Cheese balls at Quigley's

My new favorite bar food are the cheese balls served in bowls and put on the bar at Quigley's Half-Irish Pub in Ridgley's Delight.

They come sprinkled with Old Bay, which (as any true Marylander will know) makes them awesome.

Hmmm ... this could very well be a delicious (pun!) Fab Five Friday topic.

Next week, perhaps?

Side note: Owner Jim Quigley said he reads the blog.

If that's true, than I'm curious to know: Where did you get the idea for the Old Bay cheese balls? 

Leave a comment and let me know.

Favorite pub grub food - anything that is free.

Seriously, only a few bars put out snacks anymore. OPI has party mix, racers and dellaroses (sometimes) have peanuts. But where are all the snacks going?

Sam, if you talking about paying for bar food, nothing beats a big old cheeseburger. Extra grease please!

They were gross. But excellent for pitching practice.

What did you think of the Old Bay dusted Boh-tini?

Cy, I'm all for Old Bay. Everywhere. All the time.

spoken like a true marylander...

remember.....It ain't easy being cheesy!!!!
