Smoked. Smoked salmon. Lox. Mouthwatering, delicious pink fish. Smoked.
Nelly himself, of Nelly's Hot Smoked Salmon fame, will be at the venue serving his very own smoked salmon, homemade traditional bagels (Big Hole Bagels) and more.
Listen. I'm from Maritime Canada and I know about smoked salmon. Nelly's from the west coast, and they know salmon, too. If you like salmon (and who doesn't?), you're in for a true culinary treat if you come down to Fashion Billiards on the 27th.
It ain't often you get "pool tournament" and "culinary treat" in the same place. Nelly's salmon has to be tried to be believed.
We'll also have Poppa's Pizza delivery happening through the day - pizzas, subs, sandwiches, pita wraps... Patrick's a Canadian with years of experience in the restaurant business. He makes great food and he'll be around the venue. There's cheap drinks, and Patty's never far from cheap drinks.
On the booze front, we have about 20 or so pubs offering specials for players and friends when we head out on the town. (Deep breath) Free shot of tequila, free cocktail, $50NT Heinekin, free Bellini, free Corona, a slew of buy-1-get-1-free drinks, free finger food, $100 NT plate of wings...something special in every one of the sponsor pubs.
There's a big screen TV in the place. I plan on running The Hustler and The Color of Money. Well...maybe just The Hustler. If anyone has any suggestions - there's probably going to be some sports on that folks will want to pay attention to: NHL, NBA...it is a Saturday and it's playoff time.
Are any snooker players coming out? I'm hoping to be able to squeeze in a few frames. Opportunity doesn't present often enough these days, and I wouldn't mind rattling a few long blues in the corner jaws.
After the pub crawl...expected to wind up around zero dark early at Sound Garden (that's the free shot of tequila)...we have the perfect finale at The Dive. Parker is gonna open his sidewalk greasy spoon at 6 AM to offer the survivors a fantastic western breakfast. Omelettes, eggs, french toast, bagels, bacon, ham, sausage, salsa, OJ, coffee and HASH BROWNS. Breakfast is breakfast, but hash browns!!!
