Hash Over: Corn Dog Throwdown, Sevy's Wine Dinner And Free Subs For Charity
At least two City of Ate contributors plan to celebrate Independence Day on Saturday the way our forefathers would have wanted: by throwing down (and hopefully not up) at The Libertine Bar's Brass Knuckle Corn Dog Beatdown. The 15-minute bout, limited to 25
gluttonous idiots brave gurgitators, will award the top three finishers with a $100 bar tab, a $50 bar tab and $25 in quarters respectively.
The competition begins at 7 p.m. The intra-City of Ate bet has not been set, but suggestions are welcome.
Also going on this week:
Sevy's June Food and Wine Dinner is at 6:30 p.m. today with the theme "Summer Evening In New England." The four-course dinner plus reception includes maple-glazed venison roast, jumbo sea scallops, a Maine lobster roll and more, with each dish paired to a complementary wine. Cost per person is $59.95 plus tax and tip. Reservations (required) are at 214-265-7389.
Jersey Mike's will have the grand opening for its ninth Dallas-area store (5301 W. Lovers Lane) Wednesday. With a fund-raising coupon (which are available in newspapers and are being distributed throughout the area), customers can receive a free regular sub with a one-dollar donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. They don't serve corn dogs, but it sounds like a good cause anyway.
