BOW & TRUSS GETS ITS “GAME” ON
FOR OMMEGANG BREWING NIGHT NOVEMBER 12
Evening Features Feast Fit for Knights, Kings and Carnivores;
Game of Thrones® Inspired Beer;
“Whole Animal” Night with whole Suckling Pig, Fish, Duckling and Rabbit!
Los Angeles, CA (October 15, 2013)--Knitting Factory Entertainment’s Bow & Truss is supplementing their traditional pan-Latin cuisine on Tuesday, November 12th to serve fare in the style of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros in honor of Ommegang Brewing Night. The “whole foods” dinner will feature a meal of kingly proportions as well as a special pouring of Ommegang’s “Take the Black Stout,” a hearty brew inspired by HBO’S smash hit TV show Game of Thrones®. Bow & Truss is located in the center of North Hollywood’s Arts District at 11122 Magnolia Blvd. North Hollywood, CA 91601.
Take the Black Stout is the newest beer in the Game of Thrones collaboration series. Inspired by the brotherhood of the Night’s Watch, Take the Black Stout was made to be deep, dark and complex like those who have sworn the oath to defend Westeros against threats from the north. The label depicts the Weirwood tree where Jon Snow recited the oath before joining the Night’s Watch. For more info on the beer check out:http://www.ommegang.com/got/take_the_black.php
Executive chef Stefhanie Meyers will be serving a menu—not for the timid or squeamish—to accompany the heady brew consisting of roasted whole suckling pig, a whole cobia fish, whole stuffed rabbits (which will be split open to display to reveal the roasted vegetables inside of belly), and whole roasted duck. Of course, it wouldn’t be a true medieval dining experience without the requisite vegetables surrounding the main courses: smoked artichokes, smoked baby red potatoes, charred onion, charred tomato, and twice fried carrots will accompanying the meats and fish.
“As a big Game of Thrones fan and an admirer of all things sword and sorcery, (especially a hefty, old-style stout), I am beyond excited for the Ommegang Brewing Night,” says Bow & Truss bar manager Bobby Sloan. “Let’s just say it’s going to be a bloody good time.”
Doors open at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, November 12 and tickets start at $50 per person. Admission includes supper and a pouring of “Take The Black Stout.” The first twenty guests to arrive receive a complimentary “Game of Thrones”-themed beer glass to keep. The epic feast will be held on Bow and Truss’ relaxing patio space whilst the regular menu remains on offer inside.
“Thanksgiving is coming a couple weeks early to Bow & Truss,” jokes Sloan. “Let’s just say we’re celebrating the holiday in a decidedly feudal fashion.”
