Bone Daddy’s Barbecues The Breastaurant

DSC06216By Steven Doyle

When Mike Leatherwood opened his first Bone Daddy’s House of Smoke in Dallas he wasn’t looking at operating a breastaurant, but somehow along the way he was lumped into that category. He had an all female waitstaff wearing skimpy clothing, so technically that would throw him into the company of Hooters. Interesting enough, the gimmick was to be temporary while he perfected the Addison-based business. More recently Leatherwood re-engineered the uniforms to be more tailored and less revealing. What is left is some really good barbecue, hand-made the old fashioned way.

On a recent visit we learned that training was supreme importance for Leatherwood, and has a two day program where he empowers employees through his personal life coach. It is this treatment that nets a amiable employee and extremely low turn over.

Then there is the barbecue.       Continue reading

Taste A Beer Flavored Jelly Belly

blly beerby Steven Doyle

What is gluten free, fat free, vegetarian friendly, kosher, peanut free and non-alcoholic but tastes like a draft beer? The latest Jelly Belly flavor. The company unveiled the new flavor at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco recently, and claim it “tastes like your favorite draft beer”. I am so pleased that the new flavor tastes like Peticolas Velvet Hammer, but how did they know?

Anyway, you can purchase online for now at their website. Cost is $8.99 a pound (currently on sale for less) and you get about 400 beans to a bag. That is about what the cost of a really good craft beer would set you back locally. Consider this gateway booze. You know, for kids.
