Upcoming Wild Game Dinner at Ortino's Northside

Wild Game sure is getting tamed as of late. There'll be such a dinner during Philly Beer Week. Union Barrel Works hosted one last month. Somehow I wouldn't be surprised if the SAVOR event in D.C. this coming spring would do something along these lines too. (Oh yeah, and I make an award-winning venison chili, thanks for asking.) John, Dan, Sarah Rocks, and the rest of the Ortino's crew are ready to put out their take on Wild Game and pair it with their finest Belgian beer stash. Passed along by Mr. Bengel and hand-typed by yours truly (dude, thanks for the jpeg, ggrrr), here's the menu that just might get me driving up route 29 to Zieglerville in February. For those uninitiated, be sure to follow route 29 north through Zieglersville to get to Zieglerville ;-) Or just follow this map. The time is 5:30pm, the dress is casual, and seating is give 'em a call at 610-287-7272 and make a reservation. Happy Hour Buffet - Fire Roasted Pig stuffed with Venison Sausage glazed with Beer BBQ sauce with gourmet mustards and breads - Belgian cheese course served with an array of fresh fruits and crackers Salad Course - Pheasant Confit on top of Baby Greens with Celriac Candied Hazlenuts tossed with Raspberry Framboise Vinaigrette Entree Course - Beer Braised Buffalo Short Ribs, Barley Risotto, and Witte Kerke Sauteed Leeks, Turnips, and Brussel Sprouts Dessert Course - Gulden Draak Raisin and Plum Rice Pudding with Baked Drunken Apples

Sorry about that, that's why I sent you another one. I guess I will have to buy you a beer at Burn's night or Iron Hill Belgian night.

Now, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout ;-)
