Saucebox is a bar that has a Buddha statue surrounded by candles. When you see the Buddha statue (it's by the bathroom) you might think, "Oh god, really? Asian-inspired food, cocktails, and décor are one thing. Subtlety is good. But did you have to go full Buddha statue?" Well, Saucebox earns their Buddha statue surrounded by candles. They earn it with drinks like their "Best" cocktail, a mojito-like concoction that makes the most of the mint leaves that float within it. They earn it with cocktails of the day, like cucumber margaritas playfully garnished with bright flowers. They earn that Buddha statue by letting you drink out of a pineapple. Accept the Buddha statue. Bow your head in benediction, and drink your drink. JOE STRECKERT
