Travel Tips for Tallahassee

We made a one-day excursion to...

by Cestovatelka

We made a one-day excursion to the capital of Florida, but it actually was not worth it. If you intend to go there, just because you believe you should have been in Thallahassee don't do it. It's a lost day, there so many places much better than this in Florida

Springtime still means FOOTBALL in Tallahassee

by pchamlis

As stated in other Tallahassee sports tips, FOOTBALL (American football, not soccer) is king in Tallahassee. The basic season runs from late August until early January. But, in the springtime, the local college teams have their spring practice. At the end of the two week practice sessions, they stage was is called an intra-squad game, namely they play against each other. It's really just another practice, but they open it to the public and let everyone watch for free. When the weather is nice, it's a glorious afternoon soaking up some sun and watching some football.

Generally, they'll call the game by the schools' colors. Florida State University's colors are garnet and gold, so the spring game is the Garnet and Gold game.

I suspect that spring football practice isn't treated with this type of reverance anywhere outside of the deep south. But like I say, it's our religion... and one must live one's religion. : )

Go Seminoles! (Even when you're playing against each other in practice)

by pchamlis about Ray's Steel City Saloon

One of the best new "lower end" (pricewise) options in Tallahassee is Ray's Steel City Saloon. Conveniently located on the northside of Tallahassee, Ray's features specialties from Ray's hometown of Pittsburgh, PA aka the "Steel City". In addition the saloon includes many Florida favorites on its extensive and tasty menu. And of course, it IS a saloon, so.... the 100+ beers on menu are a definite plus.

We went to Ray's the other night to celebrate another visit to Tallahassee by Doug48, one of the nicest guys on VT. Doug joined me, my wife and daughter for an early evening knosh at Ray's (OUR first visit) and we were not disappointed. One reason that we'd chosen Ray's was that our friend Doug truly LOVES a good beer.

The service was great, the atmosphere relaxed, and the prices more than reasonable. It is my understanding that Ray's has developed quite a following, so if you're going on a Friday or Saturday, you might want to get there early... or earlier.

OK, since VT now lets us have 10K characters, why don't I give you a look at Ray's beer menu? This should wet your whistle the next time you're in Tallahassee.

First, there are the "usual" brands.... Bud and Bud Light, Miller and Miller Lite, Yuengling, Coors and Coors Light. Other great US brands available are

Iron City (a Pittsburgh native, and the beer that I enjoyed most the other night)
Rolling Rock (another Pennsylvania native)
Sam Adams
Sierra Nevada
Sierra Nevada Bigfoot
Killians Red
Land Shark (a pitiful brew IMHO)
Butte Creek Organic Pilsner
Abita Turbo Dog
Blue Moon
Old Thumper
Purple Haze
Sweaty Betty Blond
Sweetwater Blue
Sweetwater 420
Harpoon IPA and UFO
Woodchuck Granny Smith Cider

Want to go beyond the USA, check these out...

Amstel Light
Becks Dark and Light
Corona and Corona Light
Dos Equis
Franziskaner Hefeweizen (always a good choice)
Lenenkugels Honey Weiss and Sunset Wheat
Negra Modelo
Paulaner Lager
Pilsner Urquelle (what Doug48 had, getting ready for his trip to Prague)
Red Stripe (if you're into Jamaican shhhhhhhht, mon)
Stella Artois (one of my favorites)

If you want to spend more money, you can look over Ray's extensive premiums and micros list. My recommendation would be Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout, or maybe Dogfish Head Aprihop. Another wild and devilish choice would be Satan Red. It's all good. The other night, I had Ray's conch fritters (they called them Konk), which are a south Florida and Caribbean classic dish. Ray's were very nicely spicy, with an extra dose of habaneros in the fritter batter. Spicy dipping sauce made a very nice start for my meal.

I then did Ray's Pittsburgh style fried codfish sandwich, truly outstanding. Beer battered north Atlantic cod on a great roll with all the fixings.

Doug48 had a simple, but quite large cheeseburger, cooked to his specific order.

My wife and daughter samples Ray's salads and soups, and pronounced everything top-notch.

Looking over the menu, you might want to try the pierogies, a Pittsburgh appetizer specialty. (little homemade raviolis, stuffed with cheese and potatoes, pan fried in butter and onions, served with a side of sour cream. Both a Pittsburgh favorite and an Eastern European staple).

Another Pittsburgh favorite on the menu is Ray's "Jacked-Up Meatloaf". It's stuffed with garlic mashed potatoes and cheddar cheese, served over Texas toast and topped with Ray's homemade bourbon gravy. Sounds good, but not for the light eater, I'm told.

Vegetarians? Sure, they'll find good eatin' at Rays. Check out the "Uva" (supposedly pronounced as ooooovah) It's a sandwich stuffed with fresh mozarella, sliced tomatoes, flame roasted piquillo peppers, guacamole and pesto oil on freshly backed ciambatta bread. It's served warm and pressed. (which is good for both sandwiches AND dry cleaning!)

Other good veggies dishes include spicy black bean soup and Ray's vegetarian chili. (The menu says that you won't believe how good it is) Guess I'll not find out, I am a meat eater. :)
