Whetstone Tavern has begun a Late Night Happy Hour. From 10 p.m. to midnight, the Queen Village bar and restaurant is offering $3 beers and $3 house wines every day (yes, including weekends). Chef Jeremy Nolen is also offering his Dad’s Burger (1 patty) and Roast Beef sandwich for $5. That’s just about half-price for the sandwiches.
There will also be a rotating sandwich special as well. Right now that’s the pictured braised pork belly with Korean Napa cabbage slaw. Expect the specialty sandwich to change every three to five days as the culinary team gets creative with the special.

He looked distracted, tired— sucking breath like a boxer in the third round suddenly realizing that the guy across the ring from him is more of a fighter than he’d expected. Read more »
