Rhody’s Food and Spirits

Rhody’s Food and Spirits

Spring is in the air!

Welcome April. We have ever so impatiently been awaiting your arrival. If all has gone as planned, by the time this issue reaches your hands, all of the snow has melted and each and every one of us are doing the happy “Spring has Sprung” dance. As the warmer air drenches us with balmy 60-degree temperatures and flowers and plants break the earth’s surface, we will all know we have survived another winter. April is here and with glorious excitement we look forward to the change. What does this mean for us locally? Time to shake off those cold weather doldrums, call up some friends, and hit the road. Where do you go? How about Rhody’s Food and Spirits?

¡Viva La Mexico!

¡Viva La Mexico!

Hello March, how do you do? We are all hoping you are a month filled with mild temperatures and no snow, but we also know there is very little likelihood of that happening. So for those of us who couldn’t make it to a sunny location with sandy beaches and palm trees, jump in the car and head to Los Aztecas Mexican Restaurant. They have two locations in Dubuque and one in Galena. From the minute you pull up to either of the Dubuque locations, you already feel like you’re being transported. Both buildings are in a rustic terra cotta hacienda style. Galena’s location is in a strip mall, and does lack a bit of curb appeal, but the interior makes up for the exterior.

Vinny Vanucchi’s: A Little Taste of Italy in Your Own Backyard

Vinny Vanucchi’s: A Little Taste of Italy in Your Own Backyard

February is upon us and another Midwest winter has us deep in its clutches. There is not much to look forward to past Christmas; days are short, weather is cold and unpredictable, and as we all know, spring will not come as soon as any of us would like. Although there are many a winter’s activity around, such as skiing, ice-skating, and snowshoeing, we enjoy the winter sport of searching for the perfect location to shake off the cold while burying our winter sorrows in some good old-fashioned comfort food. Vinny Vanucchi’s fits the bill perfectly on both counts, with the added bonus of two locations – the original location, on Main St. in downtown Galena, and their second location in Dubuque, also on Main St.

Paradise and Lunch

Paradise and Lunch

Happy New Year! The whirlwind of holiday celebrations, shopping and parties, cooking and cleaning, has come to an end. December has come and gone in a blink and a new year is upon us. January is filled with New Year’s resolutions, cold, short days, really good sales, and football play-offs! No better place to partake in all that than in downtown Galena. Step out onto Main St. for a brisk walk and hopefully a great deal at your favorite store. Then stop at the Paradise Bar and Grill for a cold beer, a warm bowl of chili, and the sport of your choice playing on one of many televisions.

Supper Clubs – Dining Steeped in Tradition

Supper Clubs – Dining Steeped in Tradition

December is upon us and the air is filled with the smell of pine and peppermint. The holiday season is in full swing, and between shopping, office parties, and kids events, your plate is full before the cookie tray reaches you. Everyone loves to have family come and visit, but often we find ourselves overwhelmed with everything else and have no time to plan for a big pre-Christmas dinner, or worse, Sunday brunch!
