Okay fall, we’re in; just as long as there are nachos. Summer might be winding down, and we are definitely not ready. But, the one saving grace is the onset of football season. Labor Day Week is the kickoff to football season, and we know what that means. Yes, we love cheering on our favorite collegiate and NFL teams, but more importantly, it means time to get our grub on.
Start off the football season with some of our favorite munchies around Jackson to enjoy during the game or just for the heck of it.
Chips, dip, and guacamole. Few things go better together than a chip loaded up with your favorite spicy salsa and freshly made guac smothered in lime and cilantro. But add in a $5 plate of loaded nachos and $2.50 beers during happy hour? Perfection. Hatch Taqueria and Tequilas has the happy hour game down pat. If you’re looking for something with a bit more of a kick, wash down those nachos with a Hatch specialty: margaritas with tequila of your choosing, fresh lime, and agave nectar. Or spice it up with a Spicy Hatch finished off with Tanteo Jalapeno Tequila.
The perfect spot to meet for happy hour or set up shop for the night, the Local Restaurant & Bar offers elevated bar food that pairs perfectly with your game day rituals. Order up a plate of Local Fries with a trio of aioli and sauces and grab a seat at the bar. For round two, the custom built burgers feature juicy thick cuts of grass-fed beef with whatever toppings you may choose. Pro tip: You can never go wrong with a fried egg on top.
Calling all wine lovers. Not all game day traditions have to feature tallboys and hot dogs. Looking for small plates rather than a plate full? Bin22 brings an impressive wine menu by the bottle and by the glass, as well as a selection of Roadhouse microbrews to the table accompanied by small plates with cheese, salami, marinated olives and more. Have a glass at the bar, or take your favorite home to enjoy during the second half.
Fried green tomatoes, Silver Dollar fries, wild game meatballs, and slow-braised short rip pops – what isn’t to love about the apps options at Silver Dollar Bar & Grill? Whether you call this Jackson hotspot your go-to for live music or your favorite pub for Monday night football, Silver Dollar brings an atmosphere that makes any festivity a good time. Order up the Silver Dollar Burger and wash down that half-pound patty with the beer of your choosing.
