Three for Three: 1.18-1.20

Jan 18, 2008 at 4:50 pm

The weekend never seems long enough, but it's still plenty of time to try new restaurants or rediscover old favorites. Here are three recommendations of places I've visited in recent weeks.

Well, this week was kind of a wash here at Gut Check. Only yesterday could I actually smell and taste again. So I don't really have a restaurant to recommend, let alone three. Though I'll put in a good word for two old favorites that helped me battle my cold: a bowl of pho from Pho Long and a bowl of hot-and-sour soup from In Soo.

A couple of events to check out this weekend. Tonight is the Mardi Gras Wine Taste at both the Lemp Grand Hall and Mad Art Gallery. Brooke Foster has more information right here.

Tomorrow Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue) hosts the Cabin Fever tasting event.

That's all for this week. Next week: Why we shouldn't need the term "gastropub" in the first place.

Have a great weekend. Eat something good.
