Nosh Pit Weekly Planner: April 2-8

Nosh Pit Weekly Planner: April 2-8

Mezcaleria Oaxaca Capitol Hill

Raw Dinner at Tilth
Chef Maria Hines will be serving up a six-course dinner at Tilth, displaying the benefits of raw food, and describing some techniques for raw cooking. The meal will cost $95 per person, or $140 with (also raw) wine pairings. An hors d’oeuvres reception will begin at 6 p.m. Call 206-633-0801 for a reservation, but do it fast — only 50 seats are available. 


Plate of Nations
Saturday is your last chance to get a $15 lunch or $25 dinner for two at participating Beacon Hill restaurants. Be sure to print out a “passport” on the Plate of Nations website to get stamped as you eat — eleven stamps could win you a private cooking class and lunch with Jose-Luis Pantigas of Huarachitos Cocina Mexicana (incidentally, the $25 dinner of chicken mole crepes sounds pretty outstanding). 

Table Top Day at Backdoor at Roxy’s
This speakeasy bar in Fremont will be hosting a board game night in honor of International Table Top Day. Which is apparently a real thing. Promotional materials promise that “board games have come so, so far from Monopoly and Scrabble,” but taking Park Place while nursing a French 75 still sounds pretty good to us. Be sure to make a reservation, and the event will run from 5 to 9pm.

SUNDAY, April 6

Game of Thrones Viewing Parties
The show returns for a fourth season, and these two local bars are ready with viewing parties, Westeros-themed cocktails, and an actual iron throne. 

TUESDAY, April 8

Mezcaloteca Tasting Event at Mezcaleria Oaxaca
Expert mezcalera Andrea Hagan will be hosting a tasting at Capitol Hill’s new Mezcaleria Oaxaca. Light snacks will be provided to soak up all that artisan mezcal. Tasting sessions will take place from 4-6 p.m. on both days. Each $50 session is limited to 24 people, so email mezcaleriaoaxaca@gmail.com to reserve a spot.
