Where the stars fall on moonshine road

Posted on: January 4th, 2014 by Taryn Jeffries No Comments

Bootleggers, with the opening of their second location, is fast becoming the go-to spot for great eats and creative cocktails which include the exquisitely crafted moonshines they are serving up to thirsty patrons. With a menu based around barbecue and down-home comfort foods with a bit of a kick, you really can’t go wrong.bootleggers

Every once in a while, a restaurant that can easily stand on its own likes to kick things up a notch or two. Sometimes this equates to happy hour specials, two-for-ones and the like, but if you’re good, really really good, you play on the best parts of yourself.

Case in point; Bootleggers’ Moonshine Dinner. Can you, honestly, think of anything better than a six course meal paired with all kinds of moonshine concoctions? I can’t and am looking so forward to soaking it all in, course by delicious course.

Care to join me? At the Old Town Scottsdale location on Monday, January 6th, for only $50 per person (tax and gratuity excluded) you can immerse yourself in the very best that Mixologist Jason Asher and Chef James Fox have to offer with this special menu. Do paired dinners conjure up visions of stuffy and uptight folks sitting around a table chatting about where they summer? Not happening here. Moonshine is for the most fun of folk, so prepare for a great time. Opportunities like this don’t come around that often, so make sure you call 480.404.9984 to schedule your reservation.
