Look, it’s hot. So, incredibly-unbearably hot right now and we are not done with this heatwave yet. Nevertheless, we must press forward and try to get through this in one hydrated piece. We have been looking for places to grab an ice cold drink and cool off because otherwise, it feels like we are all going to melt.
Let’s start with the Reader’s Choice Award winner for Favorite Margarita, Gloria’s Latin Cuisine. Their award-winning House Margarita is made with 100% Agave Reposado Tequila and served frozen or on the rocks and will cool you down immediately. Try out the 1986 Margarita which is a tribute to when Gloria and José founded Gloria’s restaurants in Texas. www.gloriascuisine.com
Another Reader’s Choice Award winner, Nate’s Seafood and Steakhouse is the current title holder for Favorite Happy Hour. Come by Monday through Fridays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Nate’s has lots of great specials on drinks as well as the bar area is where all the regulars sit and it’s always a party! www.natesseafood.com
I am an avid soccer fan and The Londoner Pub has been a long-time favorite of mine because they show soccer on their screens and it’s a great place to hang out with other soccer fans. Their drink menu is extensive and full of refreshing and tasty drinks. From the Londoner Margarita to their beer list, come catch a match and grab a pint with the rest of the crew! www.thelondoneraddison.com
Staying out of the heat is key, but you also don’t want to be bored and miserable just staying indoors. That’s where Sidecar Social comes in. With lots of indoor games, bowling, live music, and great food as well as great drinks to keep you cool during these insanely hot days. Try the Frozen Peach Bellini, Island Girl, Spicy Piña Rita, and of course, make sure to check out their beer menu! www.sidecarsocial.com
This heat is no joke, make sure to stay hydrated and stay out of the sun!
