Monday Beer Dinners: Lickinghole Creek At Southbound and Hardywood At Graffiato

Does anyone really like to cook on a Monday? I know I don’t. Especially, if what I planned for Sunday was very involved. Plus, you had one of those Mondays; you know the ones where everything goes wrong. Maybe take this Monday March 16th off and head out to a beer dinner or two.

Lickinghole Creek Cask Pin Dinner at Southbound — 6PM

UPDATE: Southbound was not able to sell enough tickets to host this dinner. The pins will be tapped at a later date.

Southbound has the makings of a hit dinner on its hands here. Three cask conditioned pins each paired with three small plate items. These are unique creations you will not see anywhere else. You will normally only see one cask beer at a dinner due to how much they cost the restaurant. This is a rare treat. Don’t sleep on this and miss out.

The cost for the dinner is $50/person.  Contact the restaurant to reserve your spot.
