Evening of Mischief
Fatty Crab UWS
Monday, October 18 at 9 p.m.
Add a little sex and scare to your supper with this ghoulishly themed evening of burlesque, hosted by Bastard Keith and the Sophisticates. There will be titillating entertainment, Victorian parlour games, and hot and spicy treats, including crab salad with broccoli, cured lemon, chili, palm sugar, and herbs; and a Flatiron Steak with lovage salsa verde and crispy potato. An open bar during the show is sure to lubricate you for the night.
Seasonal Restaurant & Weinbar
Chef Wolfgang Ban and Eduard Frauneder invite you to experience their upscale version of Octoberbest with a $95 five-course menu of modern Austrian dishes, each paired with a Radeberger beer. Start with smoked walleye pike paired with Berliner Weisse, followed by veal sweetbreads and Hövels Hausbrauerei, pork sausage with Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen, and duck breast with Einbecker Urbock. Prost, indeed.
