Our Survey Of The Landscape Around Twin Peaks

If it roams our domain, it'll be up here!

Come celebrate National Scotch Day with us!

We have plenty of options to satisfy the most particular pallets.

Singles, doubles, neat or on the rocks- any way you love your scotch is something we can do. We can even chill it down with an Ice Ball made just for you by one of our Twin Peaks Girls at the bar. What’s the point? Both the size and the shape of the ice used in a drink effect how the drink will taste, i.e. slightly chilled versus a watered-down mess. Smaller cubes will melt faster, where the larger will put off less water while still keeping it cool. You’re welcome!
Nat'l scotch dayCan’t decide which scotch is yours for the day? We have a couple of suggestions.

Dewar’s 12 year
- AKA “The Ancestor”
- Whiskies are blended in vintage oak casks where they are left to age into a perfect bottle of scotch.

Johnnie Walker Black
- “Two decades in the planning”
- Whiskey is drawn from Scotland’s finest distilleries, and aged in casks. The wood, climate and location will differ a bit each time- bringing a uniquely aged bottle each time.

Balvenie 12 Year
- Hand selected casks picked for their sweetness and vanilla roots. One single cask will produce no more than 300 hand-numbered bottles that are completely original from each other.

Come to Twin Peaks and try some of your favorites with us. After all, it’s National Scotch Day!

It’s National Tequila Day!

As if you need any excuse, Friday, July 24 is National Tequila Day! What better place to enjoy your favorite tequila than at Twin Peaks?

Signature ritaWe’ll serve it up naked, dressed, chilled or straight out of the bottle. Twin Peaks houses plenty of Blancos aka pure form tequila, Reposados that have a little bit of rest and relaxation to them, and Anejos, which are the most aged.

• Blancos can be referred to as silvers, are younger and unaged.
• Reposados have a few months until their belts, giving them a golden hue.
• Anejos are the smoother, richer, more complex of the three, having sat in a barrel for a minimum of twelve months.

One of our long-time favorites is Patron, for more reasons than one. We’ll take two ounces of Patron Silver, mix in a little Agave syrup and combine with freshly squeezed lime juice. Our bartenders vigorously shake the Signature Ritas to make the best combination of lime and tequila we’ve ever seen. The small addition of Agave syrup allows the drink to be just a little bit sweet. Come celebrate National Tequila Day with us!

Aubrey, Miss Twin Peaks 2015, has worked for the company for the past 3 years and says she started working at Twin Peaks “because of the many great perks and the fun atmosphere.” She won her local competition earlier this year and said, “Getting to compete for Miss Twin Peaks 2015 alongside my fellow Twin Peaks Girls was a huge bonus. This has been a really incredible experience!”

July’s Sizzling Salad of the Month: The Steak Salad

Don’t let the word ‘salad’ fool you- this one needs a category of its own.

At Twin Peaks, we understand what a hearty appetite is all about. Every item on our menu satisfies those hungers and the steak salad is no different.
Steak salad
The steak salad embodies two amazing things- the freshness of fresh, crisp romaine topped with sizzling and grilled steak. The salad is mixed with spicy pico de gallo, bold pepper jack cheese, grilled roasted corn, crispy tortilla strips and black beans.

It’s tossed in house-made cilantro lime vinaigrette dressing, leaving you with the kick of cilantro on your taste buds. You make the decisions around here and decide how you want your steak cooked. If you’re feeling adventurous- next time try it with chicken or shrimp instead.
