Settle In at Saloon for Sips & Sizzling Snacks
Join Saloon’s Beverage Director, Manny Gonzales and Chef Derek Clough and escape to Mexico with a night of mezcal cocktails and inspired cuisine on Thursday, February 28th!
During the evening in Saloon’s semi-private dining space, enjoy a variety of seasonal Mezcal cocktails, as Manny introduces each and assists in distinguishing the flavors, spices and notes.
