Valentine’s Day Mon. 2/14

Chef James Burden and Corkdork Caitlin Harrison couldn’t agree on what to do for Valentine’s Day.

James enjoys taking a break from the regular and mixing it up stylistically. Prix Fixe menus are a way he can really show his range and creativity. And believe me, he nailed this menu.

Caitlin enjoyed working in the past for a place that celebrated “Anti-Valentine’s Day”, a night of pure silliness where themes range from Chinese food and movies in a typically upscale space (pajamas were encouraged), to “Anti-Anti-Valentine’s Day Bash” where love was sickeningly all around. (She may have sold tickets for a kissing booth…)

So, the two thought, why choose? Lovers can have their early, deliciously put together evening, accompanied by the smooth sounds of the Wrba/Weiss 4tet. The rest of us? Well, crazy large format beers to share with a friend or future Valentine (just saying..) will be available, comfort food will be served, Wrba/Weiss will come back playing anti-love tunes and a possible showing of a “&%@! off love” movie. No cover, ’cause we love you.
