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!
