Tomorrow is King's Day in Belgium. Somewhat coincidentally, it's also the 30th anniversary celebration of Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield's beer importing business of mostly Belgian beer called Vanberg & Dewulf. They also have a hand in opening Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY back in 1997.
Hundreds of establishments across the country are lining up to help celebrate with an event called Coast to Coast Toast.
Take a moment to check out their website to see how you can participate, at a bar or at home. In the Philadelphia area, Monk's Café, The Belgian Café, Eulogy, Tria, and Teresa's Next Door will all be participating to some degree. Check out their respective websites, or call, for specific details.
While you're at Vanberg & Dewulf's website, be sure to catch Lew Bryson's fine background story painting the 30 year history of the business.
I, most likely, will be indulging at home with a suggested recipe for Tartine au Fromage Frais with Radish, Scallion & Chervil from their website and a bottle or two of Saison Dupont from '07.
