Last week the divas met to discuss their summer schedule of events and stories to cover. We met at the Black Dog in Bayfield and were greeted by owner Kathleen Sloan-McIntosh. She mentioned that the new menu was coming out the next day and offered us a sample of two of the new menu items. We tried two of the three amigos and yummy kofta patties in pitas. They were both really yummy and I probably could have stopped eating, but of course, that is not my style! We still had lots of “business” to discuss, so we all ordered. Lisa, Maegan and Trista all had one of the famous burgers and I had the scrumptious chicken curry.
The Black Dog Pub and Bistro has a great menu and a huge variety of on tap beverages and whiskey! Kathleen’s husband Ted is a sommelier and has helped us out at Taste of Huron many times.
The prices range from $5.00 to $16.00 for lunch and $5.00 to $30.00 for dinner. A bonus of this place is the great music that restaurant manager Peter Meades brings in. For more information on upcoming events and specials visit: www.blackdogpubbistro.ca
Oh! for a taste of what they have coming up at the Bayfield Concert Series:
Andy Kim Songs & Stories on Saturday, June 16, 2012
Joel Plaskett with Josh Geddis on Thursday, July 19, 2012
5 MAIN STREET N., BAYFIELD ONTARIO – PHONE (519) 565-2326
OK, so this is very big and very exciting news for me! As I mentioned last night i went to Thyme on 21 for dinner, after that I decided to head to the Black Dog to have a drink and watch the Leaf game. I sat up at the bar and looked up, and it was amazing. Right in front of me was the RADLER! Now, if you are unsure of what the Radler is, I will now inform you/change your life forever. The Radler is a beer that is brewed in Austria from the company stiegle. Now what makes this beer so special you ask? Well, what makes it special is that the Radler is a grapefruit beer! Its light, a little fizzy and tastes like grapefruit! It is ridiculously delicious! Especially on those hot summer days! Its absolutely refreshing. Its unique because its only 2.5%, so you can drink quite a few, and not make a total fool of yourself which is always nice. I know the Radler is nearly impossible to get on draft, but leave it to Ted ( the owner of the Black Dog) to find a way to bring it back! I hope you are all as excited as i am about this! O and a little side note, if you do want your Radler to me a wee bit stronger than a 2.5%, you can always add a shot of vodka to it, little pricey, but totally worth it! If you need to get a hold of me in the next few weeks, I’ll likely be at the pub having a Radler or two :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
