Chicken and Waffles at T-Bones Chophouse & Lounge

The T-Time happy-hour menu, created by executive chef Joseph Kudrak, is filled with creative twists on conventional bar snack food. One of the best creations is the chef’s take on the crowd favorite, chicken and waffles. The dish starts with chicken strips marinated in buttermilk and then fried till crisp outside, tender inside. The strips are served on top of soft, warm malted batter waffles and drizzled with jalapeno-infused maple syrup. It will almost make you forget you’re eating at one of the city’s high-end steak houses. $5 during happy hour 5-7 p.m., at Red Rock Resort, 11011 W. Charleston Blvd., 797-7576,

Make That Winetail Culture

A winner since Day 1! We’re talking about this cocktail—er, winetail, which has been on Double Helix’s menu since it opened Jan. 17, 2008, but the same could be said for two of the bar’s three co-owners, Menelaos “Lucky” Metalios and Ray Nisi, lifelong friends and college roommates. “It’s our good luck charm!” says Nisi of the sunny drink. The Lucky Ray was just the first of Double Helix’s unique menu of winetails—that is, cocktails that use wine instead of hard liquor.
