The Sundance Grill & Bar, a casual downtown dining destination, serves up a variety of scrambles, omelettes and skillets, many with a Southwest spin. Like the Albuquerque omelette, loaded with black beans, chorizo, jalapenos, green chilies, onions and cheese. Classic breakfast dishes make the menu too, like Michigan blueberry pancakes, thick cinnamon swirl french toast and a generously sized cinnamon roll. Throw in a side of the famous Sundance spuds and you won’t need to eat again until dinner.

Still, it would be a shame to miss out on lunch at Sundance. It’s a great time to settle into a comfy booth and nosh on tasty wraps, sandwiches and salads. There’s a coffee bar, too, and free wifi.

Happy hour specials run Thursday through Saturday from 3 to 6 p.m., with homemade sangria ($2.95), freshly made margaritas ($3.95) and a selection of draft beers ($1.95). Order the homemade guacamole or the Arizona eggrolls for a zippy starter, then choose from one of the many authentic southwest dinners, including carnitas, tacos and burritos.

The ArtPrize art you’ll see

All five artists showing at the Sundance Grill are sharing pieces inspired by nature. 

  • Susan Stanek’s entry, Interwoven, features an image of a pine tree at sunset crafted with sculpted paint, woven canvas and sewn brass wire. 
  • Mike Durco will be showing a 24” x 48” oil painting of a night scene near a body of water. 
  • John Myers is presenting a colorful, 20-sq.-ft. oil panting that’s a blend of his interpretation of the natural world and man’s influence on it. 
  • Larry Moore’s Lake Effect is an 8’ x 4’ ink on canvas, using light and photographic elements to tell the story of the beauty of the lakeshore.
  • For his entry, Big Fish, Charles Mayer used acrylics to create the contrast and color that take an ordinary view and depict it on a grand scale.
