Get Together at Dudley’s

Posted on November 4, 2020 by under Food and Drink.    

We wanted to get together with friends (who mostly live on the West side of town) last month so we originally planned for dinner at Kobe. Unfortunately, Kobe was being super strict with their numbers and (1) wouldn’t take reservations for groups bigger than 8 people and (2) wouldn’t guarantee that our group could stay together. We ended up relocating our dinner to Dudley’s, mainly to stay out West and also because Dudley’s had no problem accommodating our group of 20.

We had a few people who couldn’t make it and actually contemplated relocating back to Kobe next door, but we still had way too many people to be able to ensure that our group stayed together.

Some people in our group had been to Dudley’s before but, being East-siders, neither Brian nor I had ever been so we really didn’t know what to expect. The place was super relaxed and gave no fucks whatsoever about the pandemic. When we walked in wearing masks and found noone there wearing them, our server was like “We don’t care about that (meaning the masks) here,” and pretty much gave us the green light to take our face coverings off. No wonder they didn’t care about having large groups either. It was like we had stepped back in time to 2019 before the Coronavirus was a thing.

The food was just your basic bar food but I took pictures anyway because it’s kind of my thing. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t.

I ordered the fish and chips because the server told us about this lady at the next table who drives all the way to Dudley’s from two towns over just to have their fish and chips. Anyway, it was just okay. Cory, who also ordered the fish and chips, and I both concluded that the lady at the next table had never had good fish and chips before. Of course, the Pub Orlando completely ruined me because it is the standard by which I compare all fish and chips to and it is completely unfair because Kansas fish and chips will never be able to measure up to the fish and chips you can get in Florida. To be fair, though, I’ve had some decent fish and chips in Wichita – better than the one I had that night at Dudley’s.

While the food may have been mediocre, the company was second to none. It was great to physically get back together with our friends after months of seclusion and “virtual” gatherings. I had no idea how much I missed getting hugs.

It’s always fun hanging out with these guys. I can’t wait until our next real life gathering! Until then, GNG.
