Suburban Happy Hour – Redstone

I’d been to Redstone a few years back, but had never gone to a happy hour there. D set up one of his big happy hours, so I headed out. They have an outdoor patio area, which is covered, so it’s actually a really nice spot for a summer happy hour. I can see why it was so packed! And seriously, when I say packed, I mean packed. The poor server was entirely way too flustered! I felt bad for the little guy! I got a strawberry and balsamic martini. I forget what booze is in it, but it has pureed strawberry and a hint of balsamic. Ooh la la, this thing was tasty! And extremely strong. Like punch you in the face strong. I was not about to have two of these!
Here is the calamari dish that somebody ordered. They served it up with some spicy peppers and garlic and a chipotle aioli. Not bad!
Here are some cute little pulled pork sliders that somebody ordered. I didn’t try them, but they look quite nice. There’s some slaw in there, and some thinly french fried onion rings. The other popular drink of the night was this mango martini. Apparently, it wasn’t very strong and it cost more than my strawberry one! Suckas!
I was super hungry, and quickly needed a good amount of food to counteract that extremely strong drink. So I got the meatball sliders. I was talking to the server for some recommendations and he asked me how hungry I was. I told him very, and so he suggested these little cuties. Basically, they took a meatball sandwich and just wrapped each meatball around a cute little bun. Again, not bad, not bad at all.
But my favorite thing I tried was the cornbread! They call it the lodge cornbread and make it from scratch and bake it in this cast iron skillet. This is a big ass serving of cornbread, obviously. I absolutely loved this! I’m a big fan of cornbread, so when I find good cornbread, it totally makes me happy. It was dense, moist, and full of actual corn pieces. It was sweet and also spicy, with some jalapenos in it. This is the winner of the night!
