One-Year Aged Beer Event at Aviary; New Chef Coming to Epic; More

WEST LOOP—The Aviary is going all-out for their first beer collaboration. They poured 10 extremely rare brews inside 10 upper-quality liquor barrels (including Pierre Ferrand Selection des Anges and Elijah Craig 12 Year) and let them age for over a year. The result is a flight tasting with food on Tuesday for $95, email for a possible seat. [EaterWire]

RIVER NORTHMark Pollard is no longer the chef at Epic and is now in L.A. Apparently he'll be back to start another project. [312DD]

ANDERSONVILLE—What better place to host a Southern-themed cookbook dinner than Big Jones? It's five courses for $100, featuring dishes from "The Lee Bros. Charleston Kitchen" like kumquat champagne sparklers; deviled crab; grapefruit chess pie; call (773)275-5725 for reservations. [EaterWire]

TWITTERLAND—What, the Siena Tavern meatball has a Twitter feed? It's true, and features gems like "Don't wanna brag, but I get hit on, a lot. WAY more than @fabioviviani." The end is near. [Twitter]
