The Rapture? What Rapture?

My apologies for the absence of blog posts lately. This weekend was a busy one! Block Island Seafood Co. hosted a fish fry at Shelley's Bar in Woodside, Queens. Folks were treated to some fish and chips, calamari, fried oysters...you name it, we fried it!

On Saturday, BISCo. had the opportunity to cater a communion party for over 80 folks. We turned out sliders, crab cakes, quesadillas, pigs in a blanket and beef satay--and that was just the appetizers. Dinner was sirloin steaks, grilled rosemary chicken, marinated grilled shrimp, parmesan pasta salad and haricot verts. Dessert for the kids was tried and true hand-scooped rainbow Italian ices. A big hit!

Luckily, the rapture didn't show its head, which was a relief. However, it was a tad eerie when the thunder and dark clouds rolled in just around 6pm. The buffet was set-up and ready to go until the rain came down. Team BISC0. was able to re-configure the party for an inside set-up and dinner was served without a hitch.

Big Brother, MSG, gettin' fired up!

Everyone had a great day and literally lived to tell about it. The best part? BISCo. left the hosts' home looking great--you wouldn't have known that appetizers and dinner were just served for 80 guests.

  1. I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I
    encounter a blog that's equally educative and entertaining,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
