Trout Town Margarita

Bottoms Up
By Todd VanSickle | July 27, 2019

The start of the week just got a lot cooler in Kalkaska, thanks to Trout Town Tavern and Eatery’s Margarita Monday special. The $3 margaritas are a great way to help you forget about any Monday blues. The punch of tequila is contrasted by the sweet and sour lemony flavor of the margarita mix. If not for the tequila, the drink would taste like high-end lemonade in a salted-rim glass. It is most certain one margarita will not be enough. There are three different flavors to choose from including regular, strawberry, and raspberry. “We make our own mix with a hint of orange in it,” owner and chef Dan Bloomquist said. Need more motivation: “It goes with our Mexican entrees that we do for specials on Mondays as well,” owner Dan Bloomquist said. “The Margarita Monday special starts at 4pm and runs until close.  Find it at 306 Elm St., in Kalkaska. Open Monday through Thursday 6:30am to 9pm, Fridays and Saturdays 6:30am to 10pm, Sunday 7am to 3pm. (231) 258-2701,
