Chef Kelly Sears presents School’s Out: Block Party! (Hands On)

School’s out and full-blown summer is on the way. Straight from the bottle, or mixed as a cocktail, we’re focusing on beer-forward beverages and pairing them with a vibrant menu of backyard bites. Tonight’s block party menu puts a spin on traditional sips and nibbles to form a union of flavors perfect for the coming warm summer nights.

On the menu: 
  • Beer Cocktails: Tom Terrific, Sangria Brew, and the Bad Idea
  • Peanut Drinking Snacks, Watermelon Bites with Lemon, Mint, and Goat Cheese, Strawberry Caprese Salad, 
  • Burger Duo: Pimento Cheeseburgers with Bacon Jam and Spicy Pork Burgers with Spicy Bourbon Mustard, Deviled Potatoes, and Warm Snickerdoodle Bars with Vanilla Ice Cream
