Shake it for me girl

LIVERMORE

By Zoe Marshall

Where: Sauced (Livermore).
When: Friday or Saturday night.
Make sure to bring your: Dancing shoes (and possibly ear plugs).
Cash factor: Moderate.

So you like country, huh? Then Swagoo has the perfect date for you. Head out to Livermore and stop by Sauced BBQ and Spirits on a Friday or Saturday night. Sit in the cocktail area near the bar and do two simple things: 1) Order the Rednexican Nachos (pork and burnt ends are the BEST) and 2) Choose from one (or a few) of over a hundred whiskeys they carry (some even on tap). Or, if she’s not a whiskey girl, you can choose from one of the many signature cocktails- our favorites being the peach mule and cucumber watermelon lemonade. For a lot of spice, go for the mango jalapeno mule. Those things are no joke.

Then stay for live country music (starting at 9:30). Be prepared to wish you brought ear plugs, but soak in the rowdy crowd and exciting ambience all around you. Finish off the night with some fried Oreo’s because is there really anything better than deep fried cookies served with vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce and powdered sugar? Doubtful.

If your date likes whiskey and isn’t afraid to help you devour a giant plate of nachos and fried Oreo’s, you know she’s a keeper.
