The campus bar, which opened earlier this year, is a bar, restaurant, coffee shop and mini-arcade, which combine into
Captain Planet a good spot to spend a Saturday afternoon.
If you’re a fan of bloody marys, you’re going to want to take advantage of the $5 build-your-own-bloody mary bar, which features an impressive wall of toppings for you to choose from after selecting one of four vodka flavors. If you’re NOT a bloody mary fan, you can do a mimosa, one of Tank’s many draft or canned beers, or a video game-inspired cocktail (also available by the pitcher in case you’re really trying to get day drunk.) As the “Ethyl” in “Ethyl & Tank” is a coffee shop, you could also opt to get a mocha or latte or something and then, you know, add a shot to it. Cause priorities.
With almost two dozen dishes on the brunch menu, you’re bound to find something to tempt you at Tank. On the sweet side, Tank offers orange blossom french toast and creme brulee crepes. Savory selections include a stack of pancakes topped with pulled pork and cheese, a breakfast burger, and several southwest-style dishes. I had the chicken and waffle sandwhich, with a juicy chicken breast, bacon, cheddar and green onions wedged between two waffles and served with a side of maple syrup. This was a tasty sammich. And I learned a valuable lesson: if you dip french fries in maple syrup, they transform into breakfast fries.
Brunch at Ethyl & Tank is served Sundays from 8am-4pm. Ethyl & Tank is located at 19 13th Avenue.
