Usually, there’s a convoluted movie review on Saturday, but I didn’t have a movie of the week on The Less Desirables this week. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still go to a/perture cinema, the Official Movie Sponsor of The Less Desirables, and see a film. You most certainly should. But, today it’s something different.
Last night, The Beer Dads and our Very Good Friends, SRV+VernQuack all converged on the patio of Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen and Bar and enjoyed a night of Doctor Brownstone’s Sweet Summer Luv Luv Festival. It was not only great times with friends but it was 12 courses of food and plenty of libations to boot.
From scallops to veggie ceviche to cod to duck to rabbit to chicken. There was a bit of everything on our plates last night. And, while we didn’t all agree on which dishes were our favorites or even what we may have liked or disliked, we all agreed we had the swellest of times. That’s a word, I just made it up.
It was the first time we had all been together in a hot minute. When you have a pilot in the group, or the head of two organizations that have them both traveling, or someone moving or flood repairs, it’s hard to get everyone together. But, I’m thankful that last night was one of those rare moments that, hopefully, will become less and less rare.
So, to The BCPF, Beer Dad Jon, his “Pilot,” Beer Dad Paul, his “Pilot,” SRV and her real-life pilot, thank you all for a great time. Chef Tim Grandinetti, or Doctor Brownstone, thank you for an amazing evening of wondermous food from chefs all over North America. You made our night even more special!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Spring House Chef/Partner Timothy Grandinetti will host the annual outdoor grill-fest that celebrates the culinary talents of both local and nationally-renowned Chefs. Each evening during Sweet Summer Luv Luv, guests will enjoy multi-course tasting menus and “hot-off-the-grill” specialties that are planned, prepared and served by an all-star cadre of visiting Chefs.” – Doctor Brownstone’s Sweet Summer Luv Luv Festival
