It's Big Star's first anniversary today and you're invited to join the celebration tonight. They're hosting a party featuring a three-course prix-fixe menu that will include beer pairings, one of which will be, Deguello, the special anniversary ale they created with Goose Island.
The $30 prix-fixe menu will include:
· First Course: Barbo en hoja de banana (marinated catfish in banana leaf with kuri squash escabeche) with Goose Island Sofie
· Second Course: Pollo frito en mole (fried chicken with red mole, scallions, queso fresco and toasted pumpkin seeds) paired with Deguello
· Third Course: Pibichivo (braised goat baked in masa with slow-cooked garbanzos and marinated chiles de agua) with a surprise Goose Island pairing.
The party starts at 8 p.m. and to get things really in a honky tonk kinda mood, Chicago musician John Langford will be playing a live set. Reservations are not required; in fact, they don't take 'em so go get in line now. Sip on a margarita, or two, while you wait.
