Dishing with Mark And Carrie - August 30th 2012

A Great Find on Date Night!
Every Monday its date night at our home. Yes, even after being together for 35 years we still have date nights! There has been a lot of talk by the Ybor residents about the great food at the new James Joyce Pub located on the corner of 8th Ave and 18th Street (old Mema's Alaskan Tacos). We decided to check them out on "Date Night." It was Fantastic in every way! When we entered there was the Legendary Ybor Bartender Brandon. After The Blue Dog Bistro closed everybody missed Brandon. He was looking great and was just as delightful as ever! There are fun specials every night and the Monday night special was 2 pound Maine lobsters for $9.95! We joked they must have forgot to put a 1 or 2 in front of the price. For the sides we decided to split mussels and the pile high homemade potato chips with toppings. Then came the hard part... what beer to try 1st. There are over 40 local, national and international beers here on tap! The service & staff were excellent. Needless to say the meal was GREAT! Looking around the room we stopped and said hello to 3 different Ybor Club owners and reporters from 2 newspapers. Looks like good news travels fast in Ybor. One BIG TIP that our friends told us was to arrive early and they were right! We arrived at 5:30 and by 6 pm every table and seat was taken. Now we can't wait to go back for crawfish night!
