Lemon butter chicken served on angel hair pasta. Pan-seared with a lightly delicious lemon butter sauce, these chicken breasts come served on some great angel hair pasta. We remember Fraulein Maria singing about the lonely goatherd, “High on a hill was a lonely goatherd, lay odl lay odl lay her hoo. Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd, lay odl lay old loo. Folks in a town that was quite remote heard, lay odl lay odl lay her hoo….” We loved the dancing goats and the little brass band with puffy cheeks. Well, this pasta will have you yodeling up and down the street like Maria and the von Trapps. Yes, it will — and you’ll have a herd of goats playing the orchestral score.

Friday, October 28

Shrimptastic Friday: Shrimp and grits ($15). Shrimp on baked garlic cheese grits (crispy or creamy), $15. Shrimp lovingly cooked with chopped veggies in a delicious sauce served over baked garlic cheese grits (either crispy or cream) will make you toot your horns up and down the street. Referring to Marc Chagall’s La Mariée, Julia Roberts’ character Anna, says, “It feels like how being in love should be. Floating through a dark blue sky.” Her new friend William, played by Hugh Grant responds, “With a goat playing the violin.” “Yes,” Anna smiles, “happiness isn’t happiness without a violin-playing goat.” Well, that says it for our shrimp and grits. Happiness isn’t happiness without some shrimp and grits on Friday — and a violin-playing goat floating through a dark blue sky. Come join us, we’d love to se you!

Famous Quotes

“You are going to lose this World Series and you are never going to win another World Series again,” Tavern Owner William “Billy Goat” Sianis yelled when denied entrance to the Cubs World series game in 1945. Of course, he brought his pet goat Murphy with him, and, well, they were both ripe in odor, so the gate sent them home. The Cubs lost, and the Curse of the Goat began. It just doesn’t make sense — Sianis had a ticket for the goat…. Will the Cubs break the curse? Check out the origin of the story here and here.
