Santa Rosa’s Bird and Bottle has a new happy hour, and its something to chirp about because everyone knows that owners Mark and Terri Stark know their way around a creative cocktail menu.
From 3 to 6p.m. Monday through Thursday, you can get a Tito’s vodka martini or Espolon Reposado Tequila margarita for $4. Wines are $6 and specialty cocktails like the Shiso Pretty (vodka, spiced pear, shiso shrub, and lime) are $6.
But it’s the happy hour street tacos that really have us abuzz. Just two bucks gets you a hearty handful of corn tortilla-wrapped smoked pork shoulder, housemade pastrami, Korean chicken thigh or fried cheddar cheese curd taco with spicy crema, sprouts, and slaw.
If you’re doing the math, that’s just $8 for a hearty snack or, in our case, dinner. There’s also $2 beers and 32oz growlers of Henhouse Saison, Russian River Redemption and Shattercone IPA for $10. The patio is still plenty cozy, so party on. And on. And on. At least until 6p.m.
