  • There are TONS of steak houses in Chicago and many of them are quite excellent so sometimes the differentiating factor is simply the "total package".

    As such, when I had the chance to check out the new menu at Jack Binion's Steak House inside the Horseshoe Casino in Hammond, Indiana (a short drive south of Chicago) I was excited for the opportunity.

  • pisco-porton-header-imageIf you think that Tequila, Rum, and Cacasa are the only spirits from South America then you need to bring a chair up to the bar and try some Pisco. This is a colorless to amber spirit made from grapes and can be compared to a grape brandy. 

    This spirit has been distilled in the winemaknig regions of Peru for hundreds of years and is now making its way to the United States!

  • tequila-avion-header-imageTequila tends to be a summer drink in the United States - it is synonymous with margaritas and doing shots on the beach or around a campfire. However, there is more to the spirit than just that. To help convince us, Tequila Avion sent us some great recipe ideas that will go well with your Thanksgiving celebrations this year.

  • header-imageThe word "Oktoberfest" likely causes images of a raucous bar scene with giant steins of beer and busty waitresses dressed in dirndls. What if I told you that there was a family-friendly restaurant with authentic German food that was a perfect date location too? That's the quick synopsis of our experience at Edelweiss Dining - located in the Chicago suburb of Norridge.

    For more than 30 years, this restaurant has served up some of the best authentic German food in all of the Chicagoland area.

  • tequila-avion-logo-headerMargaritas come in all shapes, sizes, and in a variety of ways –from mango to strawberry, to frozen or straight up. With all of these types of margaritas available, deciding which to drink on Cinco de Mayo can be tricky.

    So why not save yourself the trouble and go with the best? Man Tripping had a chance to try Tequila Avion reposado recently and we love the flavor!
