Listen To Me Right Now. Drop What You’re Doing. Run (Don’t Walk) To Madfish. Belly Up To The Sushi Bar And Say This Word:

Omakase.
The greatest sushi chef in the history of sushi chefs will understand that you want him to create the most interesting, tasty, orgasmic presentation of sushi you’ve ever had the pleasure of eating.

Listen to me.

I’m not joking.

This is not hyperbole.

Orgasmic.

I have no idea how Jordan ended up at Madfish but every time he absolutely decimates my already high expectations.

Omakase.

Do it. Don’t question it. DONT order the safe tuna roll or California roll.

Omakase.

You’re Welcome.

The Rabbit Goes In For The Kill At Madfish- St Pete’s Beach

After the ball game we went to St Pete’s Beach to chill out for a bit and met up with Ricky Ticky Tampa, one of my close friends from my youth and brother to the Best Man in our wedding- DK.

Ricky has a penchant for knowing the very best spots to eat in whatever town he happens to be living and yesterday he kept his streak alive with yet another outstanding call foralate afternoon meal.

Madfish on St Pete’s Beach looks on the outside like any diner would but once you enter the doors you realize that this is no plain old diner (not that there would be anything wrong with that)

Inside the walls are adorned with dark wood paneling, the countertops granite, the refrigerators and appliances all top end. This place is actually a fine dining spot that also features some incredibly creative comfort food.

The service was spot on, the food outstanding. It seemed out of place on St Pete Beach where everything else is so laid back and less current. St Pete Beach seems like it has a lot of history and most of the places up and down that strip are still living in the past-some of it in a good way and some in a not so good eiighties redneck kinda way.

In any case the numerous awards that Madfish St Petersburg have won are well deserved and much like Ferg’s is a must visit place if you are going to a ball game at Tropicana field, Madfish is a must visit if you find yourself in St Petersburg. I would drive thirty miles out of my way to go to this place.

From Dave Sag on the Rhumb Line’s Thursday Night Blues Party

“Got a special show for y’all this week as I drag my dearest friend, John Rankin, out of the slickery swamp of Louisiana and wring  him dry on  Fred’s font of perpetual resurrection: the Rhumb Line. Educator, performer, vocalist, citizen, weekend father, this guy can do it all, and at the same time, too. He’ll be digging deep into that good ol’  Nawlins pile of steaming R&B, and throwin’ in a coupla originals to boot. You gotta hear this.

Behind him, pushing the beat will be our old buddy, Forrest “gump” Padgett on heart attack drums, Paul  Ahlstrand on tenor twelve sax, and yers trooly on base. C’mon down and tell John how much you like my punctuation!”

Buono ex post facto fiesta! Whew!…got thru another one without needing invasive surgery. What fun! Not being a “true” local, I dig it because I’m a true Italian.I know my whole family would dig it, too, especially if they were alive. Especially my aunt Tony.

We’ll be mewling and puking our way thru a special program of  national anthems and patriotic tunes. I have no idea what’s gonna happen, but ambulances will be on standby. Don’t miss it!
And if you still haven’t had enough,

on Saturday nite the Musical Surplus Club of Hong Kong is proud to present: MADHOUSE at the MADFISH. Grill, that is… on Pocky Neck, here in  Globster.  Johnny K. and the whole aggravation will be a-hootin’ and a-hollerin’ thru yet another evening of madcap escapades and musical mayhem.
