Falmouth Village Blooming is in full swing! The baskets are up, we’re gearing up for a killer Kids Day and lots of Falmouth Village’s Finest are offering up some pretty epic Bloomin’ Bargains.

After a Falmouth Village Board meeting, we treated ourselves to little homemade happy hour at Bear in Boots.

We saddled up to the beautiful bar (side note – did you know that the bar was crafted by another FVA member Saltwater Woodworks!?) and decided we were in the mood for some beers. Lucky for us, as a part of this birthday celebration they’re offering $4 pints of Down the Road Brewery, Sam Adams or Kentucky Barrel Ale. As if that’s not enough on its own, you get to keep the pint glass AND you’re entered to win a $50 gift card with every $4 pint!

Not a beer drinker? No problem! The’re also offering wine flights for only $14. And we can’t write a blog about booze at Bear in Boots without mentioning their incredible signature cocktails.

We settled on a round of the Down the Road Brewery IPA’s and took a look at the menu. This is when the really hard decisions needed to be made. We agreed that since it was “happy hour” for us and not a full blown dinner, we needed to limit ourselves to an appetizer (even though we desperately wanted to place a ‘one of everything’ kind of order).

The reason it’s so difficult to choose at Bear in Boots is because everything is scratch made. Everything. The ketchup! The bread! The smoked salmon on the cheese plate! The liver pate on the cheese plate! Speaking of the cheese plate… THE CHEESE PLATE! Just look at that charcuterie!  It was truly something to behold. Local honeycomb, home-pickled pickles, fennel salami, smoked salmon, liver and bacon pate, brie, cheddar, olives, grilled homemade bread! We just about moved in when we saw the charcuterie coming our way. Chef Joe and his team had outdone themselves!

BUT, what birthday celebration is complete without cake, right? That’s why all week long, Bear in Boots is offering their signature birthday cake which is FREE for children under 12. This is a celebration you do not want to miss!
