Later this month I'm hosting a dinner party themed "Nicki's Bar & Grill," featuring cocktails and bar food. I'm even printing up a menu.

Way up on the list of potential menu items is this little tidbit from Jim 'N Nick's in Birgmingham. Friend-o-Bites Betheats and I sampled them on a road trip to a blogger forum, and we were both wowed by the combination of pimento cheese and smoked sausage. (It's available on the Jim 'N Nick's catering menu, by the way.) Health food it ain't, but like all bar food, it's straightforwardly delicious.

For other bar food favorites, I'm considering homemade chicken fingers or hot wings, and maybe celery sticks with homemade blue cheese dressing. A couple more would round out the menu — insofar as a menu of bar food can be well-rounded — but only fried pickles and fried mushrooms have occurred to me, and we have enough fried food.

Help a hostess out with your favorite bar food suggestions, please.
