Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

FFF-Big Gay Supper Club

Written by Patti on March 11th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Oh how I love to meet new folks. And the other night at The Big Gay Supper Club, I did just that.

Invited by creator, Rande Head, and held at Rosebud, a restaurant I’ve been dying to try, it was a fun night out.

Rande and his business partner, John, are the perfect hosts. And Rosebud went all out for the occasion. With Chef de Cuisine Nick Melvin in the kitchen, all sorts of treats awaited us. The menu? Here’s a peek.

My dining companions.

Housemade Pimento Cheese

Drunken cherry bread pudding was super yummy!

It was all totally delicious and so was the conversation! A great night. In fact, if you are wondering how to sign up for the next dinner, click on this link and check out their plans for St. Patty’s Day at RiRa! It is sure to be a blast.

Rande and John, hopefully next time I will see you around my table!
