Past "Tweets"

The following are past "tweets" about restaurants that I and others have commented on through my Twitter account, prior to establishing this blog. Some of the sub-headings are hyperlinked to blog articles:

Kooky Canuck:

Just had the blackened catfish @KookyCanuck, with green beans and a salad with a sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. A healthy, awesome meal! (May 16, 2010)

The strawberry & jalapeƱo chicken wings I had yesterday @kookycanuck were amazing. An unlikely combination of ingredients, but brilliant. (June 13, 2010)

Kooky Canuck's Cookie A La Mode (chocolate chip & vanilla ice cream) was yummy as well. After eating that & the wings, I was ready for a nap. (June 13, 2010)

Sweet Grass:

For lunch, I had the Low Country Shrimp and Grits at Sweet Grass (@SweetGrassMem) and I loved it. (May 21, 2010)

KFC (Lakeland, TN):

Had the grilled Double Down at the KFC in Lakeland. Not as salty as the fried version, but it could've been better http://twitpic.com/1prd4z (May 21, 2010)

Melanie's Soul Food:

At Melanie's Soul Food, I had the BBQ ribs, collard greens & mashed potatoes w/gravy. Overall, the meal was average. http://bit.ly/bCHaJt [the restaurant's website] (May 21, 2010)

Frayser Maid:

Eating a Ham and Cheese omelet with hashbrowns. The meal is OK, for a "greasy spoon". Service is decent. (http://4sq.com/cvbp7K) (May 29, 2010)

Broadway Pizza House:

Had the cheeseburger at Broadway Pizza. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 5. Not quite as good as it's hype, but decent. (May 29, 2010)

Had the @HookandLadder Lighter (a light ale) with the perfect dish: a shrimp pizza from Broadway Pizza. Great combination! (May 31, 2010)

Blues City Cafe:

Tip: Bud Light Lime (a favorite) doesn't go well with BBQ ribs (at least not the ribs I had at Blues City Cafe; ribs were pretty good). (June 1, 2010)

Dino's Grill:

The beef lasagna at Dino's Grill was great, as usual. However, Dino's is the only Italian restaurant that I know of that doesn't serve wine. (June 3, 2010)

Cockadoos:

The barbecue omelet I had at @cockadoos was scrumptiously delicious! The pulled pork and sauce was the best I've had in awhile. (June 19, 2010)

The catfish & grits I had @cockadoos was awesomely delicious! Two thumbs up! (June 26, 2010)

Cafe Eclectic:

Just had a glazed donut at my new [and preferred] neighborhood bakery (@ Cafe Eclectic) http://4sq.com/4zgHbr (June 20, 2010)

Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken:

While listening to Howard Stern, Cyndi Lauper gave a plug to Gus's Fried Chicken, the best in Memphis. Check it out! http://bit.ly/aV7LXA (June 22, 2010)

Wild Bill's:

Although the "seasoned" wings I had at Wild Bill's last night were average, the Blues performances were awesome! Who needs Beale St.? (June 26, 2010)

Majestic Grille:
One of the best brunch offerings in Memphis. (@ Majestic Grille) http://4sq.com/6z789P (June 27, 2010)

Court House Deli:

RT @waskew: Court House Deli's crawfish etoufee gets my highest endorsement. [I'm including this because I know this place; makes great sandwiches] (June 30, 2010)

DejaVu:

The seafood gumbo at DejaVu was decent. Could've been meatier. Also, would've liked to have had something to crack open the crab legs. (July 2, 2010)

The Edge Coffee Shop:

The Edge's Avalanche milkshake is quite good. Ice coffee as a milkshake. (July 2, 2010)

The Blue Monkey:

Try the prime rib at the Blue Monkey. It's really good. The flatbreads (trolley car crisps) are also a treat and beer prices are reasonable. (July 3, 2010)

Bardog Tavern:

The breakfast sliders (with sausage) @bardogtavern were pretty good, despite the bottom buns breaking up. (July 4, 2010)

Lenny's (Midtown):

As usual, Lenny's Philly cheesesteak sandwich was awesome. Not the typical Philly, but with lettuce, tomato & mayo, it's great nonetheless. (July 4, 2010)

South of Beale:
RT @norococo: @southofbeale Thank you. Is your popcorn seasoning a secret recipe? Love it so. http://bit.ly/bo30FJ [I totally agree with this] (July 9, 2010)

In the future, I will try to coordinate my "tweets" and blog posts better.
