REVIEW BY: Bruce Lachey. The show last night at Southgate was really fun, great sound. Kim Taylor opened, and she was WAAAY better than I thought she’d be. It seems hard for me to retain interest in a live performer after 6 or so songs…
It was Ted’s month to select, and he was joined by Tracy, Holly, Ed, Jay, Meg, Doug, John, Kristy, Chuck, Wendy, and Drew at the restaurant to sample excellent Turkish food. We started with a giant appetizer sampler platter, some calimari, artichoke hearts, and Turkish beers. Dinner was kebabs and excellent dishes prepared with yogurt and nice spices.
For dessert, we braved the elements and went up to Coldstone Creamery for dessert.
Another successful Happy Mouth!
For our first HAPPY MOUTH of 2004, the newly-engaged Kristy arranged for all of the “Mouthers” to meet at Pompillio’s in Newport, Kentucky. Pompillio’s was known for being the restaurant in the famous ‘toothpick scene’ of the 1988 movie Rain Man. Chuck, Ron, Tracy, Ted,…
Because of schedule madness, the members of the supper club weren’t able to meet during July. So we decided to do the first-ever “Happy Mouth Double-Header” in August.
So, in August, we met for lunch, a mid-afternoon activity, and dinner. It was a blast! Chuck & Holly picked (July & August, respectively). Chuck selected FAT FISH BLUE at Newport on the Levee where we enjoyed traditional New Orlean’s style food. A highlight was the “Carpetbagger” dessert that Wendy got — a chocolate ‘bag’ filled with chunks of cake, fruit, white chocolate mousse, and topped with whipped cream. Yum.
Our ‘afternoon activity’ was a trip to Newport Aquarium. Our group had a blast!
For dinner, we dined at Holly’s choice, Teak Thai restaurant in Mt. Adams. We dined on great mussels, sushi, and oriental dishes.
A great time was had by all!
