How To Enjoy Saturday, August 17, 2013: A Day Dedicated to Food & Drink

Tomorrow is going to be an absolutely beautiful day and, with how this summer has been so far, you better be making the most of it!

WindsorEats has planned what we feel is a perfect day to enjoy food and drink in the city of Windsor this Saturday.

Vegetarian Crepe at Lorelei's Bistro

Head out to enjoy an Eat Your City Restaurant Week lunch at a participating restaurant. To make things easier for the rest of the days plan, we recommend bringing your bike to Lorelei’s Bistro.

Bikes & Beers Cycling Tour

Join us as we cycle through the city one beer at a time on the Bikes & Beers cycling tour. We’ll be departing from the lot in Willistead Park, right next to the manor. Tickets are $60 per person. We recommend purchasing them in advance but you can also show up before we leave and pay cash when you arrive. If you haven’t rented a bike from us in advance, just remember to bring one the day of!

Walkerville Brewery

As part of Bikes & Beers, we’ll meander through historic Old Walkerville and arrive at Walkerville Brewery for some tastings and a tour of their facility.

While they’re famous for their burgers, the tour will then arrive at Motor Burger for another reason: their nano-brewery, Motor Craft Ales. We’ll get to sample their in house beers, like the recently relaunched Deja Blue. It’s a blueberry and lavender beer made with local ingredients. Oh ya, we’ll also get to try the great burgers.

The Bikes & Beers tour will then arrive at Rock Bottom Bar & Grill where we’ll be greeted by Carrie. She’ll be providing us with 4 different beers and an array of food.

Great Lebanese cuisine can be enjoyed on the Mazaar patio in downtown Windsor

Still hungry? Fear not! Stay at Rock Bottom for their Eat Your City Restaurant Week dinner menu (or their 30 beers on tap), or ride over to Downtown Windsor for another EYC restaurant, like Mazaar, which offers some pretty fantastic Lebanese cuisine.

The patio at The City Grill in downtown Windsor

If you’re wanting the night to continue, walk across the street to The City Grill for some drinks. Either cozy on up to the bar or relax and people watch on their patio.

Time flies when you’re having fun!  If you’re in need of a midnight snack, just a short walk from The City Grill is El Patron Taqeatery, a great little place for some Mexican. They’re open until 3:00am just in case you were really enjoying those drinks.
