Memorial Day Beer & BBQ Blast at North One 10
North One 10 is holding its' Special Edition Memorial Day Beer & BBQ this Friday, Saturday and Sunday (May 22nd, 23rd and 24th) -- and like those years when Easter and Passover coincidentally occur on the same week, Dewey and Dale LoSasso's shindig falls precisely on the same weekend as the Memorial Day holiday! It's, like, almost destined to be a cool affair.
Hip factor aside, why should you shell out forty bucks, not inclusive of tax and gratuity, for what is essentially the cuisine of America's poor? And why should children under twelve be forced to fork over twenty smackeroos? Don't they realize how difficult it is for kids this age to scrape up that sort of dough?
Anyway, here are some reasons why the cost is quite reasonable: If you go as a group of four or more, the table will get tastings of chicken wings with guava/habanero glaze; grilled vegetable skewers; grilled shrimp skewers; angus short rib sloppy joes; citrus braised pork shoulder; lamb spare ribs with pomegranate BBQ sauce; lemon/sage-roasted Bell & Evans chicken; wok-charred salmon with black bean broth and kimchee aioli; grilled skirt steak; corn-on-the-cob; collard greens with berries and shallots; mac & cheese; banana pudding; apple cobbler; blueberry fritters; and a partridge in a pear tree (if you go as a group of three or less, you still get to choose multiple plates).
Actually, I think there's a ten dollar surcharge for the partridge -- and on Sunday, for the same ten-spot per person, you can add a Maine lobster supplement. I'm serious about the lobster.
A couple of more good reasons: The dinner price includes selected beers for adults, and a special selection of root beers and lemonade for the kiddos. Dinners take place 5:30 p.m. until 11:00 p.m., and will also be held every Friday throughout the summer. Except this one, as noted, is uniquely holiday-ish. Call to reserve:305-893-4211.
North One 10 will be resting on May 25th and 26th, and reopening for service on the 27th.
