Let’s talk chicken, Philipino chicken to be precise. Marinated in garlic, vinegar, and the citrus fruit calamansi for tang, then grilled up. Atchara, sweet pickled papaya, is a thing. And if you like your rice topped with crispy garlic, well, this RC is your jam.

Still not convinced? Then talk to to this guy.

We’re combining worlds here and hosting the SOME DAYS beer group, which many of you are a part of, so there will be plenty of world class beers brought that need dranking. We’ll also be coming back to our place (5 minute drive) to continue the beer nerdery and you’re invited!

One of their “things” is called a Boodle Fight, where the entire table is covered in banana leaves and food and the group goes to town on about 10 different items for $25 a person, so if that’s something you’re into, please let me know by Wednesday at 7pm as that’s the deadline for ordering. I can still take RSVP’s up until Thursday at noon.

In the middle of winter, I’m craving some hearty Eastern European food. This place has been on my radar for a while (and comes recommended by a friend), but I haven’t yet had the pleasure of dining there. Join me for goulash, pierogis, borscht, and other regional delights (including Ukrainian beer and wine).

Please RSVP by Friday at noon.

I was supposed to go here last night and I didn’t end up going so now I’d like to go this Friday. The craftails and menu look tasty and there’s a pommel horse in the dining room…color me intrigued! Wish it was warm enough to enjoy the patio, but we can check it out to see if it’s worth coming back to in the summer. I have a tentative reservation – please let me know by Thursday if you can join Chris and me at Park & Field. The details are above.

If you make it through the arctic blast, you’re gonna need some hot Pho this Friday…or one of the 100s of tasty things on Tank’s menu. I’m sorry to say I haven’t been here in a while. But it never disappoints. I wish I could say I was going to get the best thing I’ve ever had here again, but I can’t. The waiter misunderstood my order and brought me something else…which was INCREDIBLE. Unfortunately the language barrier was too great. I never figured out what that amazing dish was. Maybe someday I will…maybe this Friday. Let me know if you can make it by noon on Friday.
