Dining out for AIDS/HIV at The Kitchen
Kelly and I went and checked out The Kitchen on Thursday night. They were participating in the Friends for Life Charity and we wanted to try it. It was a little odd going in bc it is in the old Caspian spot and I was at Caspian all the time, dancing, eating, hookah-ing. They changed the decor a little bit, mainly the lighting and some new bar cushions. They have all local artwork on the walls that is for sale, and at good prices I might add. I didn't take any pictures, I don't know what was wrong with me!?! Kelly ordered the shrimp cakes and loved them. I ordered the pulled chicken salad and didn't like it. It wasn't what I had in mind at all. It was an oil, chicken, onion, peppers, and dressing mix on top of salad greens. I took a bite and had to send it back. I COULD have eaten it and picked around at it, but since the place was new and the menu was amazing I wanted to try something good and that I wanted to eat. So I got the smoked ham and gruyere cheese panini with dijon mustard and a side of basmati rice. The panini was amazing, I ate every single bite of it. It was only $7 too. The rice was pretty good, and I am an expert, heck I am Persian! I wish I had some sumac in my purse to sprinkle on it. I don't think anything on the menu was over $20. The wine list was good and at around $6.50 for almost all the glasses, I thought it was a great deal. We had great service, a fellow UT Alum and dog lover. Ask for Chrissy when you go.
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
