Sorry if there was any confusion. Vic's spot on that a vacu-vin doesn't cut it with Champagne. There are some special tops to retain the bubbles . . . but finishing the bottle is the bast approach!
Since this is an article titled with Champagne I would not recommend using a vacu-vin on an open bottle of Champagne. I have found that Champagne goes downhill the fastest of all wines after the bottle is opened. Relax and just finish the bottle within no more than 3-4 hours of opening the bottle. Cheers. Vic
Hey GeekedChef, Florida Cane Distillery limits each distillery visit to 10 people. Apologies for any confusion!
When you say 10 people per tour does that mean your party must be 10 people or only 10 people (as in I could bring one other and join other groups to meet a number of 10)?
Just one beer week, and one beer festival to support it.
hmmm how many beer weeks does tampa have now?
Ryan...you might want to get ALL the facts about that night and do your research before writing this article. You failed to mention that two innocent patrons were severely attacked while trying to get in their vehicle, also there are a couple of misstatements, as I have a copy of the police report. Yes, it's true, that due to this fight they no longer are doing the Long Island Ice Tea night, but if you are going to mention any part of the fight and people who were injured, then mention ALL parties, don't leave out facts....that is just poor journalism.
Not busy any more...what a waste of space.....George come back!
We went on a Thursday and it was dead! Not sure what sensible voice is talking about - it's like a ghost town over there. Also what happened to the music? Instead of dj curated music during happy hour, they have something called rockbot where people pick what they want to hear from a very limited list. And you have to buy credits on the thing. And the selection stinks!! What were they thinking?
Well.Alibi, if you allow your staff to moonlite at other bars and take your clients..it seems lack of knowledge on the mgrs part or maybe the owners..but we went from the start and after all the really crap service and bad food on many visits..the towel here has been thrown in...its a shame but theres so much more than Alibi out there...
If you're not having fun doing something you love then you can't give it your all. It's apparent that Mark Dauck and his wife Cindy have found a way to enjoy themselves while giving back to the community. Cheers to them for sharing their bounty!
Thanksgiving, a tradition for most families, is still a tradition even if not everyone who's going eats the turkey and dressing grandma's been making for years and years.
The writers apparently aren't so knowledgeable about Alibi's Iced Tea night, or they would know the Iced Tea tradition hasn't been that much of a tradition for a long time. Anyone who has been going in recent times could see most of the crowd hasn't been drinking the Iced Teas. As unique and popular as those once were, $3 well drinks will probably appeal to more people now. And, while Thursdays at Alibi aren't nearly as busy as during the peak of the tradition, Alibi is still the busiest gay venue in Pinellas on Thursdays, updated and looking great, with a great staff. As the saying goes, for everything there is a season. Clubs evolve with the times or they die.
The Long Island ice teas aren't the only thing that changed recently. The menu was shortened, they are no longer open for lunch/brunch and the rocking chair/tables are gone - along with many familiar faces. It makes sense that they had to make changes to stay competitive but what we don't understand is the rudeness of the waitstaff. We have been regulars for the past couple of years and this was our neighborhood "pub." We visited 1-2 times a week for drinks or dinner. We were cool about the changes but the waitstaff we encountered were so rude the past two times, we stopped going. If the "new Georgie's" is too good to be decent to its customers, we'll take our money to other establishments.
Its just liquor, but it makes me a little sad! I moved away from St. Pete and remember all the good times when my friends and I would slip down to have a Thursday night drink and slink off home for work the next day. Its sad that people cant behave, but thats the world we live in
i look forward to coming to Treasure Island and enjoying a few of these. congrats Eric, your hard work is paying off. cheers!!
You forget PINDAR wines, The Elbow Room, and Claudio's in Greenport, Long Island....
Here is a link to the new shot menu! Go grab some! http://bit.ly/16A7PlK
Not one for beer, I'll vouch for Eric the cook. I tend to get the same thing over and over, because I enjoy it so much: fried chicken, wings, fried shrimp, thin crust pizza, or snow crab with a side salad. They are all excellent. We come from Largo, past dozens of beach restaurants with similar food, but the trip is definitely worth it. Not to mention the prices being so good too.
Awesome job B.T.G.. Can't wait to get out to Florida to try it. I'm down with the Porter , but IPA, that's pussy beer. Also, will you sign my rack? See you soon, Jizim P.
