Dock Street is throwing a party tonight for their first Dock Street Spirits brand, Vicio mezcal, and they’re doing it at Alla Spina.
Vicio is their first “exploratory” spirit, described as a smokey agave liquor. It will be paired with a special Alla Spina menu of Italian bar snacks, and there’ll also be a featured beer cocktail, combining Vicio Mezcal and Dock Street’s Caliente Golden Ale, brewed with agave and chile peppers. The tasting begins at 4:30 p.m. and ends at 7 p.m.

This Saturday, July 19th, the 3rd Annual Dog Days of Summer Cook-Off is back and bigger than ever. Last year’s event featured 11 restaurants and food trucks, and this year’s will feature 20. The judges’ decision will be much more difficult and as a visitor, your stomach will be much more full.
Starting at 1 p.m., guests are welcome to sample the hot dogs, enjoy craft beer from Victory Brewing Company, jam out to live music and even vote for their favorite dog of the day. General admission is free, but food/drinks tickets cost $10 for 4 and $30 for 15. Or, if you’re looking for that VIP treatment, spend $30 and get early access at noon, a VIP gift, and 20 food/drink tickets. Proceeds will go to the preservation of the Headhouse Square Shambles.

We celebrated our 25th Open Stove event last night, and the festivities started off with Jason saying, “I’m going to do everything in my power to piss off Lily tonight.”
Now, the Open Stoves previous to last night's have all been very fun and exciting--the talent was always there, and everyone was guaranteed to leave feeling full, drunk, and satisfied. But last night, something was different. Maybe there was something in the water.
Or maybe it was all the vodka...
