16Mar2013_1_Captain's-Shack_Buzz_RuebenLast night the Buzz had Leta Neustaedter for an evening of gentle music and a great voice. The special for the evening was a Reuben Sandwich with a side of Potato Salad. The sandwich was very good. Good taste and flavor. However, my pet peeve with Reuben Sandwiches generally here in the Boise Valley is that the sandwich does not come with a New York Kosher Dill Pickle. A while back we did a small survey – a search, if you will – for the best Reuben in Boise. There are some really good ones, Seasons In Eagle, which is now closed, and Cucina di Paolo on Vista in Boise, which makes their own Russian dressing. BUT …. neither place had the traditional dill pickle. You can see our deeper discussion of the Reuben, and Rachel, Sandwiches by Clicking Here. The Reuben at the Buzz was good, don’t get me wrong. The flavors were all there and the rye was good. Just no pickle. Let’s move on!

16Mar2013_1a_Captain's-Shack_Buzz_Panko-Chix_Roasted-Sweet-PotatoesWe also had, before the Buzz, a Butterfly Panko Chicken Breast, Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes and a nice Green Salad. I think we are getting ourselves ready for the big dinner today to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with Gail and Bob Parker and their family. This is always a great event. Lot’s of food – Corned Beef, Potatoes, Roasted Root Vegetables, Freshmade Soda Bread, among other great delights! Good friends and conversation! A maybe a wee bit of Whisky! Hmmmmm. Just a wee bit! I’ll see if I can remember to take some photos and post them here. Cheers!
