On Thursday, we headed to Pier 22 (formerly Mattison’s Riverside) to celebrate its name change with Executive Chef Greg Campbell. 

As we arrived at the Twin Dolphins Marina, we wondered whether we’d be chased inside by the rain as ominous clouds loomed overhead . . .

We lucked out . . . drinks flowed faster than rain drops as servers swirled around the patio greeting guests with: Pomegranate Mojitos, Cactus Juice Margaritas, Huckleberry Lemonade, Wine, Sangria, and Lagers.

To complement the drinks, Pier 22 tantalized our taste buds with delicious offerings:  Honey Glazed Shrimp Tempura, Crab Cakes with Creole Remoulade, Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili Sauce, Monte Cristos with Strawberry Coulis, Asparagus with Proscuitto, and Lobster Bisque with . . . Lobster! 

Kettle of Fish kept patio patrons plied with jazzy standards and sultry sounds until the evening ended on a sweet note . . . carrot cake.

No rules.  Just write!

We are in the middle photo . . . if you excel at “Where’s Waldo?” maybe you can find us!
