Beer Pairing Dinner
The Vanderbilt

Sixpoint Brewery is celebrating its sixth birthday with a special beer-pairing dinner. The $50 four-course nose-to-tail pig menu features flash-fried pig tails confit with Diesel Stout, rolled and smoked pig’s head with Coffee Bock, braised pork shoulder with Belgian Rye, and flaky winter fruit tart with Sweet Reaction. And you even get a growler to take home.

Chinese New Year

Celebrate Chinese New Year with a Macanese twist. Chef Josh Blakely will serve up a family-style menu of lucky scallop and bone marrow dumplings with the plum sugar-sweetened Indonesian sauce called Kecap Manis ($13), super slow-roasted suckling pig ($40 for two), raw oysters on the half-shell, and pea shoot sofrito.

Super Bowl Sunday

Support your team this Super Bowl Sunday with $12 buckets of PBR (five bottles in each) alongside the regular menu by chef Will Sullivan.
