ESPN Wide World of Sports & Wide World of Sports Grill

My oldest daughter Miranda was participating in the USSSA Softball Tournament that's taking place over at ESPN Wide World of Sports this week. I was looking forward to this tournament since I had never been to the ESPN sporting complex.

I couldn't believe the size of Wide World of Sports. I made use of the $16 admission and wandered around taking in all of the sights.

The Gnarly Barley Bites & Brews

I have some friends who have been enjoying eating and drinking at The Gnarly Barley for a while, so I thought it was about time to finally check out this local hot spot.

Bryan and I made a visit to the Florida Mall and since I'm not a fan of the dining scene over there we took a five-minute drive over to S. Orange Ave and made our way to the Gnarly Barely.

This local eatery is a bit small and while the seating is limited inside, outside you will find about a dozen tables. 

I always appreciate when you can find a restaurant with a great selection of craft beers.

There are a number of tasty options on the menu. We decided to split the Johnny Mac and Cheese sandwich with a side of Potato Salad.

This roast beef sandwich topped with mac and cheese was delicious as was the salad. 

The next time I stopped by the Gnarly Barley I was with my Orlando Lady Crafters. This time, I was torn between getting what I enjoyed last time or trying something new. I went with a half of the Great Grilled Cheese and a side of Tomato Soup. It was the perfect combo for a rainy night.

While the food at the Gnarly Barley is worth the draw alone, the craft beer selection makes it an even sweeter spot. Check out their Facebook Page to keep up with Tap Takeovers and nightly specials.
