Cactus Club - reno'ed

Headed to the renovated Cactus Club by my place with a co-worker to go over some documents I've been working on. The idea was that I would buy dinner and he would help me edit. We just grabbed a seat at the bar, facing one of their many gigantic TVs. Something with plenty of room for me to spread out all my papers.
We had ordered while we were working, so it was good timing that the food arrived as we were finishing up. He ordered the BBQ Duck Clubhouse, but the name is quite misleading. It's actually made with  bbq duck, pan seared chicken and crisp prosciutto sandwiched between two slices of pecan fruit bread, served with a side salad.
Can you see the chunks of duck and chicken there? Plus the lettuce and bacon and a bit of mayo. It looks amazing, doesn't it? I think I'll have to try this on my next visit. But I don't like pecan fruit bread...wonder if they will make it with regular panini bread or sourdough bread? If you're reading, Cactus Club, let me know?
I got my usual...Chicken Wings, along with some nicely stacked celery and blue cheese dip. The wings aren't sauced, just the way I like them. I order them just flash fried, with some salt and pepper. Oh, and yes, you are right, all the wings are wings...not a drummette in sight!
TIP: If you are like me, and prefer either wings or drummettes, the secret to get what you want is not to ask for "mostly" wings...just ask for ALL wings...makes it easier for the kitchen to give you want you want.

    The pecan fruit slices look like theyre from the precan fruit loaves from Terra Breads-- in which case the bread would be sourdough.

    I work at Cactus...not terra breads and it's not sourdough. We will make the sandwich on any bread that we have, we do have sour dough:) Hope this helps. And for future reference, we will do anything that we can do and will make anything that we can make with what we have in the kitchen. So never be shy about asking for whatever you want.
