trestle-inn-bar

Trestle Inn is about to make your summer Wednesday nights out a lot cheaper.

Its Spirit of Wednesday tasting program (which normally features $5 spirits) is switching it up for summer. Wednesdays will now feature local drafts for just $3. So, hit up Sips from 5-7pm and then head over to Trestle Inn at 7 pm to keep the deals (and the drinks) coming.

Each week will feature a different draft so you’ll get a chance to try a variety of brews at this low price. This special series will run straight through August and we’ve got the full July line up below.

The Twisted Tail Celebrates Four Years

Duck nuggets at the Twisted Tail.

Duck nuggets at the Twisted Tail. Because who doesn’t love duck nuggets?

When the month of my birth rolls around, I tend to celebrate for the entire 30 days. The Twisted Tail seems to have the same idea: as July marks their fourth year, they will be celebrating on all the days of the month that have the number 4 in them.

Blow-torched s'mores tots at last year's competition.

Blow-torched s’mores tots at last year’s competition.

Like their french fried cousin, tater tots are the ultimate comfort food. Little did we know, however, that tots are also the base around which creativity can flourish. Yes, if you can make a crispy-yet-fluffy tot, you may be able to take a burger to perfection. But why not let tots take center stage some of the time?

Provided we experience no blimp-related accidents (or gin-related hijinks, which seem far more likely), we’ll be back at the stick this afternoon.

In the meantime, may we present this (really kinda awesome) blimp safety video. Enjoy…

Because Sometimes It’s Sunday Morning And Beer Floats Just Don’t Seem Appropriate

CoffeFloatRemember when we wrote about those beer floats being done as a kind of sideways collaboration between Joe’s Steaks and Bottle Bar East? Those were awesome, right? But unfortunately, not every day is a beer float kind of day. Meaning that sometimes it’s Sunday morning and beer, no matter how delicious, just doesn’t seem like the right thing to be adding to your ice cream.

Well, that’s where Weckerly’s Ice Cream and Rival Brothers Coffee comes in.
