Diners seeking less filling but nonetheless satisfying fare can build a charcuterie and cheese board featuring a selection of housemade and local artisan creations from a variety of purveyors. Coupled with one of the many unique and supremely satisfying cocktails, this approach is a fine way to while away a couple of hours. "Our lead bartender Heather Storm works with our team to create a drinks menu that ranges from riffs on old standby classics to new and exciting flavors," says Hibbert. "All of our infusions and syrups are made in-house." With a program established by CRG's in-house sommelier Roddy Kirschenman, wine drinkers (including this one) will be delighted to find a solid selection of good-value, high quality wines not generally available on the supermarket shelves. Particularly impressive are wines from the keg, a delivery system that guarantees freshness from the first glass to the last. We especially enjoyed the Tablas Creek white, a Californian Rhône-style blend that marks a welcome departure from the usual suspects, from a producer whose wines one usually has to purchase by the bottle. In summer months, the patio overlooking East Street provides an excellent vantage point for people watching, while several times a week musicians perform in the bar after 9. e perfect place to start an evening, end a night, or enjoy the whole experience, Union 50 looks set to breeze through its next five years with as much verve and confidence as it did the first. sl Union 50 is located at 620 N. East Street. For more information, visit union-50.com. slmag.net 91
