Neighborhood favorite The Diamond is turning eight this week and you’re invited to their party!
On Thursday they will be celebrating their Eighth Anniversary in style with the return of eight of their favorite draft beers from throughout Diamond’s lifetime. Between 5-8pm these will all be half-price, so the likes of Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted, Local Option Dampfbier, and Schneider Weisse can all be quaffed for a mere $4 a pint. Happy Birthday indeed.
But the party doesn’t stop here. Saturday July 4th they will be hosting their famous Independence Day Grill Out….where $5 gets you a giant bratwurst with potato salad and watermelon, accompanied by a rad patio soundtrack from vinyl junkies Jackson Mico and Proudfoot.
While you’re there be sure to have a quick round of shuffleboard and if you’re rilly good then think about signing up to the monthly tournaments…winners get their name on the esteemed plaque of fame!
Hoarding a secret guac recipe that your friends have been coveting for years? The time has come to let it reap you some extra glory….at Diamond Bar‘s Guac-Off this Sunday!
The avocado showdown is part of a fabulous Taco and Ceviche pop-up hosted by local caterer The Fury, and the competing guac will be served up alongside tacos from 2-4pm. Diners will then vote for their favorite, ultimately crowning one contender Guacamole Master Extraordinaire (and earning them a glittering prize!!)
Anyone wishing to enter the guac-off should email Dave: firstname.lastname@example.org
To take part, just make up a standard serving (approx 3 avocados) and take it along on the day. Diamond will take care of the rest.
Taco and Ceviche Pop-Up with Guacamole contest is this Sunday May 31st at Diamond Bar (43 Franklin Street)
Did you know one of Greenpoint’s best bars is named in tribute of Van Halen? That’s right, The Diamond Bar is in fact an homage to “Diamond” David Lee Roth. But for owner Dave Pollack, it doesn’t end there. He also happens to front a Van Halen tribute band called Van Heusen. They’ll be playing Saturday night at Saint Vitus. Check out details about the show, the pre-party, and an interview with Dave on the band and his love for Van Halen. Continue reading →
Has anyone ever read Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs? It’s a kid’s book about the town of Chewandswallow. There, citizens don’t ever have to worry about stopping by a deli for milk or scouring blogs for the sexiest place to eat dinner out because their food quite literally falls from the sky. Four square meals a day come in the form of weather fronts that move through the community at a predictable pace, until one day the forecast turns on them. The food becomes inedible and the people are forced to make a mass exodus on boats constructed from stale bread. Continue reading →
