Avenues Proper – Peckish later into the night? AP will now be serving their full dinner menu until 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights. The bar will also remain open until midnight for a nightcap or three.

Also, beer lovers should keep the last Wednesday of every month in mind, as the restaurant runs a recurring ‘cellar beer pairing’ special event; the crew pulls some reserved brews from the cellar and offers a pairing menu priced just $55 for the beer and food. They sell out fast, but sometimes extra spots open up and are offered via Facebook. This months pairing list includes:

Red Rock Reve (2015)
Epic Elder Brett (2014)
Uinta Birthday Suit (2016)
Red Rock Paardebloem (2016)
