Happy Happy

We learned some things about barbecue eaters this week.


Smoked Turkey Breast

You people have a smoked turkey problem.

We sold out of turkey everyday this week.  You know it was the week after Thanksgiving right?  We’re gonna have to rethink this week next year.

As left overs for things to be thankful for, our beer & wine license arrived this week.  We finally got to put some happy in the Happy Happy Hour with a nice line up of local craft beers.

Texas Craft Beers

One doesn’t have to leave Harris or Montgomery county to find some quality beer to pair with the happy hour menu.  Brisket stuffed jalapenos, sausage taquitos, pork empanadas, and turkey quesadillas were looking great.

Speaking of pairings. Wine and truffle pairing practice began.

And to think I used to hate practice.

Red Wine

Red Wine and Chocolate Truffles

Some of those reds and that Parmesan crusted browned butter & sage truffle made for a delightful combination of flavors not found everyday.  A white blend called 1836 by Llano Estacado paired with our Honey Lavender truffle was also pretty special; as well as, our chili truffle with Becker’s Tempranillo.

Truffle and wine flights might be the ticket for a nice happy hour.

We got so happy, we let a happy grandma loose in the White Room to dip her cranberry orange short bread cookies in dark chocolate.

Saturday brought us sunshine for a change and we had the boys in from Old Town Coffee Parlor doing a coffee pop up for the morning.

Here is their FB page.  They’re coming to Old Town Tomball next year and we want to help them get going.

Of course, on any day we can always make you a good cup of coffee using freshly roasted coffee by our most excellent local roasters: District Roasters & Orazure Hand Roasted Coffee.
