Summer Dining and Drinking Guide

We’re talking about some of our favorite parts of dining out in the summer in Albuquerque: ice cream, patios and day drinking (happy hour). We all deserve a summer break.

What could be a better combination?

Going out for ice cream is a special treat for most of the year, but during the summer it becomes a regular social activity.

Summertime: when food just tastes better outdoors

Dining and drinking al fresco is one of the things I look forward to for the whole five months a year it’s too cold to do so. Eating outdoors is just magically conducive to slowing down and thoroughly enjoying your food and the company you’re sharing it with.

Southern Comfort in the Comfort of the Southwest

Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey and Southern Food Pairing

Flights to Kentucky are expensive, and they have Polar Vortices over there. (Yes, that is the plural of vortex. Look it up.) Instead of making that trek on the hunt for some strong liquor and Southern hospitality, why not do some barstool tourism at O’Neill’s Pub in Nob Hill? This Wednesday, Feb. 20, come by to enjoy pairings of four Kentucky bourbon whiskeys with four Southern comfort dishes any time between 5 and 8pm. You’ll sip on Eagle Rare, E.H. Taylor, Buffalo Trace and Blanton's bourbon while the kitchen serves up fried green tomatoes, honey corn fritters, smoked brisket and a pecan pie tart. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday night, huh? The pairing is $25 per person and, obviously, only for those 21 or older.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

Although this is the big week for romantic candlelit dinners, hopefully you make time for a few of those at other times of the year as well. If not, well, maybe it’s time to start. Here’s a few of our suggestions for places to take your sweetie out to dinner on a special day, even if that special day is just “Friday, and it’s been a long week.” You’ll probably want to make reservations for these ones, and wear your nice shoes.
