Audibles and Edibles 

Noshing at Nectar's during sound check

Nectar's is trying to get in tune with the local dining crowd. Every day of the week, during the 5-7 p.m. sound checks, patrons can chow down for cheap. For two bucks a plate, you can get a barbecued, pulled-pork sandwich; one-third rack of spice-rubbed, baby-back ribs; fried bell-pepper rings with Jamaican jerk ranch dressing; or beer-battered onion chips with roasted garlic and bell-pepper ketchup - dishes that usually run between $5 and $7.

As the menu suggests, the joint is moving in a barbecue direction. Big Fatty's envy? Staffer "Taylor," who wouldn't share his first name, claims "our barbecue is different and unique from theirs." Plus, Big Fatty's doesn't carry those hot gravy fries.
