Come celebrate your right to imbibe! Repeal Day Party Saturday, December 5th with DRINK SPECIALS from 5pm to 9pm.

Prohibition Fun Facts:
  • Some towns were so convinced that alcohol was the root of all evil, and prohibition the cure, that they sold there jails.
  • "Bathtub gin" got its name from the fact that alcohol, glycerine, and juniper juice was mixed in jugs too tall to fit under a sink tap and so they were filled in the bathtub.
  • The term "powder room" was coined to denote the minimal bathroom facilities for women that were hastily installed in formerly all-male saloons once they had become speakeasies open to both genders.
  • "What America needs now is a drink" declared President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the end of Prohibition.

Drink/Think/Learn: Tequila 101

Tuesday May 5th 2015

The first in our series of Drink/Think/Learn classes is a tequila tasting and education in honor of Cinco de Mayo. Compare four tequilas and learn two tequila cocktails. Complimentary light hors d'oeuvres. Fun, fact-filled, and adventurous. Class starts at 7pm.

We start with a side by side comparison of three varieties of Lunazul 100% agave tequila:

  • Lunazul Blanco
  • Lunazul Reposado
  • Lunazul Anejo.

Then depending on which you like best, you can choose one of:

  • Milagro Select Reserve Silver, or
  • Milagro Select Reserve Reposado

We finish with two classic tequila cocktails:

  • El Diablo - reposado, creme de cassis, fresh lime juice, ginger beer
  • Juschu - blanco, honey syrup, fresh lime, Angostura bitters

Our new chef Jason has come up with a few Mexican hors d'oeuvres to nibble on while you taste and learn:

  • "Veracruz" Octopus Ceviche with tostones
  • "Oaxacan" Pork Carnitas with gorditas, salsa fresca, queso fresco
  • Roasted Cactus with corn and carrot salsa
  • And as a palate cleanser... Agua de Sandia (watermelon water)
