It is Thursday night. What a great excuse to go to the 'City', grab a bite and see a show. We won free tickets to see 'Sandy Hackett's Rat Pack" at the 'Marines Memorial Theater'. We had a big decision of which one of the hundreds of great restaurants to eat. Guy Fieri of 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' helped us with our decision. He visited a great Dive Bar located in the Outer Richmond district of San Francisco. The Tee-Off Bar & Grill is a local watering hole that just so happens to serve some fantastic grub. We watched the clip below and it was a done deal.

I still have not learned my lesson about bringing a back up camera. After taking a not so good opening shot the battery died. Luckily this clip will show you exactly what we ordered. The pork chop and mac & cheese were even better looking and tasting then the show. The pork chop plate was a symphony of colors and tastes. The yellow corn, green asparagus, achiote red with black hatch marked pork chop, multicolored apricot relish was all placed around a mound of white garlic mashed potatoes. This was a taste explosion. The mac & cheese was a cheesy gooey plate of comfort. This was washed down with some tasty micro beers. The prices were unbelievably reasonable. This was a true find!

Tee-Off Bar & Grill

Our bellies were bursting with comfort and joy while we watched the Rat Pack work their magic. It was a wonderful Thursday night. Next time I will bring a back up battery.

I love the "five-star dive bar" description. That pork chop looks and sounds unbelievable. I hope you try to recreate it and post about it. Fabulous concoction.

Speaking of rat pack, ours just got more interesting. gawd, I can't believe I'm already talking football and it's not even May.

highandranchfoodie, Yes, that sounds like fun recreating that dish. There was a lot of flavor going on.
John Elway reminds me of a rat. I probably can never set foot in Denver for saying that.

Rev. Biggles, You set the time and we will come pick you up for food adventures!

That looks like a _great_ evening! My Beloved loves the Rat Pack, too, so maybe I should get him tickets for Father's Day? The diner looks finer!

Ms. Goofy and I enjoyed the show so very much. We knew all the songs. It was a glimpse to a past era. Too much fun.
