Do you love scotch? Sevy's Grill will have a Scotch Club tasting this evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. featuring five premium whiskys and a complementary dish for each.
Dishes and drinks include crispy 5-spice duck cigars (sounds classier than "duck taquitos," no?) with apricot ginger dipping sauce with Dalmore 12 and ginger ale; prosciutto, ricotta and basil fritatta with Glenfiddich 12; Ahi tuna tartar with Glenfiddich 15; griddled buffalo small sandwiches (they use the disturbing "s" word) with Lagavulin 16; and Godiva chocolate creme brulee with Glenlivet 12 French Oak.
And, at $44.95 a person, it's cheaper than a lot of wine and even beer dinners in town. Here it goes. Down into your belly. Reservations (required) are available at 214-265-7389.
Also going on this week ...
Roy Williams will try to catch more passes tonight than Marvin Harrison caught all season in 2002. At a Frisco Pizza Hut (9550 Dallas Parkway), Williams will sign footballs ($5 donation for mini, $40 for regulation size) to raise funds for world hunger relief. If you've bought one of the signed balls, you can then throw it to him. Presumably he'll give it back. Kelly Buckley, chief food innovation officer (no, we did not make up that title) will also be on hand to lead diners through tastings of new WingStreet wing flavors.
Nana will feature Revana Family Vineyard wines beginning with a 7 p.m. reception Thursday. Dishes include seared sea scallops, duck breast, filet of beef and bleu cheese with pears. Vineyard owner Dr. Madaiah Revana will be on hand. Revana left a successful cardiology practice to create wines--so if you try the old fake-a-heart-attack-to-get-out-of-paying gag, it probably won't fly. Wouldn't blame you, though, as the cost is $200 (all-inclusive) per person. Reservations are at 214-761-7470.
This Saturday is the first-ever Taste Of Greenville, with more than 20 Greenville Avenue-area restaurants--didn't know there were that many left--offering appetizer-sized portions of their favorite dishes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the parking lot of the Granada Theater. Bands will include the Cas Haley trio, King Bucks, Max Stalling, Johnny Lloyd Rollins and more.
