30th on 30th Goes Yacht Rock

From the Linkery & El Take It Easy:

Steph and I took the morning off from our usual duties and went to appear on the CW6, along with Matt from Urban Solace and Jason and Jonathan from Cafe 21. We were promoting this Thursday's 30th on 30th event.

Max and Ana made samples of our 30th on 30th fare -- grass-fed roast beef sandwhiches for the Linkery, and pork belly tacos for El Take It Easy. Meanwhile Steph and I stood around and watched.

When we got there, we were in their outdoor studio, where one wall was made to look like we were in a marina, and the backdrop was like a tract home from 1983.

Matt looked really great there!

The food that both Cafe 21 and Urban Solace brought looked great too.

But most of all, what rocked were the yachts.

We had fun, and we heard the segment came out pretty well. See you on the 30th!

Arthur Guinness Day, Saturday Tasting Series with Kermit Lynch Wines and John Cusack provides insight into why Jaynes takes a pass on Restaurant Week

We continue our Saturday Tasting series tomorrow Saturday, September 25th with our good friend Kate MacWilliamson from Kermit Lynch Wines. Kate will be pouring the 2006 Extegaraya Cuvee Lehengoa Irouleguy, 2008 Guy Breton Morgon Beaujolais and another surprise bottle. Please join us for what will certainly be a highlight of the series. 3 top shelf French selections for $10 from 5-6pm.

Tonight Friday the 24th we celebrate Arthur Guinness Day. Come celebrate Mr G.'s brithday with a creamy 20oz imperial pint for just $3

Our special this weekend is Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, wild mushrooms and a tarragon butter.

Jaynes does not participate in Restaurant Week. Think of us as your oasis at the top of 30th Street. A guest recently asked us why. I feel the answer can best be summed up by this clip featuring Mr. John Cusack in the 1989 Cameron Crowe directed romantic comedy Say Anything.
