Who says snooty foodies can't find good eats around T-Town? Well, you can. And I should know, because I happen to be a snooty foodie myself.
My picks for the next couple of weeks include:
Crab Boil and Beer Tasting at The Canebrake
When: Friday, May 21, 5:30-9:00pm
Where: The Canebrake, 33241 E. 732nd Road in Wagoner
Check out the patio at The Canebrake and a tasting of four beers from 5:30-7pm and all-you-care-to-eat seafood buffet from 6-9pm. The buffet includes a New England Clam Chowder Soup, salads like Green Bean, Feta and Walnuts with Roasted Shallot Dressing and Maine Potato Salad with Boiled Eggs and Pickles, apps like Limed Shrimp and Melon Skewers and Spring Onion and Wild Mushroom Canape, desserts that cover an array of the pasty chef's finest sweets and, of course, the boil: Blue Hill Boil with Peekytoe Crabs, Fresh Corn and Dill, New Potatoes and Canebrake Kicked-Up Crawfish. Beers up for tasting are Dixie, Fuller, Stegmeier and Triple Karmeleit. No need to worry if it rains - if that happens, the buffet will simply move inside. Tickets are $50, which includes tax and tip. Call (918) 485-1810 for reservations.
BBQ on the Bluff at Stone Bluff Cellars
When: June 5, 11am-3pm
Where: Stone Bluff Cellars, 24145 E. 191st St. South in Haskell
The chefs of Silver Spoon Catering will be providing the food for this kickoff to summer at the winery. Check out an evening performance that will feature Autumn Boukadakis. Appetizers and snacks will be provided by Jim's "Never on Sunday" Coney Island - you know, the one you've always driven past at 11th and Harvard and wondered about. Tickets are $10. Call (918) 495-1810 for reservations.
