Summer Sippin’

Refreshing cocktails on airy patios

Ahhh, the dog days of summer: the scorching heat, the mosquitos, the constant sweat. The only plus sides of the season are the special cocktails, open air patios and perfectly cool nights. Burque plays host to an abundance of locales for sitting and sipping. So, if you’re not already in the know, here are a handful of notable libations to drink en plein air.

Restaurant Review

The Fox and Hound

When you’re hunting for good bar food

Food is not a priority at sports bars. In fact, it’s usually little more than a fried piece of beer sponge. But at The Fox and Hound, hidden behind a tangled sprawl of restaurants west of I-25 at Jefferson, the food is taken seriously—frequently with good results.

Hey Bartenders ...

Squeezethegoddamnlimeintomydrink! Or, kindly set it on the rim of the drinking vessel—have some class, dude. Making people fish fruit out of icy five dollar liquid is not cool.

Bars shouldn't just be conduits of booze—pride should be taken in the creation of drinks. Might our city's lackadaisical bartenders take a hint from Tales of the Cocktail. This conference, held every summer in New Orleans, celebrates the grand tradition of coquetiers, pronounced koh-kuh-TYAYS. July being far off, another, less humid option is The Craft of the Cocktail, a book that claims to make master bartenders out of its readers.

Anyway, squeeze the lime, OK?

Webgame Wednesday

Tiki Island

Tiki Island manages to combine two of my personal favorites: playing videogames and making cocktails. It's an insanely challenging mix of Tetris and one of those Memory card games. Take a peek inside falling crates, find ingredients that match up and smack that space bar to mix 'em. Fun soundtrack and groovy graphics make up for the fact that you will lose. Often.
