Bars to Watch: Passion 8


Guys, Passion 8 Bistro is known for their amazing food, Chef Luca is KILLING the kitchen game here in Charlotte, but did you know that their bar program is doing fantastic things too? I got a sneak peak of their new cocktail menu and it’s super tasty!!

Check out these beautiful concoctions below!



Also, don’t forget, This Sunday 6/17, there is a FemArt show at 1 pm featuring art by Lis Grace and Free Hors D’oeurves!




Brunch at 204


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!!

Spring has sprung..


…which means our favorite bars are releasing their spring menus and that is definitely something to be happy about!

Here is a fun one from our friends at Growler’s Pourhouse that features a homemade soda from Hart’s Soda Shop (be on the loookout for a profile about those awesome people coming soon).

I definitely can’t wait to try all of these!!


My true love gave to me..


…number 10.

As we wind down the list, we feature our 2nd mule. This one, quite different than the last.

Colleen Hughes at Crepe Cellar/Growlers is a rockstar, and her drinks are damn tasty too.

Check out holiday version of the classic Moscow Mule!

End of Summer Southern Social


It’s no secret that I love music and booze and combining the two is my absolute favorite thing ever! So we’ve teamed up with the guys at the NC Music Factory to bring a fantastic show to the Carolinas.

With other sponsors like Pabst Blue Ribbon , Ink Floyd and Price’s Chicken Coop, Tito’s Handmade Vodka and Sailor Jerry are ecstatic to be a part of this amazing group of music lovers to bring you St. Paul & The Broken Bones on September 11, 2015.

Guys, not only is St. Paul gonna rock the fountain stage but we’ve got great southern cocktails like Tito’s Lemonade and Cheerwine spiked with Sailor Jerry!

The best part, tickets are only $10. Yep, 10 bones (pun intended) will get you in to see a fantastic show! Click HERE for tickets.

We’d love to see you guys out there, be sure to buy your tix early because this show will absolutely sell out!!!
