Strings Urban Kitchen (disclosure: longtime Cowtown Eats advertiser) is celebrating their first anniversary at Capitol Towers by opening an espresso bar.
In addition, they are giving away a free 12 oz cup of coffee, latte or mocha on Saturday, April 11 from 9 a.m. to 12 noon to mark the occasion.
I'm a huge fan of the place, and especially enjoy their retail wine shop with a curated selection by their in house sommelier and their great shaded patio for summer outdoor drinking.
Check them out on Saturday, or at for a happy hour soon. I think you'll enjoy it.
Strings Urban Kitchen is located at 1500 7th St. and can be found online at StringsUrbanKitchen.com.
