UPDATE: Now I think this is sort of humorous, but I don’t think the person who sent me the press release does.
The beer dinner tomorrow actually will have BRISKET tamales. Not cricket tamales. Even though eating cricket and other insects is a thing, that’s not happening at this dinner.
The culprit? iPhone autocorrect.
It seems like the perfect place for a beer dinner, and on Wednesday, they’re having one.
The dinner, put on by Boulevard Brewing Company, will be at 6 p.m. and will feature a four-course meal, each course paired with a beer from Boulevard’s Smokestack Series line of artisan beers. A beer rep will be on hand to talk about each beer. (Take note: The third course includes a cricket tamale.)
Tickets are $30 a person and are available at the restaurant. For more information, call 316-263-4044.
Meanwhile, here’s the menu:
First course: Long Strange Tripel paired with endive, cornbread croutons, asiago and Mayfair dressing
Second course: Double-Wide I.P.A. paired with cricket tamale, dirty rice and tomatillo salsa
Third course: Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale paired with rosemary pork loin stuffed with fig and brie, curry whipped sweet potato and haricot vert
Fourth course: Dark Truth Stout paired with Mexican chocolate, espresso creme cheesecake
