When: Wednesday, Dec. 7, 6 p.m.
The rundown: By popular demand from everyone (except vegetarians, people with high cholesterol, and cows), Brisketfest is back. The organizers say the sequel will be bigger, badder, and hungrier than ever. Jablow's Meats will offer a New York Pastrami on Rye, Slow Hand BBQ will have Texas BBQ Brisket Sandwich, and Nute's Cupcakes will serve up the traditional Thai Panang Brisket Curry over Rice.
There will also be special sodas on tap, including Smoked Apple Cider Soda, and Xtra Dry Ginger Ale. They're also working with the Shotwell's team to bring you special beer and soda cocktails too, including pairing the smoked apple cider soda with a chocolate stout, and matching the ginger ale with sake, as well as in a hoppy ginger IPA shandy.
