RED Quick Bite #40: Nevermind's James Beard Burger Contender & National Scotch Day

RUN

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!

EAT

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.)

DRINK

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

RED Episode 3: Not Quite Friday 5K at JDub's Brewing Company

Welcome back to another full episode of the Run Eat Drink Podcast.  (It's only 6 minutes!) We had a mid-week trip to JDub's Brewing Company out of Sarasota, Florida.  Every Thursday they host a "Not Quite Friday 5K."  Those who complete the run get a punch card and if you complete two punch cards you get a great shirt! It is free to run with the group.  As soon as we arrived, we signed a waiver, we were shown a map of the course, and we were off!  The course goes through a park and past the Baltimore Orioles Ed Smith Spring Training facility. The scenery was nice, and the group was welcoming and fun.  It was a low pressure way to complete a short training run.

There are benefits to completing just one of these runs as well..  Runners get 10% off a tasty beer after completing their 5K. We chose to try their Poolside Kolsch, a lighter and refreshing beer, although, my favorite is still the Bell Cow.  A food truck, Fillaburger, was also waiting for us after the run and they had awesome stuffed burgers filled with mac and cheese or pulled pork and more!  

The environment is so much fun!  You definitely have to check out all the Star Wars art on the walls and the beer garden out back that you'll see in our podcast.

I will definitely be back to run on the next Thursday I have off to fill my punch card, try more from Fillaburger, and hang out at this cool brewery.  You should check them out when you are in Sarasota.

Quick Bite # 6: JDub's Brewing Company Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter on Nitro at Nice Guys Pizza

This week I was lucky enough to have a mid-week day off from work so we could go to our favorite pizza joint of all time, Nice Guys Pizza.  I will review their food in a later episode, but tonight, it is all about one of the beers they had on Nitro, JDub's Brewing Company out of Sarasota, Florida.  Bell Cow Milk Chocolate Porter is smooth, light bodied, and the prominent chocolate flavor makes it the perfect adult chocolate milk.
