The Libertine Bar sent along details about its December 29 holiday beer dinner, as well as a pair of tickets for one lucky City of Ate reader.
Or rather, for the purposes of this contest, "one unlucky City of Ate reader" would be more accurate. Winning the tickets would be fortunate, but it will actually be something of a consolation prize for your worst holiday memory. See contest details after the jump and you'll understand.
The dinner features five Christmas and holiday beers along with five holiday dishes from around the world. After the jump you'll find the full lineup of beers as well as the menu, and an explanation of how you can win them while giving our new commenting system a workout.
This month's beer dinner is set for 7 p.m. next Wednesday, December 29, and features the following:
First Course: Calamari Salad (Italy).
Second Course: Green Curry with Shrimp & Eggplant (Thailand)
Third Course: Pork Pozole (Mexico)
Fourth Course: Cordero Asado -- Roasted Leg of Lamb (Spain)
Fifth Course: Buche de Noel (France)
Paired with: Saint Arnold Christmas Ale, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Harpoon Winter Warmer, Anchor Christmas and Delerium Noel.
Tickets are $50 per person plus tax. Reservations are required and available at 214-824-7900 or at the bar.
Or you can try winning them by sharing your most unfortunate holiday story below in the comments. It can be funny, pathetic, gross or involve the most excruciating hangover of your life. We're not necessarily looking for the most tragic story, just one that gives us a laugh and makes us say, "Man, they really deserve a beer after all that." And it doesn't matter what holiday -- Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve...heck, it could be Bastille Day, if it's a good enough story.
But get right on it. Contest ends at
5 p.m. Wednesday, December 22.
Update: We're extending this till midnight tonight. Winner will be announced tomorrow.
