Cookies & Beer III is here. Yup, we added Roman numerals up in this piece. The event that became a cookbook is once again an event just as Mufasa foretold.
The limited edition portion (Cookies & Beer Ice Cream sandwiches from Dolce Bakery/Glace Artisan Ice Cream) of the event is, alas, sold out, but we’ll still be bringing cookies and pairing recommendations. Come try Thin Mints (all proceeds of those chocolate peppermint delights benefit a local Girl Scouts troop), Brown Butter Chocolate Chip or Ginger Molasses cookies. Cookies & Beer III is from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Bier Station.
It’s First Friday at Farm to Market (100 E 20th Street) and they’ll have a tasting of a limited edition bread inspired by the beer from Crane Brewing Company. They’ll be talking beer and bread from 5 to 9 p.m. tonight in their Crossroads space.
Tickets for the 2016 Kansas Craft Brewers Expo are sold out, but you can still get in to ‘That Dam Beer Event’ tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. at Abe & Jake’s Landing in Lawrence. Consider it a mini-beer festival with 50 brews (Evil Twin, Lost Coast, Against the Grain, and Off Color Brewing, among them) and food from Merchants Pub + Plate (crispy fried mussels, banh mi crostini). Tickets are $50. The Burger Stand at The Casbah (803 Massachusetts) is also holding their 2nd annual Craft Beer Mixer from 6 to 10 p.m. in their Beer Hall tonight. The event will feature 10 regional breweries, including Tallgrass Brewing Company’s Sweet Tooth Salted Caramel Belgian Dark.
The Breakfast for Dinner Late Night Happy Hour kicks off at Cleaver & Cork tonight at 10 p.m. Read about it in our recent piece covering the trend of how we as a society now crave egg sandwiches all day and night.
There’s a Food Truck Crawl Saturday in the West Bottoms. The event, hosted by The Mid-Continent Library’s Business of Food Trucks, kicks off at Hickory Dickory (1107 Hickory Street) at 10:30 a.m. and includes a map to Cheeesy Pops’ Pizza, Beauty of the Bistro, Crave and Monk’s Roast Beef. It’s pay as you go, but they’re asking for a $2 donation to cover the cost of map printing.
A pair of local joints turn two years old this weekend. The Bite (23 E 3rd Street) will let you literally pig out Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. They’re offering all you can eat roast pork for $15, along with music from Enrique and Diego Chi from Making Movies. The Westport Ale House (4128 Broadway Road) is hosting a party Sunday. Give $5 to the KC Pet Project and get a wristband for a free snack buffet (12 to 2 p.m.) along with 2-for-1 Boulevard pints (12 to 4 p.m.).[Images via Facebook: The Bite, Westport Ale House, Farm to Market, Burger Stand, Monk’s Roast Beef]
