Places not to watch the Super Bowl, starting with Jack's Bistro
I just received the weekly email from Jack's Bistro, which included this intrusion from chef Ted Stelzenmuller, who typically leaves the restaurant's correspondence in general manager Christie Smertycha's capable hands. Here's Ted:
Because I am so excited about this Sunday's specials; I (Ted) wanted (was coerced) into writing part of this week's email! Since the local football team is not playing this Sunday, we decided to go all out in the kitchen to relieve the blues & transport you to a fun culinary dimension. Here's what we are cooking up for Sunday: crispy skin suckling pig served as it should be...by itself with spicy Chinese mustard, roasted turkey legs, massive chicken wings, Asian pancakes with sweet soy + chicken (they're kind of like Chinese breakfast pancakes), an amazing clam soup inspired by our trip to Hong Kong, and what I call Wan Chai dumplings. We are also going to be serving our normal Sunday night $12 entrees at the bar. I promise they will be to die for as well. The culinary juices are flowing and I want you all to stop in and have a taste.
That's going to be hard to top, but if you know of any other television-free zones, especially places that are doing something special this Sunday, post them here. Here's a list of places we came up with for avoiding Sunday afternoon Raven's games -- some, but not all of them, would still apply to Sunday evenings, too.
The worst place to go not to watch the Superbowl is the Brewer's Art -- it's staying shut on Super Bowl Sunday as it has been doing for the past few years.
