B-SIDE: Kingfisher Bar and Grill, 2564 E. Grant Road. Our birdwatcher friends know that a kingfisher in Australia is a kookaburra. If you find yourself hungry after 9 p.m. you can find your merry merry way over to Kingfisher Bar and Grill. Start off with a cocktail prepared by some of the best bartenders in town. They are well known for their martinis, but a well-prepared sidecar or cosmopolitan would certainly make your life a bit more gay as you choose an appetizer from the famed oyster selections. After you've polished off your dozen you should order Kingfisher's all-time favorite, grilled baby back pork ribs. If the night leaves you feeling a bit guilty, a spoon salad with marinated chicken, casera cheese, vegetables and beans is a healthful choice. Our friend the kookaburra would probably laugh the night away with the soft-shell crab sandwich.
