Supper and a beer with “Little Nicky”

With just a few short weeks left to the Mid Term Elections I encourage everyone to vote and make a commitment to get their family and friends out to cast their ballots. At the printing of this article the San Diego County Registrar of Voters opened for early voting. Please get out and vote!
This week my scheduled guest was Community Volunteer Extraordinaire, Mr. Mike Williams. Unfortunately he was ill so I thought it would be fun to ask “Little Nicky” to join me. We selected Bourbon Street Bar & Grill. Our freakish thunder and rain storm last week created the desire for some good old fashion comfort food.
Ready to debrief from our work day and everything else we opted for a couple of items that do a great job in satisfying those cravings. They are Mac’ n’ Cheese and Kobe Beef Mini Burgers. This was my first time dining at Bourbon Street Bar & Grill since the remodel. They have done an outstanding job in making this one of the top places in town for our community to gather with good friends. The energy is great and the staff very sexy and friendly. You know me I want good eye candy along with my meal.
Little Nicky ordered a beer and I had a coke. While we waited for our dinner to arrive our server brought a canister of tasty potato chips. Weary of what this would do to my weight loss plan I trod lightly and only tasted a couple. When the food arrived my first thought at looking at the Mac’ n’ Cheese was oh my GAWD does this look good. The top perfectly crusted over adding to the taste and texture of the Smoked Andouille sausage with garlic, parmesan bread crumbs and baked gratin. I bet you can’t just have one bite Little Nicky spouted off. I laughed and said you’re probably right.
The Kobe Beef Mini Burgers were also a sight for sore eyes. There is just something about this combination that really soothes the soul. The burgers just perfect in size and the meat was out of this world. I ate one burger and had a small portion of the Mac’ n’ Cheese then asked Little Nicky to take the rest home. I have learned to eat smaller portions and still enjoy myself while dining out.
In looking at our experience here I would give them an overall THUMBS UP! This is a very casual place for relaxing and having fun with your good friends.
