Yardbird, Peacock Garden Cafe: Avian Happy Hours Start Tonight
|Yardbird Southern Table & Bar|
|Yardbird is making a Caribbean Sidecar tonight and tomorrow.|
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is launching a weekday Southern Social, starting tonight. From 3 to 7 p.m. on weekdays, Yardbird will feature discounted $3 beers, $5 wine, and $5 cocktails.
As part of the Southern Social theme, the restaurant will bring in a different guest bartender or mixologist every Thursday and Friday, where they will present their specialty cocktails.
Also, tonight and Friday, June 14-15, local bartender Christian "Woodside" Gonzalez and Clarke's Court rum will be offering up some rum-tastic cocktails. Clarke's Court is a family-owned boutique rum from Grenada. Though it's popular throughout the Caribbean, the only way to get a bottle in the past was to bring one back from the islands. Clarke's Court is now available in Miami, as part of a small U.S. launch.
Tonight's featured cocktails include the Clarke's Court Old Cuban, made with C.C. superior light rum, mint, lime, Angostura bitters, and champagne, and a classic sidecar, made with Clarke's Court special dark rum. The rum company will be providing samples and giveaways, as well.

In addition, the Peacock is offering two-for-one cocktail deals during healthy happy hour. Specialty cocktails are made with fresh herbs and fruits and include a lemon-basil lemonade, lemon-verbana lemonade (spiked with your choice of vodka, gin, rum, or tequila), and a passion fruit martini. All cocktails are regularly priced at $8.50.
