Sip & Savor: Wine, Whiskey, & Tacos

A Steal of a Champagne Deal

Champagne is such a nice touch, isn’t it? If you’ve been seeking one for a special occasion, or simply want an impromptu indulgence, head over to Daniel’s Broiler. In celebration of its 40th anniversary, all locations will be selling Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut Champagne — typically retailing for $140 — for $40 with the purchase of lunch, dinner, or a weekend brunch entrée. Get yours before months end when the special discontinues. Reservations can be made here.

Something to Taco ‘Bout — a Pop-Up

Longtime colleagues chef Brendan McGill, owner of Bar Hitchcock on Bainbridge Island, and Anna Silva-Arroyo are linking up for a pop-up experience we’re very excited about. Every Tuesday from here on out, Bar Hitchcock will become Tacos Arroyo from 4 to 9 p.m. Silva-Arroyo is serving up tantalizing flavors, like slow-smoked pork and Neah Bay rockfish batter with Pacifico beer. Plus, who could turn down tortillas hand-made to order? McGill and Silva-Arroyo worked together in the early aughts of his Hitchcock Family Restaurant business, working at Hitchcock, Hitchcock Deli, and Bruciato. So, when she approached him for a taco pop-up, McGill said it was a no brainer.

“Her Mexico City-style street tacos are amazing.” McGill said. “We’d love to share her vision, talents, and hospitality in a brick-and-mortar space one day. So, just like we did with Bruciato, we’re starting with a pop-up.”
