‘Haters Club’ Valentine’s Dinner and Drinks Return to Liberty Tavern
Gathering for Cupid Haters Features Heartbreakers Cocktails and $4 Local Craft Beers after 9pm
Liberty Tavern, located in Hilton Austin downtown, knows that misery loves company and is serving up food and drink specials to make February 14th worth loving even without the romance. Celebrating singledom? Rejoicing with the skeptics of the Hallmark holiday? Whatever the reason, Liberty Tavern is the place to be for Valentine’s specials from 5pm onward.
Bar specials include the nicely priced Heartbreakers Cocktail Menu: the Black Heart, a bubbly concoction of Moscato with a float of Guiness ($5.50), the Red Light, featuring Angel’s Envy bourbon whiskey, raspberry simple syrup, dry vermouth and a splash of soda ($6) and the Stupid Cupid shooter comprised of Angel’s Envy, Malibu rum, cranberry juice and triple sec ($4). To ensure one doesn’t drown in his/her sorrows, Liberty Tavern will feature a hearty dinner special – a Slow-roasted Double Bone in Pork Chop with smashed potatoes and sauteed broccolini with thyme demi-glaze. Other menu items that may bring back that lovin’ feeling include a fall-off-the-bone Pork Shank, Steamed Mussels in a local hefeweizen broth and the Crab Mac served with lump crab, cavatappi pasta and a five-cheese Parmesan crust.
In addition to the anti-Valentine cocktails, Liberty Tavern has a place in its heart for local beverages such as Tito’s Kick'n Mule and the Texas Sipper on tap along with beers from Austin Beerworks, Circle Brewing, Adelbert's and Hops & Grain. All local craft brews are $4 from 9pm until close. All Texas cocktails are $2 off from 9-11pm daily as part of Texas Happy Hour.
