YEE-HAW!!! Sweet Tea Bourbon Lemonade served up in mason jars.
If you are looking for a Texas themed bar you can’t go wrong with this unpretentious watering hole down in the East Village called by the name Double Wide. Two rooms, one a lounge area, and one a bar area. Some flat screens with the game on. Cool, friendly, and sassy bartender chick who laughs at your stupid attempts at humor and mixes up a mean drink.
Seriously, she seemed to fill up half the mason jars with bourbon – wow! At only $8 each of these are intoxicatingly affordable. Being that we were here during Yelp Drinks Week it was an outright ridiculous bargain at half off! I got a bit rocked off these! I do have to say I love drinking out of a mason jar. Makes me feel all country-like. Add in my bourbon love and I was about to get up on the bar and do a two step. Ride ’em cowboy!
Of course they have some good eats here too. Some of the finer cuisine we sampled on this night consisted of –
Short Rib Frito Pie!!! Served up in an iron skillet with slow-cooked chili, topped with aged cheddar and jalapenos. OMG!
Super crispy chicken wings they way I like them.
Texas Queso & Chips. Creamy crispy cheesy goodness.
French fries with garlic aioli.
Again – YEE HAW!!!
All delicious. I think I ate my week’s full of calories right here, even though we shared these plates among a few of us. I am totally scared to even know what my cholesterol count is now. Better get back on the treadmill! Yes, I’ll have another Frito Pie. Don’t judge me!
Happy Hour every day until 8pm. Wednesday Night Trivia @ 7:30pm weekly and play for free drinks and prizes. They even have a dart league starting up on Monday and Tuesdays. There is even a back patio. Just a chill spot for anyone – beer snobs, foodies, cocktail lovers, and the locals alike.
