Three Local Dinner Events to Make You Drool a Tiny Bit this Fortnight

dirck_and_taxes_greenpointNow that it’s light in the evenings and actually fairly pleasant out, it’s finally time to contemplate doing fun things again. Just to ease you back into the swing of things, here’s info on three local dinner events that are worth staying out for over the next couple of weeks:

1. Dirck and Taxes

Done and dusted with your tax return? Pre-emptively spend your rebate on this five-course dinner at Dirck the Norseman (who celebrated their 1st Birthday yesterday…happy beer-day Dirck!). The evening starts with a brewery tour to help you work up an appetite, then diners sit down to enjoy five robust courses (menu above) each paired with a different delicious brew from Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co. The meat-heavy menu isn’t so great for veggies, but beer-loving carnivores will be in seventh heaven!

When: Tuesday April 14th, 7pm
Where: Dirck the Norseman (7 N 15th Street)
Price: $65
Reservations: Tickets can be bought HERE Continue reading

Say Farewell to Winter with this ‘Before Spring’ Beer-Pairing Dinner at Le Fond (03/11)

However, the good folks at Le Fond are realistic with their expectations of the seasons and next week will be hosting a one-off pairing dinner sensibly titled ‘Avant le Printemps’ or (as Richard Linklater might say) ‘Before Spring’.

Chef Jake Eberle is teaming up with Greenpoint Beer & Ale Company to present a delicious five-course rustic modern dinner where each plate is carefully paired with a different local brew. Continue reading
