Okay so.. I know I have been slacking I am so sorry! I’ve been so under the weather and in pain for the last two weeks! But now I am feeling much better and in a giving mood! So I am going to do a ‘Hidden Gem of the Month’ each month to help you guys spice up your social experiences right here in H-Toooown!
First up: Eight Row Flint
I love meeting new people because they always open up a new door in your life, and you get to always try new things. So my friend Lauren and her gf are very close friends with Ashley and I, and we often hang out. So on this particular day they told us to meet them at Eight Row Flint. I have NEVER heard of this place but you know I am always down to try new shit!
This. Place. Is. Uh-MAZING! From the atmosphere, to the food, the service, and the drinks I did not leave disappointed. I actually left with a major buzz! (lol)
Eight Row Flint offers a LONG list of Whiskies and Bourbons, and if you love brown liquor like me then you’ll love this place. They have every type of bourbon from Wild Turkey to Four Roses, and every type of Whiskey from George Dickel White Whiskey to Stranahan Diamond Peak Whiskey. All of the bourbons, and whiskies are made right here in the United States! They also have frozen drinks and specialty cocktails if you’re really not a Bourbon or Whiskey drinker. Drink prices range from $3 to $40 (not too toooooo bad!).
My favorite is their ‘Cheap Thrills’ special which is a shot of Jameson, Four Roses Yellow, OR Old Forrester for $3! Add a Miller High Life for just $1!!! They also have Whiskey Flights where you can try 3 different ones for about $20! I did not forget about my beer lovers, they have a pretty good selection with some local favorites!
**side note this place is located in a area of the Heights that is considered a ‘dry’ area. So if you’re new to this place they will have to register you to be in this ‘club’ so they can serve you alcohol!
Also Happy Hour is 2-6 Monday through Friday(Food and Drinks) and All Day on Wednesday! (Drinks only)
Now, lets get on the food.
They have the BEST veggie Yes I said VEGGIE Tacos! Brussel Sprouts, charred onions, Radish, Crema, and Queso Fresco all in one corn taco! Absolutely amazing! They also have other options like nachos, tostadas, chips and dip, as well as quesadillas! A cool thing about this place is that they have an actual food truck in the back that makes your food, and the waiter brings it right out to you! (I did not get a good picture of my taco, however just TRUST me on this!)
Last but not least…I absolutely love the fact that they have ONE restroom. That is totally awesome! I was confused at first when I saw a man washing his hands I thought I walked into the wrong restroom! But no, one restroom is for everyone! Yaaaasss Eight Flint Row for this no gender specific restroom!
If you’re looking to relax with a good drink and great food then this is the place for you! Just make sure you bring your jackets, because this place is located in a garage type venue! THANK ME LATER!
