You'll like the newly refurbished bar, but the $4 salt cod beignets and Kronenbourg drafts, $5 Negroni cocktails and $1 oysters are what'll keep you coming back…daily, for four hours. It's a routine worth sticking to.
Things to do for April 30, 2009
Kickball, $1 Oysters and Whiskey-Aged Beer
The weekend is taking it to eleven.
You might've blinked and missed the Brick to Fly Bar transition. Rest assured they kept the Brick Burger on the menu and then added a new 35-bottle beer list and arcade room. Celebrate with a Dead Guy Ale growler and a few games of Galaga.
The guys at Ruby Wine are pouring five new '08 rosés, and the chefs at Slow Club and Serpentine are whipping up duck rillettes, house-made sausage flatbreads and fava bean crostini—all you have to do is eat and drink until they're gone.
What you'll like about this season opener for the adult version of the venerated schoolyard game is that cans of PBR outnumber bottles of water (they provide the beer, you BYOW) by a large margin. And the leggy uniforms on your coed teammates are icing on the cake.
Getting 40 percent off labels like Varvatos, Paul Smith, APC and Nice Collective is worth taking a long lunch on Monday—or, dare we suggest, getting to happy hour a bit late.
Kick off Monk's Kettle's first monthly beer dinner with a five-course surf and turf menu of salmon and short ribs paired with craft beers from Colorado's Oskar Blues—like a whiskey-aged double IPA. Then sign up for next month.
