Northwest Texas at its Best
Put Lubbock at the center of this
regional hub and you've got a slew
of northwest Texas towns in which
to enjoy some business - mixed with
pleasure. Emphasis on mix. Looking
for a tony tavern where the barkeeps
know their stuff or a distillery trip with
Caribbean flair (in Texas?!)? Plan your
next mixology-based mixer at one of
these fine dens of the drink!

Midland: The Blue Door
A popular place for local mixers
already, this upscale parlor changes
its craft cocktail menu seasonally
to keep things fresh - literally and
figuratively. Bevs on its recent spring
menu included the Hendrick's gininfused "Rose Colored Glasses,"
featuring lemon, Giffard Black Rose
and hibiscus bitters, and the adorably
named "Tropic like It's Hot," a tequilalime-pineapple party in your mouth.

Your attendees need not go for craft,
though. The Blue Door does up all the
classics for those who like things old
fashioned - or an actual
Old Fashioned.

Amarillo: Taste Dessert Bar
Cocktails and desserts? Yes,
please! This sweet spot in Amarillo
satisfies cravings for cocktails - and/
or cupcakes - with aplomb. Need
someone to help you determine
the best wine to pair with a salted
caramel cheesecake? No worries,
Taste offers its service and expertise
-and space! - for private parties
and events. They're also happy to
create custom menus for planners to
consider. www.tastedessert.com

Lubbock: Pinkerton's Distillery
Lucas Pinkerton is not only a proud
Texas native, he's a proud master

distiller whose culinary and brewing
exploration led him - as so many
things can - to rum! Made with
Texas cane molasses and a whole
lotta love, you'll find his various
products in stores and bars around
town, but he'd be happy to host
your private group on a tour of his
operation. www.pinkertons

Odessa: The Hemingway
For a smokier take on an executive
evening out, consider The
Hemingway when in Odessa,
where the staff is happy to help
you select certifiably good-to-pairwith fine wine and craft beer. Live
music - jazz, blues - rounds out the
experience. Great place to pick up
cigar-centric gifts for giveaways as
well. www.thehemingway
