 Blues City Deli grand opening with Brian Curran
BCD Muffuleta
Brian Curran

Blues City DeliThe Blues City Deli is at the corner of Victor and McNair in historic Benton Park. When walking in to the little south side deli I was instantly greeted by Vince, who was proudly guarding the counter. Blues music was playing and blues greats adorned the interior brick wall.

I had the “Valenza Special” Muffuletta. The players on this massive 8” sandwich are: Genoa Salami - Ham - Mortadella - Mozzarella
Homemade Olive Salad – all on Italian bread. To chase it down I enjoyed a chilled bottle, yes bottle of grape soda. Folks from the hood distant and far came out. The weather was great, and the eats, well I’ll be back!

Saturday, November 6, 2004 was the grand opening and grand it was. Brian Curran sat out front with his dobro guitar entertaining the patrons and neighbors walking by. Brian played a lot, some slide, and sang a bit. No microphones, no amps, just Brian, his guitar and a breeze – a terrific combination for a beautiful fall Saturday afternoon. I was sitting there thinking what a great day it was, then it got better. I was given a chocolate, chocolate chip cookie, mmm good. As far as Brian, he sounded great - better live than his CD’s. Be sure to catch him playing around town. I was amazed at the sound his dobro was putting out, I was also amazed with the music, it did not sound like a one-man band.

Jeremy Segel-Moss and Kari Liston of the Bottoms Up Blues Gang were among the crowd taking in the tunes and enjoying the eats. The Blues City Deli gets a 5 on the old STLBluesometer. Visit often, tell them Cornbread sent you.

Ciao’ for now, peace.
