Dining in Bloomington, Indiana

After my visit to Kentucky Bourbon Country, I drove 3 hours from Lexington to Bloomington, Indiana for the Dad's Sorority Weekend with my daughter, Melanie, at Indiana University. First stop was Mother Bear's, the classic pizza joint in town that I've been visiting regularly since Mel's first visit to campus. That night, Mel and her friends brought me to a new Mexican restaurant on North College Avenue called Social Cantina, which features a great taco selection, washed down with potent margaritas. The place was hopping and it's a great space, with a long bar serving a vast selection of tequilas. The same owner also has plans to open a nearby barbecue and bourbon joint called Smoke Works. We always end our weekend at Mel's favorite brunch spot, Uptown Café, for omelets, fresh baked bread, and good coffee. There's usually a wait on Sundays but the line moves fast and it's worth the wait.
