60 Degrees Mastercraft

I was attending a happy hour for a Mom's group, and they picked 60 Degrees Mastercrafted.
If you recall, I only had a so-so experienced there last time.
We started with the cheese plate, as you can see, it came with alot of stuff.  5 kinds of cheese, 4 kinds of dips and toasts.  I wish they gave you more toasts, we had to ask for them couple of times.  I think some times common sense needs to kick in, when you see a group of ladies, big cheese and dip plate with 5 pieces of toast just wasn't going to cut it.
This is their Seafood Campechana, which has big lumps of crab meat, shrimps, onion, tomato salsa, avocado and plantain chips.  This was very good, everyone liked it and almost ordered another one.

Not pictured were Ribs, Bruschetta, Truffle Fries, Fried Asparagus, Brussels Sprouts.  They also have good drinks specials.  I had the Tajito, which is Mojito - Texas Style, really just put moonshine instead of rum.  Very good and refreshing on a hot day.  Plus, it's $6 during happy hour special, it's worth having a couple.

Overall, this experience is better than last one.  The food is good, and maybe because we have a decent size group and the conversation distracted me on their service.  But, I will say, it was weird that the Happy Hour food only goes till 6pm, and the drinks goes till 8pm.  Usually, places changes over at 7pm, this split thing threw us off.  The drinks were good, and of course, if your drink is made by the sommelier, chances are your drink is perfect.  Still have an issue on the forced valet thing, but if you go during the weekday, it's not crowded and you can find street parking around the corner.
