Looking for something to put in your mouth this weekend? We've got you covered. Check out what's on our plate.
Friday Night Mussels @ House of Tricks
On September 6th, 1987 Bob and Robin Trick opened the doors to their tiny 1920's house-turned-restaurant bringing elegant cuisine and a cozy atmosphere to the then eccentric spread of bars and restaurants that lined Mill Avenue. Celebrate the restaurant's 25th birthday this weekend with a bowl of their almost famous Harissa spiced PEI Mussels with charred yellow tomatoes, spicy chorizo and creamy sweet cilantro vinaigrette and a glass of wine from their award winning wine list. This is one dish that every Valley foodie should try at least once and don't forget to wish them a happy birthday!
Crooked Sky Farms
Chili & Corn Roast @ Crooked Sky Farms
It's chili season and if you're anything like us you're going to want to stuff your freezer full of the tasty roasted peppers before they're all gone. Crooked Sky Farms has your chili needs covered this weekend with their all-day chili and corn roast. Take a drive out to their 16th Avenue farm, load up on roasted chilies and chow down on an ear of the farm's juicy sweet corn. The roasting starts at 7 a.m. and wraps up around 3 p.m. Call 623-363-7422 for more information.
