Brunch at 204

Standard

Who doesn’t like brunch? Who doesn’t like a bloody mary bar?

204 North debuted their new Brunch menu this past weekend and I can tell you that it was remarkable? Somewhere between the Avocado toast and the chicken and waffles, I found myself at the Tito’s Bloody Mary Bar. The choices were sort of nuts- pickle juice, hot sauce, slim jims? Yep, slim jims! You can build your own Tito’s Bloody Mary for 6 bones or you can have one of their awesome bartenders make you one for $4!

Brunch is served 11-3 every Saturday and Sunday! See y’all there!!

I can think of umpteen reasons why you should come to Cucina 24 this Saturday for their semi-not really-annual Tiki Night, instead I’ll hit you with the most important ones.

  1. It’s sponsored by BULLDOG Gin…this stuff is super special, so special, that Cucina is the ONLY bar in North Carolina to have it (I think).
  2. Some of the most BADASS people I know are guest bartending. Like, for real, we’re bringin’ in gin slingers from all over the US, specifically from the most famous cocktail bars in the country to help us throw down.
  3. Did I mention BULLDOG Gin?

Ok, so here’s the deal, this crew of badassery is a group of super talented people starting a tour of the East Coast making their way from NYC to New Orleans for Tales of The Cocktail. Not only are they stopping in Asheville for the night, but we’re putting them to work, not because Donnie needs the help, but because I need someone else to harass at the bar.

The graphic below has a full list of tour dates and who you can expect to be pouring those  way cool gin and tiki cocktails I was telling you about!

There’s a new guy on the block

Have y’all been to Moo & Brew on Central yet? No? Well have you seen that picture of the most amazing Bloody Mary called Large Marge floating around the interwebs? No? Ok, Get there…now!

Taking the old Joe Hoopers spot, this place is every bit of a neighborhood bar, with really good food.  You’ll find tons of draft beer but only a small selection of booze! Have no fear though, they have a delightful Tito’s vodka Moscow Mule on tap, along with several other refreshing cocktails on the menu.  I’ve posted that below for you guys to check out.
