Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? We've got you covered. Check out what's on our plate.
Friday Night Mussels @ House of Tricks On September 6th, 1987 Bob and Robin Trick opened the doors to their tiny 1920's house-turned-restaurant bringing elegant cuisine and a cozy atmosphere to the then eccentric spread of bars and restaurants that lined Mill Avenue. Celebrate the restaurant's 25th birthday this weekend with a bowl of their almost famous Harissa spiced PEI Mussels with charred yellow tomatoes, spicy chorizo and creamy sweet cilantro vinaigrette and a glass of wine from their award winning wine list. This is one dish that every Valley foodie should try at least once and don't forget to wish them a happy birthday!
Chili & Corn Roast @ Crooked Sky Farms It's chili season and if you're anything like us you're going to want to stuff your freezer full of the tasty roasted peppers before they're all gone. Crooked Sky Farms has your chili needs covered this weekend with their all-day chili and corn roast. Take a drive out to their 16th Avenue farm, load up on roasted chilies and chow down on an ear of the farm's juicy sweet corn. The roasting starts at 7 a.m. and wraps up around 3 p.m. Call 623-363-7422 for more information.
Bacon & Beer @ Whole Foods Chandler We don't necessarily like bacon in our beer but we're totally cool if you serve it to us on the side. This Saturday, drop by the Watering Hole in Whole Foods Chandler and score a plate of their house made beer and fig marinated bacon with a side of bacon bit goat cheese, feta stuffed olives, mini Croccatini crackers, and pint of Shiner Bohemian Black Lager to wash it all down with. The Plate & Pint deal will run you $8 and will be available from noon to 4 p.m.
Hot Wings @ Zipps Sports Bar & Grill Who's ready for some football?! Sunday football is back and there's no better game watching match up than a frosty mug of beer and a dozen hot wings. Celebrate the return of your favorite full contact sport with a batch of Zipps' extra spicy, extra tangy hot wings while routing for your favorite team on one of the sports bar's flat screens. These babies are hot so order with caution and if your taste buds are scared of the heat, order the mediums, they're just as good.
