RED Quick Bite #40: Nevermind's James Beard Burger Contender & National Scotch Day
Okay. We "ran" to a couple of our favorite local restaurants to get dinner and drinks. Yes, we will get a training run in this weekend, but first we had to celebrate a great burger and National Scotch Day. We ran into a local American Ninja Warrior competitor that I am a huge fan of Morgan Wright, "the moose" took a photo with us!
We went to Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery in our hometown of Cape Coral to support owner Shannon Yates in the James Beard Blended Burger Project competition going on now through July 31st. The burger is a blend of a Grilled Angus Burger and Quincy FL Medium Mushrooms Century Beef Waygu Steak Tartar layered with arugula, onions, and Gruyere cheese on a Toasted 10Cent bun. We are still dreaming about it.
You should try it if you are anywhere near Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery and you should vote for this burger in the James Beard Blended Burger Project here: jamesbeard.org/blendedburgerproject/vote. (At the top of the page, click vote and scroll down past the description of the contest to where you can search entries. Type in Nevemind to get straight to their entry and vote.)
We were at Nice Guys Pizza to celebrate National Scotch Day, thanks to the recommendation of Murphy, the bartender at Nevermind, who told us that Nice Guys had a great Dalwhinnie 15-year old Scotch that we needed to try. Greg, one of the owners of Nice Guys Pizza, had their amazing bartender Jimmy Salemi put together a great beverage featuring Dalwhinnie 15-year old Scotch, that has no name, but will be featured on an upcoming cocktail menu.
THAT’S A WRAP
