Need an excuse to start drinking before noon? O.k. here’s a completely valid reason… This Saturday (June 29th) join SLC Eatery as they host Mountain West Cider for a brunch like no other.

Running 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. the restaurant will serve four courses paired with four of Mountain West’s locally made ciders. Laci Brown from Mountain West will be on had to guide diners through the various pairings, will be here to guide you through your experience.

There’s no formal word on what to expect from the menu, but as ever, expect some pretty innovative and exciting dishes. Cost is a mere $35, $20 for food and $15 for the cider pairing. I can’t think of a better way to start a Sunday.

Taqueria 27 Tequila Dinner

For a taste of something unique, pencil Monday July 8th in. That’s the next tequila tasting over at Taqueria 27, where the team will share a very special tequila with guests.

Owners Todd and Kristin Gardiner made a journey to Casa Noble back in February to personally select a unique reposado tequila barrel that would be bottled exclusively and shipped back to Taqueria 27. Several months later, 60 cases have made their way through customs and are available exclusively at T27 locations.

On the 8th, the Foothill location will host a casual evening of tacos and tequila. Chef Todd will talk about the process of selecting this tequila as well as what makes this single barrel tequila unique. Dinner will be family-style with chips, salsa, guacamole, and 3 of our the restaurants favorite tacos. There’ll also be a pour of both the regular Casa Noble Reposado and the single barrel reposado.

Tickets are priced at a trailing $30 and can be bought online here.

Held on the site’s plaza, there will be plenty of food trucks to snack at plus craft beer by Bohemian Brewery and classic American cocktails by Five Wives Vodka. Additionally there will be two stages with bands and DJs plus a karaoke stage, yard games, face painting and contests throughout the day on the main stage.
