Hoppin’ John on New Year’s Day

On New Year’s Day, serve hoppin’ John and other Southern comfort food 

 via the LA Times

“For some reason New Year’s Day at my house always means hoppin’ John, the starchy stew of black-eyed peas and rice that is the New Year’s dish across most of the South, as well as vast pots of collard greens, goose-fat red beans, and the seafood gumbo my friend Jervey makes at my stove.

New Year’s Day leans Southern. Hoppin’ John is the perfect dish for a lazy, gracious open house. It tastes good with either bourbon or Champagne.

The black-eyed peas, which resemble coins if you squint a little, are supposed to represent money in its abstract form. The collards represent folding green.”

Hoppin’ John Recipe

Jonathan Gold at the LA Times is correct. Hoppin’ John dinner is a Southerner’s New Year’s Day tradition and a chance to use smoked meats for the last holiday of the season. Use our Collard Green Recipe for your 2015 good fortune, and enjoy spending the day with family reminiscing on the past year and looking ahead to the next!

Happy New Year Friends! 

Oktoberfest 2014

Oktoberfest-14-slideOktoberfest on River Street is one short week away! Come out to the river on October 4th to witness or participate in the greatest sausage eating contest around! 

Never heard of our infamous Sausage Eating Contest? Well things are about to change! Just take a look at last year’s post >> Oktoberfest of the River 2013 <<

We team up with our local distributor Ambos Seafood to provide an unlimited amount of smoked sausages to those brave enough to stand in front of a crowd and devour sausage until they can literally eat no more. Last year, our reigning champion from the prior two years was ‘out-eaten’ by Corey Fisher from Charlotte, NC who ate 16 1/2 Roger Wood sausages in under 5 minutes. You read that number correctly… 16.5 Roger Wood Sausages. Who will win the bragging rights this year? 

There will be 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners. The FIRST Place Winner is awarded a CASH PRIZE. Second and Third Place Winners receive a goodie bag of prizes.
