If you woke up with the taste of barbecue and beer still in your mouth, you did America proud this weekend. The fun doesn't stop just because it's Monday, though it does give you a bit of a break. You can learn to make some healthy salads in mason jars if you so happen to swing by Whole Food downtown tonight. Then it's right back to drinking on Tuesday at Seagrape's new social hour and barbecue (pizza) on Wednesday with the Dutch's Bourbon, Beer, and Cue annual celebration. Close out the work week with Dinnerlab and the chef from Nomad New York.
Week starts now.
Salad Making at Whole Foods
Have you always wanted to learn to make salads in mason jars? Well, today is your lucky day because that's exactly the topic of Whole Foods downtown's Chat & Chew series. Every month, Whole Foods' healthy eating and green mission specialist Genesis offers up store tours, demos, classes, lectures and more to get you excited about eating healthy. And tonight from 6 to 8 p.m., if you drop by the healthy eating station, you'll learn how to make a salad. In a mason jar.
Social Hour at Seagrape
When the clock strikes 5 o'clock, you want to be drinking vino somewhere. Just in: Seagrape has started a social hour where you can do just that in the retro lounge of Michelle Bernstein's Florida brasserie. From 5 to 7 p.m., imbibe on handcrafted libations or a glass of wine for $7 and local brews for $5. Pair any of the aforementioned with some uni toast and coriander roasted beets.
Bourbon, Beer, and Cue at the Dutch
The Dutch is back with their summer installment of Bourbon, Beer, and Cue in which a chef de cuisine invites a series of chefs every week to whip up some good ol' barbecue in the enchanting backyard of the W. On the roster this week are Matt DePante and Justin Flit from Proof Pizza and Pasta. We know what you're thinking: those guys make pizza and pasta. Yes, so think barbecue pizza and other wonderful things like desserts to match (for sure some kind of pie) from pastry chef Josh Gripper, bourbon-based cocktails (last week there was bacon old fashioned), and local brews. There's also corn hole, beer pong, and other drinking games while you eat. Tickets cost $40 including tax and gratuity. Bourbon and beer is additional. Fun starts at 7 p.m. Pro tip: wear shorts.
