Southaven- Pictures from the May Beer Tasting

We had another good crowd at our Beer Tasting last Wednesday. Our feature brewery was Anchor Brewing out of San Francisco. We tried their Liberty Ale, Anchor Steam and Anchor Porter. I think the Porter was voted the favorite by most of our guests, maybe that was because Josh paired it with a Chocolate Molten Lava Cake, YUM! Since we only had three beers from Anchor, we decided to throw in a vodka for the first course....CIROC Vodka, the world's first vodka made entirely of grapes. Everyone enjoyed their Mini Martinis! Our next Beer Tasting, "Beer From Around the World" will be on June 18th. We will feature Foster's Lager (Australia), Perroni (Italy), Pilsner-Urquell (Czech Republic), and Leinenkugel "Summer Shandy" (United States).

Next Beer Tasting: June 18th at 6:30pm

662.890.2467 for Reservations

Hope to see you there!

Wine Race 2008- Mesquite Chop House Southaven

For those of you not familiar with the Wine Race in Memphis, it is the weekend before Memphis in May and is a time for area restaurants to get together in competition and in fun. This year's featured country was Turkey and our team name was the "Istan-Bulls" .(Get it? Haha) Teams participate in a Parade, a "Queen of the Vine" Pageant, a Grape Stomp and a Relay Race in which the teams open bottles of wine and run with glassware and bottles on their tray. It is a great time for all who participate and our way of kicking off the busy month of May. River City Management Group had a team entered from almost every company restauraunt, Mesquite Chop House-Southaven, Rum Boogie Cafe, King's Palace, The Pig on Beale and PaPa Pia's participated. Everyone had a great time despite the rainy weather. I was very proud of our team and we came in 5th out of 40 teams in the Relay Race.
Come join us next year!

Downtown Memphis braces for Music Fans

Thousands will descend on Downtown Memphis this weekend for Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival. To those thousands we say this: you can only eat Corndogs and Funnel Cakes so long before it affects your outlook on life, and not in a positive way.

When that time comes, you will look at your friends or loved ones and say, "That's it! Let's go get a real meal!"

How does this sound: you start out with diver scallops topped with smoked bacon crumbles, roasted garlic butter and parmesan cheese with a nice glass of wine, small batch bourbon, or single malt scotch.

Then maybe you move to a salad course, maybe of the buffalo mozzerella or baby spinach variety.

Finally your server brings a Mesquite grilled 12oz hand-cut Prime aged filet that is so succulent you might just decide to spend the rest of Music Fest weekend exploring the rest of our menu.

How does that sound for the perfect Beale Street Music Fest weekend?
