RED Quick Bite #36: Chicken Parm at Nice Guys Pizza 5th Anniversary

Nice Guys Pizza is a place we have talked about and we have shot Quick Bites from on several occasions.  This week, they celebrate their 5th anniversary.  We are so honored and humbled to have been some of their first customers.  If you are ever in our hometown, you need to stop by this amazing hole-in-the-wall pizza place with delicious food (not just pizza), amazing cocktails, and tasty craft beer.  For the next several episodes, we will feature cocktails, beer, and outstanding food from this place that is so close to our hearts.  

Greg and Jovana, the owners of this outstanding pizza joint, welcomed us, made us feel at home, and gave us support through some of the happiest, challenging, and emotional times in our lives.  This is like a second home to us.  To you, it may be the same thing.  Or we may be introducing you to this very special place.  Either way, everyone needs to experience the great food and terrific people who make up the Nice Guys Family.

This Quick Bite features Point Ybel Brewing Company Pendennis the Menace and a great speical from the menu the Chicken Parm sandwich.  In addition, we got a new menu item, Ranch Tots.  They were a side for us, but they can be ordered as an appetizer with lots of tasty sauces!  It is all mouth-wathering to say the least!

Stay tuned throughout this wee and next for Quick Bites as well as a full episode featuring great food and beverages from Nice Guys Pizza.

RED Episode #23: Tampa Beer Run Winter Edition

RUN

Last June, we launched our podcast, and the first run we ever featured was  the Tampa Beer Run.  A link to the first episode is hereTampa Beer Run  is not only special because it was our first, but because it benefits My Hope Chest, which helps those recovering from breast cancer with reconstructive surgery costs.  This was a great run in Al Lopez Park and with 4 different beer stops featuring samples from local Florida breweries and one from Georgia.  Don't forget about My Hope Chest’s upcoming GloWalk in April, too, which will be a great time running through the historic Tampa RiverWalk at night! 

EAT

Datz is a great place to eat in the Tampa area, only blocks from Bayshore Boulevard, a beautiful stretch of sidewalk, maybe even the longest in Florida, where you can look out over the beautiful Tampa Bay and where we ran Gasparilla in February. Datz features classic comfort food with a twist, has a great brunch menu, and some creative cocktails as well as an outstanding beer list.

DRINK

On the run, there were four beer stops featuring the following brews:

#1 Terrapin Hi 5 (IPA)

#2 Coppertail Unholy

#3 Motorworks Cruiser Kölsch

#4 Six Ten Tent Beer Lager

Our favorites were the Motorworks and the Six Ten.  We can’t wait to have them again.

At Datz we had a great cocktail featuring coffee and a powdered doughnut as a garnish!  Look for it on a Quick Bite in the coming weeks!

THAT’S A WRAP!

RUN

The Donna Marathon Weekend got off to a great start.  We decided to experience as much of the weekend as possible by completing the Booby Trap Challenge, which is the 10K, 5K, and Half Marathon during the weekend.  And who are we kidding, we love the bling!  This episode features the 10K and the 5K.  Both races give runners a great way to see downtown Jacksonville and the eclectic scenery there.

EAT

We were starving when we finsihed our last race, and we had heard great things about The Maple Street Biscuit Company. We decided to try their waffle, complete with bacon and asiago cheese in the batter, salted butter, and warm made-from-scratch maple syrup.  Don't worry, we tried biscuits and their biscuit sandwiches that we will feature in upcoming quick bites, too.

DRINK

Main & Six is one of the newest breweries in the Jacksonville area, and it pays tribute to the community.  Co-Founder Dennis Espinosa talks about how he got started and takes us through a flight of his tasty beers.  Our favorite, of course, was the Hazelnut Coffee Stout, which was a collaboration with Social Grounds Coffee Company.  Although Main & Six has only been open for three months, the beer is on point and it is a spot you need to visit when in Jacksonville.

THAT’S A WRAP!
