local Culinary Workers Union, people seem to warm up to the idea. The gloves, made by green industry upstart company EcoGloves, are color coded for added convenience.

The Clear Gloves are available in eyebrow-raising singles packets, that may require some explanation if found in a pocket by your spouse. They also come in boxes of 100 and are perfectly safe to add to your natural compost for home kitchens. The Pink and Blue gloves are streamlined for commercial use in kitchens, salons, medical offices and anywhere disposable gloves are in use . While more protective for hands, and discarded with regular trash, they biodegrade from landfills within 3 years (unlike their white latex counterparts).

I know- no one person or business is responsible for the billions of disposable gloves that end up in landfills each year. However, we can all play a small part in the solution. Just to be sure, though biodegradable, the Blue Nitrile Gloves are 3x more puncture protective and more resistant than natural rubber to chemicals, oils and acids. Yet the subscription price is not only competitive, but more inexpensive than many food and medical grade disposable gloves.

Even the lucky Blue Gloves couldn’t help Chef Mick at Blackjack at Burbank Boys and Girls Club Casino Night 2023.

So with these benefits in mind, I took a little info gathering/sharing tour of a few local restaurants in Las Vegas. Of course, I also took the opportunity to try some the off-the-Strip cuisine. The first visit was to a place known for their Chicken and Waffles, which also benefit from their generous choice of condiments and sauces like the Sautéed Onion Gravy.

Fried Chicken Breakfast Las Vegas
Chef Mick had to try this this Fried Chicken Breakfast while in Las Vegas for the #BlueGloveGroup.

The next place had to have some of the best fresh baked Homestyle Biscuits I have ever tasted, and they are known for their famously spiritual and inspirational Gift Shops.

This last one is especially notable because the staff was already seen wearing blue disposable gloves. Could it be? Nah. They were as receptive to helping the environment as they were to throwing down some of the best Bacon Cheeseburgers to locals. Their version of Philly Cheesesteak was pretty authentic, but also benefits from a little hot sauce or steak sauce.

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Oct. 19, 2023 – PRLog — You may have seen them on TV or perhaps in person at upscale restaurants. Keenon and Bear brand robots are slowly becoming part of the worldwide culinary scene. They provide uniquely fun experiences to everyone who encounters them. Through a new program sponsored by Caddy Robotics, you can now bring this phenom to your next home gathering.

Originally designed for potential replacement of labor shortages, enlightened establishments are using these cute robots to assist waitstaffs with delivering hot food to your tables and to assist in bussing restaurants. Now you can have them help serve guests at your home or company event for as little as $500 an hour or $2500/wk*. Yes- cheaper than hiring more labor, but they still require a human touch to be effective. They also cannot replace competent Cooks in the kitchen.

Aside from Food Service, Caddy Robotics also supplies these mechanical pals for corporate offices and most importantly, to assist the Staff at Healthcare facilities and for private homes that can budget this modest expense. They are easy to use and can be customized to perform simple repeated tasks to allow workers to be more effective and productive. Without busting the bank, varieties of Caddy Robotics can also be purchased starting at only 14.5k.

Just in time for Halloween 2023, BBQRESCUES! will preview the new project at the Burbank Boys and Girls Club “Casino Night” fundraiser on Friday, October 20th. Chef Mick will be doing a variation of his famous Smoky Garden Guacamole Recipe. Instead of a Dip, it will be served as a Raw Vegan All-Natural Avocado Guacamole Sauce with Microgreens. The simple recipe is as follows:

Avocado Guacamole Sauce with Microgreens

2- Avocados (Peeled, Pitted in Chunks)

1 Cup Fresh Microgreens

1/2 Cup Fresh Cilantro

2 Tbsp Ground Cumin

2 Tbsp Verdant (Italian Herb Spice Blend)

2 Tbsp Virgin Olive Oil

1 Tsp SuperPowder (Freeze Dried Microgreens)

Finish with Squeeze of fresh Lime Juice plus Salt and Pepper to taste

Optional Fresh Chopped Onions, Tomatoes and slices of Lime for Garnish

Served with Smoked BBQ Rippled Potato Chips and/or Green Verdant Seasoned Tortilla Chips

Simple Preparation: Gradually add all ingredients to a Food Processor until blended into a smooth sauce. Carefully funnel liquid into Squeeze Bottle with 1/2 inch nozzle to decorate Chips and serving platter as you like. Enjoy!
