About ShoutOUT

In 2009, I started sharing my experiences, food, travels, and events, along with all of the incredible people and businesses I was meeting and discovering. What began as a fun hobby had such an overwhelming response, ShoutOUT was born! I continue to stretch the boundaries locally, regionally, and nationally, discovering, sharing and connecting as I go.

Nothing Standard Here

Appetizers

he poutine was a bevy of sidewinder fries (not the traditional straight cut fries), crispy outside/soft inside, and dotted with Cigar City beer-marinated cheese curds then bathed in a savory rich, beefy gravy. A delightfully lighter version of the traditional fare but no less satisfying.
