Coming Up at Betty
Wednesday, February 25th
Shiny Old Soul. he music will start early (6:30 or so) with Vinny and Mikey Mac. playing until S.O.S. is ready and again on breaks. Wall to wall non-stop music.
Thursday, February 26th
Sadie and Raif Faircloth need to reschedule their performance. They drive in from rural Indiana where the roads are icy and dangerous. We’ll try again when temperatures are more spring like. With no live music
(not even vinyl) I see no point to being open.

French Axe at 7:30.
Saturday, February 28th
Burning Caravan at 7:30.
Big Easy Menu
We have chicken livers, gumbo, vegetarian Cajun rice and more in house. Chef Ricky is healthy and ready to go after his time off recovering from the seasonal crud. More details tomorrow.
Recently at Betty
I'm out all the time to take in the live music scene. Last night was the best night out in a very long time. Welcomed the minute I walked in the
door! Clean, beautiful, elegant and comfortable.
No smoking always a plus. The gourmet appetizers were supreme. Great price on the wine tasting.
And the music and poetry readings, hosted by Tim Caudill....wow.
A night spent with genuine and original people.
Civello White Blend $8 glass $32 bottle
A refreshing white bled that varies from year to year often including Pinot Grigio, Verdelho, Albarino, Vermintino, Muscato Fruliano, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay or Chenin Blanc.
A kitchen sink blend. Refreshing, crisp
and dryish. Think fried oysters.
Lucinda & Millie Chardonnay $9 glass $36 bottle
Pear, golden delicious apple and peach with a touch of spice. Minerality. Rich finish without too much oak. Pair
with pasta, especially cream based. This is delicious with the oyster stew. This is my go-to when I’m in the mood
Root 1: Carmenere $8 glass $32 bottle
A deep red color with gentle tannins and rich flavors of plum, blackberry and spice. Root: 1 Carmenere pairs well grilled portobello, Cajun spicy rice an any meat dish. The gumbo comes to mind here.
Velvet Devil Merlot $8 glass $32 bottle
I’m getting over my Merlot phobia after it was trashed long ago in the movie Sideways. The Devil has classic aromas of dark cherry, cedar, pipe tobacco (how could I not like that?), and cherry blossoms. I like it a little bit chilled. Perfect with the portobello and Cajun rice.
Where Is Betty Bar?
We're located at the corner of West 5th and Plum streets above Mainstay. Look for the side entrance on Plum and go upstairs.
