Food and beverage pairing dinners are great because you get to sample an interesting assortment of a restaurant's dishes and sip expertly paired cocktails, beer or wine all for one price. Often, the price is a little too spendy (in the $50 to $80 range) especially on a weekday. The upcoming BBQ Bourbon Dinner at Encore Liquid Lounge has all of the flavor without the high price tag.
BBQ ribs, Knob Creek tastings and boozy bourbon ice cream make a fine end of summer celebration, On Whiskey Wednesday, August 28 at 7 p.m., Encore Liquid Lounge will be hosting a three-course BBQ Bourbon Dinner:
- First Course: Spring salad filled with fresh organic greens, plum tomatoes, asparagus, red onions, pine nuts, cranberry, and mozzarella, drizzled with house-made balsamic / Knob Creek pairing
- Second Course: half or whole slab of ribs slathered with Knob Creek-infused BBQ sauce, creamy slaw and jalapeno corn bread / Knob Creek Rye pairing
- ·Third Course: German chocolate cake doused with house-made Knob Creek Single Barrel infused ice cream / Knob Creek Single Barrel paining
A representative from Jim Beam will also be present to explain each pairing. And because a BBQ isn’t complete without live music, The Josh Miller Trio will be singing jazzy tunes from 6-8 pm, as they do every Wednesday.
Reservations are only $30 per person, not inclusive of tax and gratuity. For reservations call: 312-338-3788.
