Sunday Bartending.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 2:55 pm

Today, it is my turn to tend bar at the Post, and, as always, the bartender is responsible for the food. Today’s fare will be chili con carne and rice, with the following available to taste: shredded cheddar, chopped onions, sour cream, hot sauce, black olives, cornbread and tortilla chips. Dessert will be chocolate covered donuts. It all goes well with cold beer (except maybe the donuts) and good friends.

Speaking of the Post Bar, that is where the Jersey Blogmeet (click the button on the left) will be held. It will not be held in the “hall,” but rather in a real bar. However, unlike holding the thing in a place like Bennigan’s or TGIF, the Bar will be open only to Blogmeet attendees, and also unlike those other places, the bar will be “open.” Food will be catered. Check it out.



  1. Only because you mentioned it . . .

    What is chili con carne? Chili with meat, yes? Now I ask you, if you removed the carne/meat, are you left with chili? If yes, then is chili kidney beans, chili powder, onions, and some spices?

    Just one of those questions I have never fully had answered.

  2. I believe that the chili purists would say that you don’t even need kidney beans, as chili with kidney beans is chili con frijoles (pardon my non-Spanish).

  3. Jim, I would love to come to your blog meet, it has been a long time, since I have been to Jersey. I can’t leave my house in a mess, like it is now. More boxes each day, I may get settled by April, take care, Cat.

  6. Wow! Sounds like a real blast!!

    Glad you clarified “The Post” from the “Post Bar”, big difference. I was envisioning sitting around in a place that looked like a bingo hall…….LOL

  7. oh…..and wondering what chili con carne is too since I’ve seen it at mexican restaurants I always assumed it was some sort of tortilla with chili on it or something. Did you calrify that already and it just went over my head?

  9. Unfortunately, I don’t live in New Joisey. If I did, I would delight in sharing that chili dinner. Although I noticed sliced mild jalepeno peppers are not included as a garnish.

    A “chili” dish is made with pureed flame-roasted chile peppers. As a minimum, folk add some bulk, usually kidney beans or small white beans. Real he-men do not put in the “carne” but char-broil a steak to go with it. But for a veggie version suitable for summer see the Pantry Page at http://www.ivyhill.tv I realize this is a catered event, but if you make the cornbread yourself, throw in a can of Mexican corn into the batter. Adds interest.

    Beautiful website. I really like the theme.
