Hump Day Happy Hour at Revolution

Haystack Shrimp with Lemon-Basil Aioli

 I can’t say enough great things about Revolution and the touch of class they added to La Buena Vida’s first gathering of food, wine and life lovers. What was billed as a Happy Hour morphed into five hours of conversation and laughter. The service was impeccable and presentation was mouth-watering.

Beer Braised Mussels with Tomato Basil

 The Menu:

Venison Carpaccio – shaved fennel, green onion and dijon with bruschetta

Beer Braised Mussels with tomato and basil

Monte Cristo

Octopus and Crab Crustini

Haystack Shrimp with Lemon-Basil Aioli

Monte Cristo, not officially on the menu but it had our vote

The word is definitely out that Revolution is the place to go downtown Durham for an excellent meal with flair and an innovative menu. I was surprised how busy the dining room was for a mid-week dinner service and the place had an upscale buzz without coming off as stuffy.

This meeting was a great beginning to some good times in Durham and we have more ideas of how we can get out and enjoy our city. So if you were not able to make it this time, clear your calendar on June 25th for our next event Running of the Bulls: Durham Downton Bar Crawl.

Hope to see you soon and keep living “La Buena Vida”
