Upcoming beer and food pairing dinner at Christopher's World Grille

I really wish I had the budget for this.  Alas it's not meant to be.  At least not this year.  Perhaps the next time they do something this awesome I'll have a job that pays more than a grad student stipend. 

Anyways, Christopher's World Grille is one of a handful of Bryan/College Station fine dining establishments.  It has its loyal following in addition to haters.  But I have found them to be consistently awesome.  They cook a beautiful steak to order and occassionally have things like soft crabs and a mixed wild game plate. We go there only for special occasions. While the prices would be "not that bad" in a major city, they are just out of reach for us to go there regularly.

Next weekend, on Saturday, July 28th they are having a British Pub Style dining experience, paired with "proper" British ales.  Here's the menu, copied and pasted from the email they sent out to fans:

Doesn't that sound absolutely divine?  If you're interested in attending, make reservations ASAP by calling Christopher's World Grille directly, email them (address at the link), or visit them in person. Contact info.  Website reservations are not accepted for special events.  I imagine they'll sell out.

If you're like me and unable to afford this but would still like some awesome beer New Republic Brewery will be hosting a brewery tour the same night. $6 gets you a really cool pint glass and two tastings. There's usually a band.

Please bring a designated driver if you attend either event.
