Outside of a good Filipino home, authentic Filipino food is hard to find. That's why this four-courser of Shrimp Sinigang, Chicken Adobo, Braised Oxtail and Panghimagas—is worth checking out. Just don't try to pronounce that last one.
Things to do for July 23, 2009
Bacon Tater Tots, Japanese Brews and Lots of Schnitzel
The weekend is in a fog.
Half-off drafts like Deschutes amber ale and Trumer go especially well with $3 Hobbs Bacon Tater Tots, Oyster Shooters and Malt Salt-Sprinkled Fries, as well as $5 Juicy Lucy Cheeseburgers and Smoked Ham Mac ‘n' Cheese. So good in fact, that we'll see you at the bar.
Japanese Craft Beer Tasting
When you think about drinking and Japan, sake immediately comes to mind. But after Friday's beer tasting featuring the Hitachino lineup (including Red Rice Ale and Espresso Stout), as well as ales crafted by an American brewer from the foot of Mt. Fuji, you'll think beer. Or at least sake and beer.
Two months after opening, Schmidt's got its liquor license and can finally call themselves a bierhaus. So now, you can come in when the sun goes down and run through their ever-expanding German beer list, along with schnitzels and brats. Or, come in for lunch and stay for dinner.
Wine tasting in Napa is a given, which is why an afternoon exploring the rooms and grounds of Ma(i)sonry and admiring the latest collection of paintings from Robert Mondavi's granddaughter is just the thing to shake things up. Wine will be served, naturally.
