Chicken N Pickle

Posted on February 25, 2019 by under Food and Drink, Things to Do.    

In case you didn’t know, Chicken N Pickle is officially open. Brian and I have been there a few times already. We were there for the lunch and learn event on Martin Luther King Day, during their soft open, for the Ditch the Date Valentines Day event, and again on Sunday morning for some pickleball. I’ve also been out there with Uncle Roy and his group for pickleball on a couple of Tuesdays.

Here are some pictures we got on our very first visit.

The indoor courts were ready but that was pretty much it.

They had a few food items you could buy for lunch but the main restaurant wasn’t open yet so the food selection was limited. It didn’t bother me too much, though. I was there to play pickleball mostly.

Brian and I were both off work that day for the Martin Luther King holiday so he took me to play pickleball at West YMCA first, where they play on Monday mornings starting at 9 AM. Then we went to Jay and Becca’s travel agency office to book our Costa Rica trip, since we were just down the street. After that we took my car to the dealership to get washed.

It was warm enough for the carwash to be running but, we found out the hard way, that it was actually still very cold. Chicken N Pickle is just down the street from the dealership so I talked Brian into walking over there for the lunch and learn while we were waiting for my car to be ready. I think Brian was cursing me under his breath the entire walk over. Anyway, despite the proximity, we ended up taking a Lyft car back to the dealership afterwards because neither of us wanted to deal with that cold wind again.

My next visit out there was for pickleball with Uncle Roy’s group. It worked out because we needed to pick up a TV mount at Best Buy so I went over there to play and then Brian took a Lyft ride over after taking care of our girls. Then we just went to Best Buy before heading home after pickleball.

I’m glad we went because Roy and Bonnie’s daughter Maddy who is an event coordinator at CNP was there and she told me about the soft open (read: free food).

Alex and I met up with Brian for lunch there the next day and had the opportunity to try several menu items.

I’m not sure what it is about free food but it’s always so tasty. Kidding aside, everything was truly very good.

We enjoyed everything we ate. In case you are wondering what all these are, here’s the menu card that we drew:

Here’s a picture of the vast dining room.

It is the perfect place for a party because they have so much space.

The following Tuesday, I was back again for pickleball with Roy’s crew. I took a picture of the card they had showing all of the upcoming events.

Then Brian and I were back again for “Ditch the Date” on Valentines Day. For $25 per person you got free food, two free drinks, and free pickleball from 6 PM to 9 PM. It was a pretty good deal!

Here’s a picture of us with Maddy.

When we arrived, we ran into one of the ladies who goes to my Zumba class (Diana Miller) and her husband. The four of us ended up hanging out for most of the evening on an accidental double date of sorts.

Here are some pictures of the beautiful exterior grounds, which are a far cry from the state they were in just a couple of weeks prior.

Another one of the Millers.

I also ran into some folks that we play pickleball with at the church that night. These are Debbie and Tiffany.

And, yes, Brian and I were nerds who wore matching outfits from head to toe.

It was such a fun night. Overall, I’m really pleased with CNP. I think it’s my new favorite place now. How can you go wrong with drinking and pickleball?

Brian and I like it so much that we actually went on location and did our Sunday morning FLIP + CHING video live from there.

If you haven’t tried CNP yet, I highly recommend it.
