Tomorrow: Giants Opening Day Tailgate with Gator's Back Porch BBQ
Glenn "Gator" Thompson, chef/owner of the now-defunct Dollie Marie's restaurant in San Mateo, will bring his Gator's Back Porch BBQ to San Francisco tomorrow for a Giants opening day tailgate party with live music and menu featuring "apple-smoked sticky fingers baby back ribs" and Bloody Marys beginning at the crack of dawn (okay, 8:30 a.m.).
Gator Thompson This is our idea of a home run.
It should be a good and possibly rare opportunity to sample Thompson's cooking without a good little drive. Via Chowhound, we learn that Thompson recently told writer GraceAnn Walden he's taking over executive chef duties at San Jose restaurant Agenda Lounge.
"I will be bringing my healthy, Southern style to the South Bay without the headache of being the owner," he told Walden.
Did someone say baseball? We're thinking barbecue.
