I don't do these things very often, but every once in awhile an event comes along that I am excited about--so if I happen to get a couple of tickets to give away, I am going to do it. Brad Gates Catering and Flat 12 Bierwerks got together with a bunch of local chefs and producers to make this event happen to benefit the City Market on Saturday, December 15th from 7:00-10:00 pm.
I love the idea of the event because as you guys probably know, I am not overly knowledgeable about beer and this seems like a fun way to try a bunch of different beers that have been paired with food. Of course, if you actually know something about beer, I assume this is going to be a fun event for you too because I'm pretty sure these chefs know what they are doing.
A couple of sample menu items are things like duck breast pancetta over white beans and stone spice from Chef Craig Baker of the Local paired with White Beard Wit; a great sounding goose confit from Regina Mehallick of R Bistro paired with Chestnuts Roasting Brown Ale; and Brad Gates is doing scallops over a salad of cod cheeks, Goose bacon, and Eden Farms lettuces paired with Glazed Ham Porter. There are a bunch of other great chefs participating as well (check it out below) and there will be live music.
If you would like to win 2 free tickets, leave a comment on this post and around 1:00 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday the 5th), I will choose a random person to win (tickets to be picked up the night of the event). I will post the winner in the comments below tomorrow afternoon (and you'll have to give me your name and phone number to give to the event coordinators). So be sure and check back (if I don't hear back from the winner in 24 hours, I will do another random draw).
Also, if you want to buy tickets, they are on sale at each participating restaurant, by
