This past week over 100 elites descended into the smoky, hickory-scented lair of Lou Dawg's Southern Sandwiches on King Street West, where they mixed and mingled while juggling sliders and vodka slides. We overheard many an "ooh" and "ahh" as yelpers sunk their teeth into meaty options like fork-tender pulled pork & chicken sandwiches, smoked beef brisket and juicy fillet of sole. Fry baskets (yukon gold and sweet potato!) made the rounds but didn't last long thanks to their pairing with tangy chipotle mayo that had everybody raving! As if the main attractions weren't enough, black bean and corn salad, baked beans, southern 'slaw and cheddar jalapeno muffins also made the rounds.
While yelpers noshed, local musician Paige Armstrong strummed through a setlist of favourites, including tunes by Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Eric Clapton and even Kings Of Leon! Daniel B raves: "These amazing angels came out from behind the doors holding majestic
plates of delicious shredded BBQ'd pork on buns. I have no idea what
the 'pulled' in 'pulled pork' refers to, but I can only assume that it
means that it was pulled from heaven."
Check out all the beautiful photos taken by our own Wendy Heisler on Flickr, and see what other people are saying about the party in the reviews and Talk thread – if you weren't there you really missed out!
A very special thank you to Daryl D'Souza, Trevor Brodie, Sean Smith and the staff at Lou Dawg's for being such formidable hosts!
See You On Yelp!
