So it's Sunday Funday and I wanted to get out and enjoy the brief sunshine before the downpour later. It's Musicfest, so that pretty much guarantees that it will rain. Not only rain but the bottom of the sky will open and unload upon Memphis.
Prior to this inevitable occurrence, I decided to have a staff meeting over brunch with Petey Geronimo, my soon-to-be 13 year old rat terrier.
We needed to go over the direction of the blog and also it was time for his evaluation. Petey has been in my life since he was 6 weeks old and he still hates taking pictures. This is totally not cool for a mascot, hence the meeting.
We took a trip to Rock'n Dough pizza, which surprisingly has a fantastic brunch menu. The most important thing is that their patio is PET FRIENDLY!
I like mimosas but I also like them with a bit of a twist. I go for what's known as the Man-mosa, which is your traditional champagne and OJ, but adds a shot of vodka. Trust me, it's the best thing to have for brunch.
The beignets were to die for also.
I had the Rise and Grind sandwich with I substituted sausage for bacon with cheese grits. The sandwich was great! It has a basil mayo that's very good and flavorful. The cheese grits were equally good and oh so cheesy! (No pun intended)
Petey was the star of the day. All the staff of Rock'n Dough came out and played with him or snuck him a bit of food from the kitchen. He basically solidified his mascot status today. He's lucky, he was going to get fired today! Lol.
It was a great brunch........
Then it started raining and we were both sad to leave. Until next time Rock'N Dough!!! We will definitely be back!
Rock'n Dough Pizza is located at 3445 Poplar Ave #1 and they also have a new location in Germantown that just recently opened. You can check their menu out at www.rockndoughpizza.com
