It's the end of June already ... yikes! Happy summer y'all.

Let's FORK!

TONIGHT! Head over to 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar (315 Old Santa Fe Trail, 986-9190) for a very special prix fixe fundraiser.

Alexa's Dinner for Hope is a meal in honor of Alexa, a young girl battling leukemia; 25 percent of all proceeds earned this evening will be donated to Alexa's family. A silent auction of a painting by David Santiago will also occur during the meal with those proceeds also going to Alexa's care.

Alexa is the daughter of Alfonso & Graciela Bojorqez, members of the 315 family for over a decade. She was diagnosed with leukemia in April, and her parents are doing everything they can to help her fight for her life.The hope is that the proceeds raised at this dinner will help Alexa return to her love of school, art, parks and being a wonderful big sister to her younger brother, Dylan.

WHEN: 5-9 pm tonight (Thursday, June 22)
WHERE: 315 Restaurant & Wine Bar
COST: $55

I finally stopped by El Callejon (208 Galisteo St., 983-8378). The new restaurant took over the spot occupied by El Paseo back in October of last year. I tried out the lechon torta ($9.50) and my companion had the carne asada tacos ($12). The food was great, the staff attentive, and the price is perfect.

We all miss El Paseo, but Raul Morales has evolved the space with love.


have teamed up for a unique event. Spirits and Cacao will both give short presentations about their crafting process and then you will get to eat some chocolate and drink some booze!

WHEN: 6-8 pm Thursday June 29
WHERE: Santa Fe Spirits Distillery (7505 Mallard Way, 467-8892)
COST: $30 (sign up HERE or on the phone)

I got some great responses to my question about your favorite late night spots in the last Fork. I'm putting it out there again before I put together a list. So ... late night? Where do we go?

See you next week,
