next time try out the tableside sauteed oysters!
I'm usually a little skeptical of restaurants trying to cover too many countries, but you sold me. I'm going!
I don't participate in this diet, but regardless, it looks really tasty and well plated also.
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 couldn't fin anything in the article about beans and rice or Neil Diamond.
Great article! Thank you!
Petra, thank you for your comments!
I'll be sure to update the story.
Yeah Skips is a great place but you have gotten a lot of info wrong my dear. First of all there has not been real food there for years...so no beans and rice.
Neil Diamond has been out of the jukebox for just as long and there has never been blue moon.
But everything else is just right. It's the best place to get a cold one and mingle with the low key locals.
But one more thing was forgotten to mention besides the awesome bartender Karen, there is also a hottie and sweet former marine whom has been serving there at nights for almost 7yrs now. (Tristan) is by far the best bartender you will find with not only always a kind hand to give but keeping the conversation going.
It sounds like you have enjoyed skips before but you might want to drop back by for some updates and a beer.
Really want to try and wanted to learn,
My favorite coffee shop and the chicken Caesar wrap is so good and refreshing! Love this place!
i look forward to coming to Treasure Island and enjoying a few of these. congrats Eric, your hard work is paying off. cheers!!
Derek: Did you read any of my prior comments where I explained in detail why the sign bothered me? Makes me wonder if you can read.
You forget PINDAR wines, The Elbow Room, and Claudio's in Greenport, Long Island....
Thanks for sharing this fantastic recipe - We are crazy for Indian foods, just moved here from NYC - where is the best curry in tampa? Suggestions please ; )
i am going to marry this man!
Agree, Saigon Deli, the real one, not the other one across the street.
