Margaritas plus chocolate
A new dessert/nightspot/bar is opening in Kenwood, probably making it the first dessert/nightspot/bar in the area. It's called The Chocolate Tequila, and it's going to be in Jalapeno's on Hosbrook Road. So it's not a brand-new place, but more of a concept within a restaurant.
Lori Levy is the woman behind it. Her idea combines Mexican food with chocolate desserts and drinks, plus live music and dancing. The signature drink will be a margarita in a chocolate and salt-rimmed glass. (I'll have to try that before I decide what I think.) There will be salsa music with Salsa Caliente once a month, and live music on Fridays and Saturdays. She's planning to do a teen night on Thursdays. "There are tons of restaurants in the area. You can go out to eat, maybe go to a movie, but then you go home," she said. "This is a way to make a whole evening out." On Second Salsa Saturdays, you can spend your whole Saturday night in one place with dinner from 8-9:30, salsa lessons from 9:30-1030, and dancing after that. She plans to open May 16.
