Life in Texas is never bland, foodwise, but we still don't really understand super-hot habanero shooters (followed by a glass of milk). Hatch chiles, which are in season now, aren't high on the Scoville scale, though, so we may expand our chile palate at Blue Mesa Grill's Hatch Dinner Party
featuring a buffet of entrees such as chile relleno, green chile steak and more. Dinner is $16.95 and is available at all locations between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. Thursday. Visit bluemesagrill.com
Thu., Aug. 23, 5-9 p.m.
