Culture Spoon Weekend Picks

Sorry for the hiatus readers! I spent most of October moving into a new house and prepping for upcoming commercial photo shoots. I may have missed out on Halloween festivities, but I plan on celebrating Dia de los Muertos right.

Tonight you can catch Grupo Fantasma and DJ Steven Lee Moya playing at Sam’s Burger Joint.  Bonus points if you can dance while eating a burger. Be sure to buy tickets here.

The Meatopia Festival also kicks off this weekend at the Pearl Brewery!  You can still purchase Sunday tickets here. The festival, headed by food writer Josh Ozersky, will feature 32 of the best chefs in the country, and celebrate meat the way it is meant to be enjoyed- in large amounts, cooked over wood fires. I’m dreaming of BBQ already.

Keep the weekend classy with NAO at the Pearl Brewery, and make sure to try their delicious Dia de los Muertos cocktail. I’ve included the recipe below!

“Raising The Dead” NAO’s Dia de los Muertos Cocktail
3/4 oz Reposado Tequila
3/4 oz Lillet Blanc
1/2 oz Pierre Ferrand Orange liqueur
3/4 oz Orange juice
1/4 oz Lime Juice
Pour Ingredients into a shaker tin. Add ice; shake and strain into a frozen coupe glass. Finish the cocktail with 3 to 4 drops of absinthe. Garnish with two Maraschino cherries on a bamboo skewer.


Hope to see you at the Pearl this weekend. Happy Dia de los Muertos, and Happy Eating!
