Last Thursday it was my younger brother Patrick's birthday and it just so happened that Nigel was taking the Sneaky Cheats team out to cater an event to launch a new beer at the new Copper Bottom Brewery that just opened in Montague. The brewery is located on top of a hill overlooking Montague River which is located in the south eastern end of Prince Edward Island. I spent a lot of time as a kid growing up in Montague because my mothers side of my family is from there. I haven't been there in years though and it was great to be back even if it was only for a few hours. We had some great food and great laughs accompanied by live music and unlimited beer flowing. If you're ever in that neck of the woods, I highly suggest checking out Copper Bottom.
It's been awhile since i've made a blog update. As always, I was fortunate enough to take in another smoke out BBQ with my buds here in Charlottetown last sunday. Sneaky Cheats PEI is a craft catering service my good friend Nigel Thompson just started here on PEI. We convinced him to get the guys together for our buddy Skye's birthday and have a lazy Sunday BBQ with the Sneaky Cheats smoker. I've been vegetarian since the first of July (never thought I'd see the day), but sadly I have to admit I caved super early and tasted a lot of these smoked treats Nigel and the guys cooked up. It was well worth it to say the least! haha
We smoked fresh salmon with a lemon, brown sugar and herb rub which was probably the star dish of the day. There were smoked back ribs, smoked bologna sandwiches, some great kale salad, geese, and oh I almost forgot, there was a smoked brie wheel melted over top of some incredible smoked beef. Below are some images from throughout our day. Cheers!
Back here today with another beach blog post, I have no idea whether you're sick of them or can't get enough of PEI beaches! We had a blast with some good friends of ours Dante Leon and Grace Stavert - they've both appeared on the blog before. We knew they were coming down to the Island so we all decided to hit the beach on this warm summer afternoon. The good drinks, good weed and good vibes were flowing. Unfortunately, I realized I only had less than 10% camera battery remaining when we got to the beach, so we quickly plugged it in the car charger and were able to recharge on the way to Richard's, which totally saved us. I've learned in the past few weeks to carry my camera everywhere I go; I make sure I don't miss a moment and in turn, I get some crazy memories & feels while looking at those images. I feel like I'm going back to the source to when I used to document my friends growing up! Dante played us some unreleased music all afternoon and we couldn't help but be so impressed at his talent. Stay tuned for his work coming out soon!
Richard's Fresh Seafood and Lobster down at the Covehead Wharf is one of the best spots on PEI to grab a mouth watering Lobster Roll or a round of Fish n Chips while soaking in the incredible view. It's for sure the best way to end a beach day while the sun is setting if you're in that area.
