TONIGHT: Just a couple spots remain for Beer Table’s Chocolate and Beer tasting, where five brews meet five chocolates from Mast Brothers, whose creators will be on hand – with their beards! – to school you on the finer points of washing down an 81% cocoa blend with a robust Porter. 7–8:30pm at Beer Table, 427B Seventh Avenue at 14th Street, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 718-965-1196.
DEAL: Duck pissaladière, diver scallops, and hanger steak frites: This is the kind of stuff you’ll gorge on for pennies via Bar Artisanal’s new prix fixe lunch and brunch menus, which’ll run you $28 for any three courses or $21 for any two. [more]
SAVE THE DATE: It’s Oktoberfest in July! On Wednesday July 15, Edible Manhattan throws a big ol’ German biergarten bash on Inside Park’s terrace, complete with a full spread: house (haus?)-made sausages, smoked black cod, cheeses galore, and plenty of local beer to wash it all down with. 5:30-8:30PM.
