RED Episode # 84: Dealing with the Taper, Meat Cottage, and Oktoberfezt at Coastal Dayz Brewery

RUN

This week, we talk about the taper that comes right before a race and your listener feedback about how to deal with it. 

EAT

This week we were lucky enough to go to Coastal Dayz Brewery for their Oktoberfest celebration featuring food from The Meat Cottage.  They have an incredible potato salad!  Dana had the Brewery Plate with Bavarian Pork Roast, grilled Krakauer, Bavarian Onion Sausage, and brown pork gravy with Sauerkraut.  Aimee got the Hunter Style Chicken Schnitzel with white wine mushroom cream sauce and French fries.  

DRINK
We featured Coastal Dayz Brewery back in Episode 59.   Coastal Dayz Brewery tapped their Oktoberfezt brew for their own Oktoberfest celebration.  We love their nautical theme and the cute dog behind the bar!  Their Märzen Lager is amber in color and has a slight sweet flavor with hints of caramel or butterscotch with a very subtle salty end to a sip of this original brew.  It was tasty and went well with the delicious German food we ate that night.  If you are local, swing by Coastal Dayz Brewery and give it a try!

BONUS!

We also talk about the upcoming Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend and our two-course challenge.  We will visit the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and discuss the food we might try at the different booths.  Are we headed in the right direction?  Let us know if there is another booth we absolutely must try!

THAT’S A WRAP

RED Episode # 83: Speed Work Training and Key West Recap Part 2

RUN

Last week, we recapped our time running the Southernmost Half Marathon in Key West.  This week we are taking what we learned and applying it to our training to prepare for the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend.  There is a tight time limit at Disney and we want to make sure we can reach the finish and explore and indulge. Trying to find the right run-walk-run ratio is on the list as well as making sure we reach the start line as healthy as possible.

EAT

Blackfin Bistro is a great option on Duval in Key West that is right across from Nine One Five, where we had amazing pasta before the race.  It was a cute little place with a bar and some booth seating inside and a cute patio out back where they could have concerts and parties with beautifully strung lights for night events.    Blackfin Bistro has a great burger that was recommended to us by a listener.  It is an 8 oz. Wagyu Burger for $22, cooked to order and including port wine mayo, shallot marmalade, and smoked Gouda fondue. It is served with some perfectly-cooked truffle fries.

DRINK

The Roost is a small bar off Duval with a great ambiance and tasty original cocktails.  They make their own ginger beer and put it in a Moscow Mule cocktail on tap.  I had their house bourbon, one of our favorites, Buffalo Trace, in a perfectly made Old Fashioned.  The bar seating is intimate and there are high back comfortable chairs at small tables all around.  They also sell small plates, we couldn’t help but have fruit, cheese, and charcuterie.  Also, we saw that they sell liquor, including Papa Pilar’s rum!  It was a friendly little place off Duval that we’d go back to again.  I want to try more of the small plates and original beverages.  They looked tasty!

RED Episode # 82: Southernmost Half Marathon, Nine One Five on Duval, and Caroline’s Other Side in Key West

RUN

This week, we recap our time running the Southernmost Half Marathon in Key West.  We report on the packet pickup, the race course, on-course support, and bling of course!  This is Dana’s first official half marathon back doing run-walk-run intervals.  For Aimee, it was a time to stay with Dana and try the short interval he was doing as well as a great training run to prepare us for Florida heat should we encounter it at Disney in November.  Aimee was so proud of Dana!  But we also learned by doing a race in the middle of training season what we needed to work on for the remainder of our training time for the Wine and Dine 2-Course Challenge. 

EAT

Last time we were in Key West, for the Hemingway Sunset 5k, we featured some spots off Duval.  This time, we had to carb-load at one of our favorite places on Duval in Key West, Nine One Five Restaurant and Bar.  We have been there many times over the years, even before we started this show.  We started with a cheese plate.  We had a Brie from France, Smokey offering from Oregon, and a Parmesan-like cheese from France.  The plate included port-soaked cherries, Marcona almonds, Florida Keys honeycomb and crostini as well as rosemary biscuits.  Then we moved on to pasta.  It  is simply amazing.  We had the Pappardelle with Kobe Beef Bolognese, Parmesan Reggiano, and Creme Fraiche.  It was hearty, filing, and the pasta was scratch-made.  In the past, we have also had the lobster ravioli and beef carpaccio.  All in all, we have not had a bad meal here.  It is a more expensive meal than those we have featured in the past, but it is totally worth it.  (They also have a homemade tonic for their gin and tonic drink. It is tasty, but we did not partake this time as we had the race the next morning.)

DRINK

After we achieved our goal, it was time to celebrate!  So we had a drinks at Caroline’s The Other Side.  We used to come to this same building when The Porch was here, and we discovered The Other Side  once before this trip, and listeners reminded us about it and said to come get the Banana Bread Old Fashioned and Hemingway Daquiri.  They did not disappoint.  So much so, that we stayed for another round and had the Southern Godfather and an “off the menu” creation from our awesome bartender, Michelle, a Peanut Butter and Jelly Old Fashioned with peanut butter on the rim of the glass!
