Tag Archives: The Late Late
Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. In Locals Know, I explore a new city through the tours of Urban Adventures.
Last year, I helped design a tour for Urban Adventures that has been a huge success (if I do say so myself). It involves cocktails, so how could it be bad?
I lead the tour pretty regularly but we have about three other guides that also do a great job with it. So on the latest episode of Locals Know, I experience the New York Craft Cocktail tour from a brand new perspective thanks to Josh. Watch the video below to get a sense of the tour and watch us discover hidden bars, new speakeasies, and drink a whole lots of well-crafted cocktails.
I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…
Some bars specialize in rum drinks, some in craft beer, some in tiki cocktails. The Late Late specializes in Guinness. That’s right, the Irish beer. But they don’t just pour a perfectly creamy pint. They also mix the dark stout into cocktails. The one I was most surprised by is a classic beer cocktail called Black Velvet, which combines Guinness with prosecco. It’s very simple but the chocolatey notes of the beer plays nicely with the bright acidic sparkling wine. It might make you reconsider your weekend mimosa. Price: $10
