Smoke Daddy

Smoke Daddy (If you look close you can see Dallas and Josh)


Sola Malasadas (after Sugarlips ate a few)

Ribs from Blue Bayou. Liked the meat and the grill, but didn’t love the sauce.

New favorite drink.

Dallas and I met up with Todd, Kelly and Chad at Ribfest on Saturday. As the name implies, this is a festival based around live music and ribs. This was the 14th year of Ribfest and about 20 different vendors participated. We spent a lot of time by the Smoke Daddy smokers and visited Josh. I also wanted to check out what Sola was offering and conveniently enough, the Sola booth was right next to Smoke Daddy’s. Even better, Chef Wallack was there. Dallas and I chatted with her a bit about the restaurant and Hawaii and she was kind enough to hook us up with some short rib sandwiches and later on some malasadas! YUM! We haven’t been to Sola for a few months and need to get back soon!

While the guys stood around and drank some beers, Kelly and I took a walk around and actually split some ribs. We also discovered our new favorite drink of the summer, Lime-a-Rita. I really did not like Bud Light Lime when I tried it last summer and everyone (Jess, Sara) was raving about it. The good thing about Lime-a-Rita is that it doesn’t taste anything like Bud Light. It’s sweet and tangy and limey and margarita-y. I suppose it’s probably best poured over ice, but we just drank it straight from the can.

After sweating it out at Ribfest (it was something like 90 degrees outside), we headed to Timo’s roofdeck birthday party. And after that to Brian and Sara’s roof deck to watch the Pacquiao/Bradley fight. I could have cared less about the fight, but it was a nice night to be outside on roof decks with friends!

Food From Jen’s 40 Years

June 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Bucking the Reid family tradition of having elaborate games at 40th birthday parties (see Brian, Jill, Chad), Jen opted for a food and drink extravaganza in the backyard. Chad and Jen chose 4 different periods of Jen’s life and prepared food and drinks from each of those phases. What an awesome idea! Luckily the weather cooperated, because there were probably 30+ people there to celebrate with Jen. It was a little chilly, but overall good. I had so much fun stuffing my face on all of Jen’s favorite food and drinks! Plus, so many of our good friends were there. And it was sunny. Sunny! What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon/night.

Here’s what we had:

First course: Belgium, where Jen was born
Food: Cheese plate
Drinks: Leffe & Jupiler beer, white wine, or gimlets

Second course: Newport, where Jen grew up
Food: Grilled shrimp, steamed clams & mussels
