Share Some Bites with Your Sweetheart


Did you know that April is Couple Appreciation Month? This “holiday” month was founded back in 2010 as a way to encourage couples to do something special to re-enforce and celebrate their relationship. We think that is super sweet and a great way for couples to sprinkle some more fun, romance, and sweetness into their relationships.


This may be the last weekend of April but is never too late to celebrate the love you have for each other. Our restaurants have the perfect casual, yet elegant environment to add that special vibe to your date night out. Come enjoy a meal together and be sure to share a dessert to spark some sweet electricity between the two of you.


Our locations also offer amazing cocktails that will surely get you in the mood. So, another great idea would be to sit by the bar for a couple of drinks and appetizers while enjoying each other’s company and conversation. Maybe prep 10-20 questions that’ll spark interesting conversations and help you get to know each other better.


We suggest ordering a Fleur De Lis cocktail or bubbly, share a Spinach Artichoke dip as an appetizer, and end the night with our Chocolate Uprising. You will have fun just by feeding each other these delights. Be one step ahead and make a reservation for Copper Canyon Grill here and for Stanford Grill here today to surprise your sweetheart. See you soon, lovebirds!


Toast with a Peartini this Weekend


The weekend is finally here and we’d like to invite you to stop by for a refreshing spring cocktail. Our cocktail menu is currently offering a variety of great tasting cocktails perfect to enjoy this season. May we suggest our Elite Margarita or Peartini? (Hint: The latter is a favorite of many!)

However, if you can’t make it to our bar this weekend, we’d like to share the recipe for our Peartini cocktail so you can experiment at home. Make it for a friend or significant other to share and impress away. Here’s the recipe for our sweet and refreshing Peartini.
