It's that time again for an update on the upcoming month in restaurant news. This month, we have events to announce at several Jacksonville hot spots. Events include: a Labor Day weekend celebration at Cantina Laredo, Aloha Hour at Roy's, and multiple events at Intuition Ale, including a Labor Day special and trivia. Here's some specifics:
Event #1: Labor Day Weekend Celebration @ Cantina Laredo: As we've discussed multiple times, we believe Cantina Laredo offers the best upscale Mexican food in Jacksonville. The tableside guacamole and enchiladas veracruz are highly recommended. In celebration of Labor Day, Cantina Laredo is offering a $5 Casa Rita through their E-News service. To sign up go to the link at the Cantina Laredo website.
Event #2: Labor Day Weekend Aloha Hour @ Roy's: Roy's in Jacksonville Beach offers some of the best fish in the Jacksonville area. The Lakanilau sushi roll has kobe beef on top and is one of our favorite sushi rolls of all the time. For Labor Day, Roy's is offering $6 drinks and "bites" appetizers each night during Labor Day Weekend. Bites include Wagyu Beef Sliders, Smoked Mahi Mahi Tacos, Tempura Crusted Spicy Ahi Roll, Big Island Ebi Roll, Beef Short Rib Tacos, and Crunchy Golden Lobster Potstickers.
