Bern's Steakhouse?

I'll be working in Tampa for about 3 weeks in March, and plan on eating at Bern's as often as possible, cholesterol be dammed.
I even ordered the wine list and have gone through it with a hi-liter.
I'm a musician who loves baseball, wine (especially older CA bottles), politics (I'm a confirmed lefty, but get along just fine with anyone, with the possible exception of Ted Nugent- whom I've met and is clinically insane, and Rush Limbaugh- whom I made cry, accidentally, sorry Rush).
I'll be down working on a musical called Rock Of Ages (don't blame me for the Tom Cruise debacle) and welcome any dinner company.
ps: I promise I'm not actually a weirdo/creep; a little boring possibly, but not too creepy I hope.

I sure wish that I could join you, but I'm 2,200 miles away. I have a dream of hitting Bern's at least once in my lifetime. Their aged Beaujolais look wonderful and affordable. If your tour takes you back up to the Mpls. area again, look us up and the locals will take you out.

Mighty kind offer Tpety, and I'll take you up on it some day!
I'm actually the music supervisor for the show, so I go around teaching the cast their parts, the band how to play it etc...
We're opening on a NCL ship in May, so I'm rehearsing the cast in Tampa, then flying to Germany to tech the show on board the ship.

Bern's is a pretty surreal experience, especially touring the cellars.
Where else can you get an 1850 Madeira by the glass for $50? Smile

Might be able to get together with you.

ER physician living in Seminole just across the Bay. Haven't been to Bern's in years (two small kids at home and I'm 48 what was I thinking!).

I walked away from baseball after third strike, try to keep my politics to work--follow the national scene but don't get too zealous about it---even watch Daily Show for a humorous look from the "other side". Like big fresh cabernets, also Italian super Tuscans. Should be PERFECT dinner company for you!!

I am the coordinator for a local wine club, The Grape Nuts, so might be able to wrestle up another winelover if need be to join us.

Email: ardeisfka@aol.com

Probably better luck on a weeknight rather than a weekend with my schedule.

Regards either way,

Ardeis Scott

1972 was a great, underappreciated vintage in Burgundy. I think it was better than 1971 and 1976


Just one more sip.

totally agree. My wife's birth year, and I've had quite a few that have been fantastic.
