I am sure some of y’all are still pinching yourselves from last weekend’s triumph in Tuscaloosa. Who would have imagined we could have been victorious back to back and end the drought of ‘88 to win in Tuscaloosa?
Well, now we get to end September on top and open home conference play at 3-0 back in Oxford this weekend. What I have loved about this season is we have so many new places opening open that we have a chance to explore more great cuisine around Oxford. Not that I don’t love the classic places we all love– it’s nice to give the rookies a chance to make their mark here in Oxford.
If you are looking for a true rookie in town we have found one this week on our stop for Taste of the Game. This place literally just opened this past week so it will be the perfect place to try something brand new to Oxford and The Square while the Rebels take on Vandy at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
With an evening game this weekend you will have a few options to indulge in lunch, dinner or brunch. Are You Ready? I know I have been ready to finally enjoy some of the delectable offerings that Bacchus on The Square has to offer its patrons.
What I think people patrons will enjoy most is that it has literally opened this week so it will be something new and different for fans to enjoy on game day or game weekend activities. I think patrons will enjoy is its signature seafood menu which is something I know we don’t always get to enjoy full on unless we are closer to the coast.
You can’t go wrong with even a starter on this menu and that says a lot about a new place in town. If you’re looking for something quick before kick off before the game, the starter menu is great especially the cajun starters. I say go for either the salmon nachos or cajun wrappers but if you can’t decide then why not have both. If not then you must choose one of their awesome oysters selections from Raw to Rockefeller. Oysters are something we don’t get to enjoy enough around Oxford but now y’all can indulge.
If you have a little more time to enjoy an entree for lunch or dinner, then you will be in heaven with the options to devour. I tend to like things with a little cajun kick so I recommend to go with the Cajun Marinated Ribeye for a filling choice.
If you’re looking for something classic or with a bit of a twist then I have to head straight to PoBoy selections on the menu. Either go with their traditional New Orleans Style PoBoy or their Famous Sushi PoBoy.
So let the rookie in town get a chance to get a play in with y’all this weekend as the Rebels take on the Commodores at home. Hotty Toddy Y’all!
