Memorial Day $5 BBQ @ Harvest Park Bowl, Brentwood

Right after I ordering the $5 TRI-TIP DINNER for myself (at the Memorial Day BBQ) my neighbor at the bar "a dice rolling queen named Alice" got her $5 chicken dinner. I knew I wanted one of those too. Jim Wangeman, the owner at HP, tells me they do this about once a month. So, keep your nose in the SPOTLIGHT every week and I'll keep you posted on the next one. (BTW Happy Birthday to Jim, 77, he's been a good friend to a lot of people for a very long time. Many more to you).

I'm very fortunate to stay as busy as I am. With one new fully responsive website almost ready for launch, another one I hope to get design approval on today and another one waiting in the on deck circle I'm very happy and a grateful man. Clue to the one on deck. Can you guess who?

Louie xiii Cognac

It looks like there's about $1,200.00 (wholesale) left in the bottle. This cognac is about $2,500.00 a bottle in the US. The traditional restaurant markup is 400%. With 25.5 shots (1 1/2 oz) in a liter bottle. That means shots must be about $450 a piece. If I win the lotto we'll go finish the bottle. This photograph was taken by Brentwood photographer Mike Oria. I wonder where he took it? Take a guess, I will tell you if you are right.

I Think This Restaurant Has It

And no I am not buying you a shot if you guess right unless you give me your winning lotto ticket.

Note: Next SPOTLIGHT will be delivered Thursday 6/4/2015
