Pages: 1 2 3 4

By Grace Sell

 

Whether single, in a relationship, or “it’s complicated” – we were all struck by Cupid’s arrow the moment we tasted our first heartbreakingly-good craft beer. Here at The Growler, we may not be the most romantic kids on the block, but we do know love when we see it – just like we know a good beer when we taste it. So love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and we have put together a list of 14 dinners, gifts, beers, performances to help you tolerate the week. Many of the events include beer, but not all.

LocavoreLoveAffairChowgirls Killer Catering is opening the doors to their Parlor in Northeast Minneapolis and inviting you and your Valentine in for their Locavore Love Affair prix-fixe four course dinner. Made with locally available, organic, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients.

Start out the night with appetizers, which include a shot of velvety butternut squash bisque followed by a delicate Massachusetts sea scallop with sour cherries and fried shallot atop a parsnip puree. The salad course will be a kale chiffonade studded with blood orange and toasted almonds in a citrus-white balsamic vinaigrette. For entrees, guests can choose between Grassfed Osso Bucco — a marrow-filled bone-in beef shank served with a red-wine demi glace sauce, or Arctic Char — a firm yet delicate, grilled cold-water fish served with a Pernod Buerre Blanc. Vegetarians can opt for a torte of seasonal vegetable and Servecchio Parmesan. All entrees will be served with organic creamy grits and roasted seasonal vegetables. For dessert, diners will be treated with an individual Meyer lemon pie and two perfect Rare Rose honey bon-bons.
