The Gumbo

The Gumbo

Whirlwind!  Just call me Hurricane Bill.  I’m comin’  to get ya. Here’s where.

Whoa! I gotta slow down a little bit. “I been hittin the road way too hard.  Gotta get back to my back yard”  So the the song goes.

Coming up on the new CD.  Right smack dab in the middle of all this gallavanting around the place, we have begun work on our 10th… 11th …12th (who’s counting) album.  This one promises to be super funky, with a hint of zydeco, and slathered with Sauce Boss originality   Soon come.

Check out the “She’s a Monkey” live Sauce Boss video from Panama City’s Mardi Gras.  Along with lots of other videos of the antics of the Food Dude.

We miss you, Betty Teague.  Betty was one of our favorite gumbo heads and a big supporter of Planet Gumbo.  In fact she designated Planet Gumbo as a charity for her friends and family to acknowledge her recent passing.  She and her daughter Elizabeth came to more Sauce Boss shows than I can count and they were always a big part of the party.  Betty had a great life and we were proud to be a part of it.  Party on Betty. 

Planet Gumbo is now a cause on Facebook.  Join the crowd and spread the word to all of your friends.  To go to Planet Gumbo cause page on Facebook click here.  And if you haven’t found the Sauce Boss page itself on Facebook yet, it’s at http://facebook.com/BillSauceBossWharton

Not Exactly Breakfast at Tiffiny's But Tasty Just The Same

Not Exactly Brunch at Brennan's, But Tasty All the Same

Breakfast till close (2 pm) for $2.99.  If you’re coming through Carrabelle after a late night on the island, the BP station is a good bet for breakfast.  They also serve fried chicken, shrimp, grouper, wings, sandwiches, and daily specials. The specials are written on the little board next to the fishing poles and crab nets.  The day I stopped in, the special was country fried steak, with mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and roll for $7.25. There’s a few down home flourishes like homemade pepper sauce on the tables and real butter with breakfast.  Add gravy to any meal for fifty cents. And… you can take home a full pint for a buck seventy-five.  Boggles the mind.
