So I tend bar a few evenings a week now at Tricky Fish. Joint I've reviewed and was a fan of for a year before I started working there. It's a funky beach shack feel. Deck out front. Shrimp, Catfish and Mahi-Mahi tacos, oyster baskets, pork bbq, WV classic hot bologna sandwich with the owners soon-to-be famous Bog Sauce (spicy, sweet, deep bbq), hush puppies. NTN Buzztime Trivia inside.
I lurve blackened, grilled shrimp soft tacos. I devour house dogs with chili and slaw. I can't keep away from the hush puppies.
I have a small bar at the back.
We have fun there.
We have a kitchen mascot now...
And we had some extra crab last night, so Chris decided to whip up staff dinner after we slowed down for the night...
Yeah, that's a crab omelet with Spicy Trick Sauce and a blackberry gastrique. Folks, it did not suck. Sweet crab and egg with a tangy sauce and a sweet finish from the gastrique. Um...yeah, I like working there.
And now I'm off to Cafe Cimino with the owner, the Chef at our sister-joint Bluegrass Kitchen (BGK), and another co-worker who spits mad rhymes...
Backup there was Mike Darby and the House of Cards from New Orleans. They rocked the parkin' lot at our Memorial Day picnic.
Chef Gary from the BGK rocked the grill with Grilled Peruvian Chicken with ghost chili, sambol/lemongrass pork skewer burritos, jalapeno/panko crab cakes, and jumbo gulf prawns.
It looked like this...

The truth comes out: the reason I've never been able to get hush puppies @ TF is that you're snacking on all of them!
You have to remember Bethie, I get in to the store at 5pm, so I've been missin' out too. But Chris has upped the prep amount to accommodate the demand, so it should become a 'problem solved' situation soon.
