RED Quick Bite #39: National Mojito Day 2018

It's National Mojito Day 2018!

We went to Nice Guys Pizza last year and Jimmy Salemi made us a traditional mojito on Quick Bite #7 of our show. This year, we took a page from Valerie Bertinelli and made a Grapefruit Mojito based on her recipe. Plus we featured our favorite hometown rum, Wicked Dolphin.  

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode #33: Freedom 5K and Gather in Cape Coral

RUN

It's 4th of July! Happy Independence Day to the United States of America!  We ran the Freedom 5K sponsored by the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce in our hometown to celebrate.  It was the first time we ever ran this 5K.  Be prepared for hills if you run this one!  You traverse the Cape Coral Bridge twice and part of an overpass in Fort Myers.  But it is a great view and watching the sunrise over the water while running to celebrate July 4th is an aamzing way to start the day.  Just a pro tip:  Try to do packet pickup prior to race day as lines the morning of the race can be a bit long.  Parking is also at a premium, so we recommend getting there as early as possible.  We tried to get there an hour before the race in order to find parking (about a half mile away from the start) and pick up bibs.

 

EAT

We went to a newer restaurant in Cape Coral to have some post-race brunch. Gather is nestled in Tarpon Point at the Westin Resort in Cape Coral.  The view of the water as you eat and drink here is beautiful.  We had a pancake and corned beef and hash.  It was mouthwatering goodness all the way to the last bite!

 

DRINK

Gather always has local beer on tap. Scotty's Bierwerks is right in Cape Coral.  They make a Hefe that is light, not hoppy and not overly carbonated.  With a low ABV and subtle flavors of coriander and orange, it was a perfect post-run beer.

RED Episode #32: Behind the Beer at Ulele Spring Brewery

RUN

Last weekend, we were in Tampa at the Richard’s Run for Life.  That allowed us to have a very special behind-the-scenes look at the original beer made at Ulele Spring Brewery.

EAT

Ulele is a restaurant inspired by Native American culture and the food available locally from our land and sea here in Florida.   The food and the beer go hand-in-hand to create an amazing experience at your table.  Can you say Alligator Hush Puppies and Charbroiled Oysters?  We can tell you they are delicious.  Look for more on those dishes in Quick Bites soon.

DRINK

Ulele Spring Brewery has an eclectic selection of original beers.  Tim Shackton, the brewmaster at Uele Spring Brewery took us on a tour of his brewery and told us some of the stories behind his tasty beer.

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode #31: Richard’s Run For Life and Ulele in Tampa

RUN

This weekend, we are in Tampa at the Richard’s Run for Life .  This is a family-friendly 1-mile or 5k distance.  It is not timed, and you can run or walk it at your own pace.  On the beautiful Tampa Riverwalk, this run starts and ends at Ulele, a restaurant that has been here since 2014 and is part of the Columbia Restaurant Group.  100% of the proceeds from this event go to the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa.

 

EAT

Ulele is a restaurant inspired by Native American culture and the food available locally from our land and sea here in Florida.  I got our cameraman to give an impromptu review of his Tomahawk Chop.  It looked amazing!

 

DRINK

Ulele Spring Brewery has an eclectic selection of original beers and wines.  There are original cocktails as well. But a beer flight was in order.  These are original beers you can only get at Ulele and they are the perfect compliment to our meal.  

 

THAT’S A WRAP

We’ve run so many great races in our first year.  From Walt Disney World to Disneyland as well as Atlanta and so many great destinations in Florida, it was a great first year.  We supported many worthwhile charities, too.  In this segment, we take a look back at some of the great moments on the podcast.

Did someone say eat?  We’ve done a lot of that this year.  There were so many delicious dishes, we had to take a look back at some of our favorites.
