Beginning on October 22nd Supper will be hosting “Happy Hour Happynings” on every fourth Wednesday of the month, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
So what the hell is a “Happyning,” you ask? Kind of like a guided, themed happy hour. And this month’s theme features one of the world’s greatest culinary creations: cheese.
The “Cheese 101″ happy hour will be hosted at the restaurant by chef/owner Mitch Prensky and Whole Foods Market’s cheese guru Mike Coffey. For $15 per person, the duo will show you how to put together the perfect cheese board, discuss cheese myths, and supply you with samples of favored cheese from the Whole Foods board, with accompaniments.
And this being happy hour, of course there will be happy-hour-priced cocktails, beers and wines for your pairing pleasure.
Today, Wishbone at 4034 Walnut Street is hosting a “Sudden Death” hot wing eating contest at 5 p.m. Ten challengers will take on the defending champion, Don. The winner walks away with $1,000 in Wishbone food.
And as Wishbone says, “milk is for quitters.”
