We had grand plans today to hike and explore Dry River Gorge since it was a balmy 50 degrees, but rain soon cancelled our plan. Next, we decided to explore Dillon Falls in the rain, but snow and ice covered the road. Finally, we ended up spending our Christmas giftcards and shopping at Trader Joe's, Eddie Bauer (fantastic winter clearance sale) and REI.
After REI, we checked out Level 2 Global Food & Lounge http://www.bendlevel2.com/l2/Welcome___.html. I read about it in The Source Weekly and remembered they have pork belly sliders on the appetizer menu. We sat at the bar and had two lovely rounds of appetizers (very reasonably priced) and cocktails. The bartender was super friendly and informed us they are one of the only restaurants with Blind Pig IPA on tap. He also talked about the local vodka and gin they use as well as the upcoming menu change.
Here are some pics of our delicious food:
|Smoked pork belly sliders for $5. Seriously.|
|Grilled bok choy with shrimp and slow braised pork fried rice with sweet soy|
|Ahi Tuna Poke with crispy wonton, sambal soy vinaigrette, wasabi creme, macademia, and soy reduction|
|Potato Croquettes with masa, cotijo cheese, avocado creme and pico de gallo|
If you go here, skip the potato croquettes, and double the order of smoked pork belly sliders. Yum!
