Weekend: A Good Weekend To Imbibe


It’s Friday the Firkinteenth at Grey Lodge. Go forth and enjoy what’s still pouring of the twenty-five beers they started the day with.

At City Tap House $35 will get you a four-course New York inspired menu paired with popular Ithaca Brewing beers.



It’s the second Saturday of the month and that means a special beer event at Nodding Head Brewery. Tomorrow it is the Ice Capades, five types of iced Nodding Head beers available. All will be well over 10% alcohol by volume, so be careful. The event starts at 3 p.m.

This weekend marks the first opportunity to get a second round of fried chicken at Federal Donuts.


Mambo Brunch brings Afro-Carribean dance music to your morning meal at Johnny Brenda’s. The kitchen will be turning out some Puerto Rican specials like Pernil & Eggs, Chicharron and Tostones too.

In Riva begins brunch service this weekend. In addition to the pizzas and Mommy’s Meatballs from the regular menu, Italian breakfast dishes like Tostato Francese (cinnamon battered french toast with Nutella and caramelized bananas), Bacala (salt cod, fried eggs and tapenade) and Frittata Romana (roasted tomato, spinach and goat cheese) will be offered.
