Pizza and beer at Vector Brewing

It’s Highlandette Spirit Night at both Vector Brewing and Taco Joint, and you have a delicious decision to make.

Whether you dine in, take out or enjoy the patio at either Lakeridge restaurant, the high-kicking Highlandettes will receive a percentage of sales from 4-10 p.m. this evening. The Lake Highlands High School drill team’s audition-only “red line” will perform a high kick at 6 p.m. in Lakeridge’s central greenspace, and live music begins at 7 on Vector’s patio.

Vector Brewing, owned by Lake Highlands’ own Craig and Veronica Bradley, is known for their rotating array of hand-crafted beers on tap. They also have pizza, pasta and appetizers, including flash-fried Brussels sprouts and their mound of buttermilk-battered, southern fried onion strings.

Taco Joint’s Wednesday special is the sour cream chicken enchilada plate, but that’s only a starting point. Try Clyde’s taco combo, with marinated beef or chicken fajita in a warm flour tortilla, The Lester, with refried beans folded around a crispy corn shell filled with ground sirloin, or The Sophie, filled with carrots, squash, zucchini and other veggies in a whole wheat tortilla. You’ll want to begin with The Disaster, queso mixed with ground sirloin, guacamole and pico de gallo.
