Opal Divine's

With no disservice to the beloved Dog & Duck Pub (especially since it is run by D&D alums) Opal Divine's has, in a very short amount of time, become one of the most popular watering holes in town. The old house at Rio Grande & Sixth has finally found its niche as both working professionals and local residents crowd its two cozy levels, two outdoor deck areas, and numerous rooms that give its sometimes close quarters an air of neighborhood friendliness. The menu is a cut above the usual bar food, too, with sweet raspberry tea a perfect soother for the blistering heat.
