Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse

OK, OK, I admit it -- sometimes, I Google my own name. Yes, I know, it's super lame. I like seeing where my stories end up online, that's all.

Anyway, you know when you start to type something into Google's search bar and it gives you suggestions? Well, as I was typing my name in, the words "Sam Seltzer's Restaurant" popped up. Intrigued, I clicked on it ...

It just so happens, there is a restaurant chain named Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse in Florida. How awesome is that?
I love the name. It sounds like a restaurant you'd run into while cruising west on Route 66 in my '66 Chevy. I picture the owner as a rootin' tootin', 10-gallon hat-wearing feller.
What's even more awesome is, the Web site plays smooooth jazz! What could be better than a thick steak and some smooooth jazz?
Nothing. That's what.

This summer we went to one in our usual vacation spot in Sarasota, FL - it was good food and great service, and kids under 12 eat free, which was very cool.

Coincidentally, we were discussing the Ravens, and the table next to us piped up that they were from Maryland (Severna Park), and that the grandmother there lived in Timonium (we're in Towson). Small world!

This reminds me to tell you Sam's Kid in Fells was open when I passed last night. Looked like the front room is small tables and modern couches, and the back has a small bar with a big flat screen.

Sam's Kid? Wow, what an amazingly terrible name. Plus it sounds like Sam Skid. I do like Son of Sam's. Or Sam Skid's Sizzlin' Steakhouse
