👋🏽 What's good? It's Sam. My reporter friends and I meet up every Thursday to catch up.

  • We hit one of our favorite spots last week: Two Birds.

The intrigue: The east side bar off Van Dyke and Kercheval is pretty cozy — it's the first floor of a house with a big porch and plenty of nearby street parking.

  • There's plenty of seating and it never seems too crowded, even while people are dancing and waiting to order drinks.
  • My only complaint is the shaky cell service, but at the bar with friends, maybe that's a good thing.

Zoom in: I ordered what the menu describes as a "luxurious and comfy" Flight Risk, which comes with Woodford Reserve bourbon, Aperol, grapefruit and lemon basil.

  • For non-alcoholic drinks, try the super refreshing Sunshine: mango, cranberry, lemon, honey and mint.

If you go: Follow Two Birds on Instagram to stay on top of the local food pop-ups they host each week.

  • Open from 3pm-midnight Monday-Thursday and 3pm-1am Friday and Saturday. Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • 8130 Kercheval Ave.
