First off, this place is a great space - there's a gigantic custom bar, lots of cozy booths and a covered outdoor area with a generously sized fireplace. So of course, my first stop was the bar. They had several friendly waiters making the rounds with samples, which I tried all of. Research people, research. Of course, as a dark beer, fan, I quickly snapped up with porter and got myself some snackies. The pretzels at this place are amazing, as is the ahi tuna bite with wasabi avocado sauce and the scallop shooter. I'm not a big meatloaf fan, but word on the street was this was pretty good.
In addition to the bar's signature homebrews, there was a selection of local guest taps and their favorite house cocktails, including the perfect patron margarita and the flying monkey (pink drink, yes please).
After enjoying a few beverages, you'd better believe I hit the mini desserts. The best by far was this smores dessert that was a dark chocolate pudding with toasted marshmallow fluff on top and graham crackers on the side. Swoon.
The place was packed!
