Eight Row Flint
This modern Texas ice house throws a Dog Halloween Costume Contest every year, but you don’t have to wait until October to show Madam Pomfrey off. Bring her to the patio to play with the other pups as you enjoy whiskey from proprietary barrels, cold beers and frozen drinks, and tacos filled with Berkshire pork, 44 Farms beef cheek, and even Brussels sprouts.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
When: Monday - Friday, 2 pm - 6 pm
In a city of epic patio bars, Eight Row Flint might just win gold. It regularly draws in a mix of regulars and neophytes, even more so during happy hour, when select local brews go for $4.50 each and serious house cocktails including Old Fashioneds, Margaritas, Mules, and Palomas are $6.50. Like whiskey? Good. There are over 100 varieties to choose from, and you can up your game by ordering a Cheap Thrill—a shot of Jim Beam Black, Wild Turkey 81, Ilegal Mezcal, or Pueblo Viejo Blanco Tequila—for $3.50 any damn time you please (not to mention the option to throw in a Lonestar for $1.50 or White Claw for an additional four bucks).
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating or order takeout via Toast.
