Back at Owens

As most of your know my first review was of Owen’s Pub in North Wildwood. Let me just say I’ve been back twice since Christmas alone.

The service from Owen’s is always stellar. I had Jenny again the first time I went back and she could remember what I drank months ago and what my vegetarian friend had to eat that night (which he couldn’t remember himself). Jenny was, of course, super attentive. Then I went back a few nights later and had Mary, who was equally as awesome. She was able to sit and just hang out with us since it was the end of the evening. It was nice. You really feel like you have friends who work at Owen’s not just someone doing their job.

My food was fantastic as usual. The first time I got a chicken caesar salad. I eat kind of slow and it took me an hour to finish this salad it was so massive. It was probably one of the best chicken caesar salads I’ve ever had. My next night out I got one of their burgers (without the bread) and it was fantastic. Cooked to perfection I must say. I always get burgers well done and usually they come out charred. This was different. It was actually cooked correctly. You should applaud yourselves on that one Owen’s.

I honestly can say Owen’s has become one of m favorite places in town. I can’t wait to go back for “name that tune” night or one of their other festive evenings.

Drinking Responsibly

We’ve been having a great time the past few months exploring different bars.  I love going out and sampling all types of drinks so everyone knows the best places to go in Cape May and Wildwood.  However, I thought I would share this article that came out November 9, 2012.  The article states that the  closer one lives to the bar the more often one is prone to drinking.  When they say close to the bar they mean within half a mile (aka walking distance).  So, while I want us to go out and have fun I hope all my readers are drinking responsibly.

A Review of the Dogtooth In Wildwood, New Jersey

Friday evening I went to Dogtooth in Wildwood.  I’ve never been to the Dogtooth before so I went in with a completely open mind.

I was pleasantly surprised with the decor.  Certainly classier than the name leads on.  It was “Name that Tune” night so the bar was completely crowded.  I waited about an hour to find enough bar stools to fit my small party of three.  My Cosmopolitan was also quite good.  The DJ Gabe was great too.  He literally played the most random assortment of music I’ve ever heard.  Anything my friend requested he was more than willing to play.

What Makes a Great Bar

I wanted to dedicate this post to things I thought everyone should know before we begin our adventure so that we are all on the same page.  I’ll take the time to explain what makes the perfect mixed drink, perfect bar food, and what overall makes for a great bar, etc!

First let’s start with the perfect cocktail recipe.  There is a secret to making the perfect libation.

  • If the drink is too sweet do not count on many people ordering a second.
  • On the other hand, when the bartender thinks they are helping out the customer by making the drink incredibly strong a second one is going to be ordered way later than normal.  No one wants to choke down a Cosmopolitan.
  • The perfect cocktail has three parts to it.  The liquor, the sweet and the sour.  Of course we can play around with these things but that is the basic cocktail.
