Hooch with Pooch and other Weekend Happenings!

The weekend is here and I have been scouting out some fun and interesting things to do this week-end!

First off, it’s #NationalTequilaDay and two of my favorite restaurants, Port Fonda and Zócalo will be featuring specials on the celebrated drink!

Delicious Margaritas at Port Fonda!

Zócalo will feature  $4 Patrón Silver sippers, as well as $5 Patrón Reposado sippers all day. Guests will have the choice of enjoying the selections as sippers, or adding to any margarita or tequila cocktail for a $1 upcharge. Drink specials will begin at 11 a.m. and will be offered until close. There will be live entertainment featuring DJ Perry.

Port Fonda will have specials on tequila flights and tequila inspired dishes all weekend long. This is one of the best places to be with the largest selection of agave spirits selection in the region! One of the delicious specials they are running was listed as Shortcake with Eatin’ Eden blackberries and Casa Noble añejo cream.

Need something a little more tame? Drunken Worm is offering  $3 Cafe Patrón XO shots all day. A coffee-infused tequila liqueur that goes great inside a cup of coffee! Tequila!

If tequila isn’t your thing, don’t forget to join me at Wines by Jennifer for an art reception for local artist Winnie Davis! Beautiful art, Wines by Jennifer and the picturesque background of historic Parkville is a great combination for a perfect Friday evening.

Lots of Music going on tonight! Tim McGraw will be rocking out at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater and the bands Everclear, Toadies, Fuel and American Hi-Fi will be playing the Buzz Beach Ball 2015 Pre-Party Show in the Power and Light District.

Start your Saturday off right and hit Yoga in the Park at the City Market Park! This is a FREE 60-minute yoga class that is open to everyone. Relax, rejuvenate and then hit the largest Farmer’s Market in the city. #Support local -you will find the finest produce and many organic foods all fresh from Missouri and the surrounding region at this Farmer’s market!

Looking for a fun afternoon with your kids? Beat the heat at the Nelson Art Gallery! Every Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. there are FREE hands-on activities, close looking and conversation with museum guides in the galleries and in the Bloch Lobby.

Head to Westport Cafe and Bar for dinner Saturday night! The restaurant in the heart of Westport is  celebrating their 5 year anniversary this summer, and recently launched a fresh menu with 10 new items on it, with new appetizers, entrees and cocktails! Sounds like a fantastic way to spend a warm summer evening.
