This week you've probably caught yourself saying, "It's almost October?!" We can't believe it either. To cope with time flying by, let's celebrate the new month with a Sunday Funday, since there are a bunch of food-oriented events this weekend.
Barsa is throwing their weekly Latin Nights fiesta Sunday evening with Cuban-Latin Jazz from 7 to 10 p.m. Catch the happy hour beforehand and you can share a socarrat of paella at half price. Try the traditional seafood paella, where a combination of shrimp, seasonal fish, mussels, scallops come together in an aromatic rice and sofrito.
Avondale's Mellow Mushroom is having a celebration of the two best B words: beer and breakfast. Here, you can find breakfast pizzas, brunch standards, and crafty drink concoctions. The Eggy & Leggy Pie starts with an olive oil and garlic base and is topped with pancetta, and sunny side up Legare Farm eggs. Vegetarians can opt for The Veggie. Frittata style Legare Farm eggs and loads of veggies including a trip of mushrooms and fresh tomatoes come together in this ricotta cheese pizza. If you're craving something sweet, get the Hound Dog French Toast. Fresh baked rustic bread is layered with peanut butter and topped with bananas and bacon. The dish is finished with a sweet drizzle of local honey.
Since Sunday Fundays means enjoying some adult libations, the restaurant is putting some unique twists on brunch originals. Mellow's take on the mimosa, a MANmosa, is made of Miller High Life and Sunny D. Something to weigh you down, the Irish Lumberjack mixes Benchmark Bourbon, Maple Syrup and Guinness. And finally, a fall inspired the Allahave A Black Coffee, which combines cold cinnamon-sugared coffee and Allagash Black Ale. With football playing all day, you'll have time to try them all.
If you're looking for a family-style dinner just like mama used to make, join Oak Steakhouse for their Sunday Supper. While the dishes aren't decided until Sunday afternoon, they are sure to include two savory courses and an entrée featuring steak, seafood, or a little bit of both. At $38, it's a steal too.
Tattooed Moose is ringing in the new month with ROCKTOBERFEST. On Sunday, you can feel the excitement of October eve with German-inspired dinner specials and a lengthy lineup of free musical entertainment. The Moose will be serving your choice of a smoked half chicken or bratwurst both served on a bed of sauerkraut with roasted red potatoes. Live music will showcase the talents of artists like Cary Ann Hearst, Sarah Bandy, Mechanical River, and more. Order a few brews from their lengthy list of craft beers and enjoy the last of September.
