BBQ + Bourbon Special at Southern Rail: Every Monday and Tuesday

  • Southern Rail

Every Monday and Tuesday, from 5pm-close, guests can enjoy a killer deal on a platter of barbeque, accompanied by two glasses of bourbon, for only $20 at Southern Rail.

The sharable tray includes meat with sauce and a side. Each week the platter will change - juicy, smoked meats will depend on Chef’s whim, and seasonal veggies will influence the side. Think sticky ribs, pulled pork, smoked sausage, classic BBQ sauce and a side of crunchy chow-chow, paired with a glass of bourbon or a classic Old Fashioned.  Guests can choose from a selection of 12 different bourbons, which can be enjoyed up, on-the-rocks, or in a cocktail like a Sazerac or Old Fashioned. And for those that are not lovers of the sweet brown nectar, the offer also extends to a bottle of wine (also from a select list), or two draft beers.

Summer Wines Release Party at Carlson Creek

  • Carlson Creek Tasting Room

Join us on Thursday, June 22, 2017 from 5-8 p.m. at our Scottsdale tasting room as we host our first-ever dual release to debut our new summer wines, the 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and 2015 Chardonnay.  The release party will include complimentary tastes of the new vintages, paired with light bites, live music and conversation with co-owner and winemaker Robert Carlson III. A little about the wines: 

The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc ($19/bottle) starts with a citrus, herbaceous nose followed by a refreshing, smooth taste with good acidity and a long finish; a classical Sauvignon Blanc. It pairs well with everything from oysters and herb-roasted chicken to caprese bruschetta. 

The 2015 Chardonnay ($23/bottle) features a nose of honey, white blossom and apricot with a silky, round finish and a kiss of oak. A perfect pairing with Dover sole in a buttery cream sauce with seasonal vegetables.
