This Week At Sidecar: BBQ Wings And Boozy Beers

Wing Thing Sidecar

Tonight, “Wing Thing” is back at Sidecar. The Chef: Adan Trinidad of Jose and Sancho Pistolas. His wings: Black Garlic Mole Negro BBQ Wings with a Jasper Hill Blue Cheese Crema.

Sure that sounds pretty good, but did you hear about our wing collaboration with Sidecar a couple months back? Chef Trinidad’s got some big shoes to fill if we do say so ourselves.

The wings will be offered until they sell out, usually in four or five days.

Also on tap at Sidecar: really strong beers. Join them tomorrow, Wednesday, July 15th for High Gravity Night. The lineup looks like it could do some serious damage.

I Have Three Words For You: Bone. Marrow. Nachos.

MarrowNachosSanchoPistolasYup. Those are bone marrow nachos. And they’re on the board at Sancho Pistola’s. Honestly, I can’t believe that every restaurant like Sancho’s isn’t serving these. But then, there’s not really another restaurant out there quite like Sancho’s.

You should totally go there tonight. And eat bone marrow nachos.

Where We’re Eating: Sancho Pistola’s

sancho pistolasIt would be worth visiting Joe Gunn, Casey Parker and Adan Trinidad’s sequel to Jose Pistola’s purely to read the beer menu. The Pabst Blue Ribbon is described as “Frank Booth’s favorite. F’ Heineken.” The Allagash White is a “way worse dancer than Allagash Black.” It’s a fun list to read, and indicative of the time you can have at Sancho Pistola’s even if you skip the beer list entirely and settle in with a margarita or smoked piña colada. But Sancho’s isn’t just a place to drink; Trinidad is putting out serious food. The tacos that make up half the menu are a good place to start; they’re broken up by land and sea. On land, the spicy pork tacos are on point; on the sea side, you can’t go wrong with tuna — or, expand your taco horizons with the scallop version. Trinidad is at his best with sea creatures, and nowhere more so than the whole fish. Wash it down with a Berber stout, which, according to the beer menu, is a “dark gift from Mexico, like Adan.”
