October Monthly Dinner

Due to busy schedules, our October monthly dinner was delayed and we didn’t actually have it until November.  For our final monthly dinner of 2016, about a dozen of us gathered at Dockside Dave’s in Madeira Beach.  We enjoyed grouper, batter-fried, grilled and blackened, peel and eat shrimp, salad and of course, batter-fried onion rings.  A nice evening was had by all spending time with friends before the busy holiday season arrives, enjoying some good food.  We look forward to lots of good meals in 2017.

September Monthly Dinner


For September we returned to one of our favorite restaurants, Red Mesa in St. Petersburg. This is the location on 4th Street.  We haven’t been here for a few years. Almost a dozen people showed up for a delicious meal. So many delicious items on the menu that it was hard to decide our dinner choices.

We consumed a lot of chips and salsa as we mulled over the many dinber choices.

Many of us chose enchiladas. Some chose the enchilada trio which included a duck enchilada with raspberry chipotle cream sauce, a chicken enchilada with salsa roja and a crab & shrimp enchilada with poblana cream sauce. Kay got the duck enchiladas and three of us enjoyed the chicken enchiladas.

Jan tried the Chihuahua, which comes with a pork tamale with salsa roja, picadillo empanada with chile morita sauce, shredded beef taquito with guacamole and black bean sauce.

To wash it down we had some yummy sangria and margaritas and one beer.

Great evening with friends and good food.


January Monthly Dinner

We started off our 2016 monthly dinner series with a fun meal at Mid Peninsula Seafood in St. Petersburg.  We had about eight people or so show up. We were crowded around a round table, catching up with each other a few weeks after the holiday season.  We dined on red snapper, shrimp, gumbo, scallops, grouper and other good seafood.  We had a great time, despite the rain that greeted us in the parking lot after dinner.  We are looking forward to many good monthly dinners in 2016.
