Cocktail Culture: Upgrade Your Manhattan With This Maple Concoction


Cozy up to this fall-inspired cocktail

We love the brisk hit of cold air that Fall brings to our cocktail palette. A welcome to even more cocktails that tend to favor spirits from the dark side, or imbibing doses of scotch and bourbon neat just gives us the warm and fuzzies… literally.

Get a jump on peach season…in liquid form.

I don’t know about you, but I really wish this weather would figure out what it wants to do. Is it winter? Is it spring? This level of inconsistency is really throwing a kink into my already pressed drinking regimen. And although I’m one of those people who enjoy drinking seasonally, an occasional break from winter beers and stiff whiskey is sometimes a welcome change.


The “Fancy Pants” Burger at Grindhouse

Oh, you fancy, huh?

How do you stand out among a sea of burger joints? Make your burgers special. Each Tuesday brings something new and delicious to Grindhouse when they add a unique addition to their regular menu. Today’s special? A thick, juicy 1/2 pound burger on a fresh baked bun, cooked to any temp (as rare as you want) topped with aged white cheddar, habanero pimento cheese, sliced cornichons, field greens, and a house-made tarragon mustard, served with fresh cut fries and a chipotle honey mustard dipping sauce, all for 10 bucks. If you’re feeling frisky, add on a boozy milkshake and sit on that badass patio of theirs. It’s a perfect score in our book.
