The Surfin' Cowboy, New Craft Cocktail and Burger Bar, Opens In Capo Beach
Ever wonder what happened to David Valiante, the tequila-loving bartender at Fullerton's Matador Cantina? Well, for a while he was tending bar for Gabrielle Dion at Broadway by Amar Santana, but then left to pursue his own mysterious projects.
There have been pictures of apple bitters and bacon-infused bourbon and all manner of what people who aren't me call "mixology"; Valiante's a lover of all things agave, so expect plenty of tequilas and mezcales. Also, unbelievably for South County, the place actually stays open late--they're open 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-2 a.m. Saturday, and 9 a.m.-1 a.m. Sunday.
