Lah di dee Lah di dah-Caribbean Tuesdays at Bears

Any day is a good day to visit the gang at Bears on Fairfield but Tuesdays are especially good.

Not only is it $2 Tuesday with wells, wines and assorted beer, it is also Caribbean Tuesdays with the infamous Gordon Nurse cooking traditional island food and playing some island jams.


If you’ve never met Gordon, you are indeed missing a treat. Character doesn’t even begin to describe him. You know how we all have that one family member that we love dearly, but at times, they make us walk away mid-sentence? That is Gordon! You will laugh, shake your head and walk away all at the same time.

In addition to keeping you entertained from just general conversation, Gordon whips up some mean dishes in Bears’ kitchen.

For Caribbean Tuesday, Gordon normally has jerk chicken, jerk fried catfish, jerk ribs, curry vegetables, beans, rice and hot pepper sauce if that’s your thing. As you can see from my numerous plates, I’m a fan of the jerk fried catfish but all of it is really delicious.

After Gordon has made sure everyone has a plate, he along with some other local musicians take to the stage to jam out with some Caribbean music.

Basically, if you’re looking for some good drinks, good food and good music on a Tuesday night, Bears on Fairfield is where you need to be. A little birdie also told me that if you tell Gordon that I sent you, he will have something special for you! Bar opens at 4, food starts at 6.

See you tonight!

    I’ve never had Jerk Catfish. That sounds quite interesting and troubling at the same time, seeing as i love my ‘traditional’ catfish. Im gonna have to give it a try.
