[UPDATE: TODAY!] Announcing the Second KCRW Good Food/OC Weekly Happy Hour! For Nov. 10!
Mesa TOTALLY doesn't have to do this, but it's giving out one free appetizer at 7:20 p.m. for anyone who's there, first-come, first-served: rib-eye tataki with arugula and capers. The special drink (for five bucks!) will be mixologist Jane Clark's Fall Spiced Sangria: red wine, peach liqueur, brandy, fresh orange and pomegranate juices, apple, orange and lemon slices, and housemade juniper berry/anise simple syrup. OH, SNAP! The food special, meanwhile, will be Mesa chef Jason Travi's Southern-style fried-chicken slider, lightly decorated with aioli and a house pickle, served on a torta with a side of crispy artichoke hearts and remoulade sauce. That one will set you back $10. YUM.
More details to come on our end of the goodies WE'LL be giving out. See you there!
