So what do you guys want to do about food at the food stops? For Beachwood and Blue Palms Iím thinking fixed menu (probably 3 items from the regular menu) and at Pizza Port Iíll probably have to call in an initial order of pizzas after we leave Tustin. Not quite sure about Taps just yet, thinking small lunch.
Pizza Port, itís the last stop Friday, I think we might as well just take it easy and let everyone order as they would normally there.
Blue Palms: breakfast burrito bar. This is maybe the best idea Iíve ever had. If not, well a normal brunch with regular breakfast foods for a modest price, nothing too fancy like truffled eggs or blue cheese blintzes are necessary. Not breakfast related, but what if fuego steak melts somehow took slider form... or wait what if it somehow became breakfast food...
Beachwood, set menu is a good idea, bbq and a couple sides for a set price, with an advance idea of how many people want to buy it... should get us through relatively quickly on the way to the Grand Tasting.
I suggested to Gabe the idea of a fixed price ($10-$15) and limiting the menu to 3ish options. He correctly pointed out that covers only the entre but heíd throw in a house beer as well for that price and of course make pairing suggestions. Iím thinking weíll go that route, unless there are some better alternatives suggested. Any beer beyond that will be regular price.
Anyone need a reason to be on the Friday bus? AleSmith is sending a keg of brewers blend Speedway with Vietnamese coffee. Depending on how much of that you hooligans drink a growler or two may make an appearance at the grand tasting.
