birthday party bbq

We attended a 40th birthday party at Smoke N Spice in Windsor, Ontario. Our party of 10, sat on the balcony and enjoyed a special menu designed by Chef Ryan Odette and his wonderful wife Tina.

Appetizers: Beef Brisket, caramelized onion & blue cheese pizza (see below), Grilled vegetable and tomato pizza

Salad: Salad of mixed greens, goat cheese & spiced pecans Entree: Jerked chicken with slaw and grilled sweet potatoes
Alternating desserts: Red velvet torte, Sweet potato cheesecake (see below), Chocolate pecan pie

Even the drinks were fun! Smoke N Spice has an awesome selection of Ontario craft beers. I stuck with Oakville's Cameron’s Cream Ale which I continue to love more and more. It's malty but not overpowering and has a very smooth, tasty finish.

Toward the end of the meal, people got nostalgic and starting drinking Pop Shoppe pop. I don’t know too much about it but apparently there was a Pop Shoppe store in Windsor that was very popular. Smoke N Spice carries the black cherry, root beer, cream soda, and orange flavours. Between the Pop Shoppe and dessert, I’m sure everyone went home with a sugar high! Happy birthday David! And, thanks to Sharon for hosting a great event!
