AHH! I feel terrible! I'm oh so sorry I havent updated recently! School started last week, and I've been kind of frazzled!!! Hopefully I can get back on track this week!

Anyways, back to THE GREEN BEETLE!! We've had some great publicity since the last time I was on here! Including our ads in the Memphis Flyer!!! :) Plus, we had a band in here last weekend that I heard was pretty awesome!!  

As you know, there have been some great desserts flying in and out of the Green Beetle! Including chocolate caramel cake, cookie dough cake, banana pudding cupcakes, carrot cake, and peanut butter cupcakes!!!!

 Our facebook page is updated more often than this, so check that when you need some more info!!!

Hey yall!! So our second week was pretty good!! We sold tons of our Cajun Meatloaf, Beetle burgers, and Lasagna!! :)  And Big Frank was taken down quite a few times as well!!

Our first Hell's Kitchen Watch Party went pretty well! I'd say it was a great turnout!!  Monday at 7pm we'll have Johnathon's specialty dish, Punch Drunk Chicken! Come on by if you want to watch Memphis's own Johnathon Plumley hold his own against Chef Ramsy!!! We'd love to have you!

Now, I know most of yall may come in for dinner or just a beer on your way to somewhere else which is totally awesome BUT did you know we have  lunch?? Yes sir! You can come by for lunch!! We have plate lunches with southern style fried okra and turnip greens. You can also get a homemade family recipe original dessert as well made by Kristeanna, grandaughter of Frank Liberto!!

Speaking of desserts, you are gonna die when I tell you what we are having for dessert this week!! **drum roll** TRUE southern original Red Velvet Cake!! NO cream cheese icing!! This is the real deal! But that's not all, we will also be having Banana Pudding Cupcakes!!! Yup, you read that right! Banana Pudding Cupcakes!!  Look, there's so cute!

These are top secret recipe cupcakes, so you know they've got to be awesome!!
