Wednesday night is the perfect day of the week to start drinking, if you ask us. You've made it over the hump of the work week, and can probably make it through the next two days slightly hungover (Three cheers for 'Summer Fridays'). And while the summer may be winding down, there's still plenty of time to get out there and combine your drinking activities with some old fashioned summer fun.
Which is why we're all about the Crab Boil Pork Slope is throwing tonight. Starting at 5pm, patrons can chow down on all the makings of a classic Crab Boil: blue crabs, potatoes, sausage, and corn. $28 gets you six crabs; $54 gets you 12. This is classic summer fun if we've ever heard of it (though we're sure chef Dale Talde will find a way to put his spin on it). And if all goes well tonight, the folks at Pork Slope are hoping to keep this going every Wednesday night for the rest of the summer. (Please please please please pleaaaaaasse).
The Boil is also the first step in a slight menu-overhaul Dale Talde is bringing to Pork Slope. "We rotate items on the menu at Talde and Thistle Hill all the time," he told us last night. "But I haven't really played around with Pork Slope. I want to bring new items to the menu - seafood, BBQ, more pork - but do them the way I like to do them." From the twists on the traditional we've tasted at Talde's spots, we couldn't be more excited. (Though please Dale - don't get rid of the Irish Nachos. That's the food dreams are made of).
Who's joining us tonight?
