Gastro Non Grata : Pre-Valentine Fricassee III, Feb 13th Triple Rock Social Club

Triple Rock Social Club 
Feb. 13, advance tix $8, day of $10
Doors at 6, Show starts promptly at 7

After weeks of old man winter dumping loads of cold,it’s about time for Gastro Non Grata to heat things up with our third nose-thumbing at Valentines Day. We’ve got the whole crew from Chowgirls Killer Catering coming by in western wear to serve up samples of Indian Curry with Cinnamon-Scented Basmati Rice and Marvel's Seven Spice Raita. Followed by Truman's Asian Pork Short Ribs with Kim Chee Slaw.

For your drinking pleasure, we’re happy to welcome our neighbors from the Eastern Seaboard, Southern Tier who have been brewing innovative, vigorously hopped ales and robust stouts since 2003 and are going to be pouring from their regular lineup and a seasonal as well..

To step in and stick it to your sweet tooth, Christian Aldrich, pastry chef extraordinaire from Haute Dish will be concocting the most delicious Southern Tier based cheesecake-type substance you will probably ever eat.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? Now let me blow your mind with music. We’re stoked to have the crazy bearded men of 4onthefloor headlining the show, but don’t count out Running Scared, they were built to rock you in places you didn’t know existed. We’ll be opening the evening with Whiskey Jeff and the Beer Back Band singing tunes that’ll make you want to drink some beer, wipe a tear away and then drink some more beer.

Luckily, Northern Brewer will be on hand to start the show with samples of something interesting and will be filling the bar with the sweet smell of boiling wort throughout the night.

As always, expect big plastic bags full of Clancey’s Meat and Fish provided frozen dead animals that you could call your very own just by showing up for our Dead Meat Door Prize.

Gastro Non Grata is a labor of love sponsored by Northern Brewer, Metro Magazine, Heavy Table and provided for independent thinking eaters, local music lovers and of course, booze hounds with a heart.

P.S. Be ready for Feb. 25 as well, we’re going to be doing a poster/photo/art type show at PINK HOBO with our friends from 128 Cafe food truck. More info to follow soon.

A few weeks ago, I sat down with the fine folks at Chowgirls catering to hork a free meal and tell them it was all in the name of research for our upcoming show on Feb. 13 at Triple Rock Social Club. Here's a photo journey of the day.
