Micah's Menu at Bar Crudo
Tuesday, September 3
This Tuesday Phoenix's New American eatery Crudo is launching a daily cocktail-paired menu created by chef/owner Cullen Campbell and mixologist/owner Micah Olson. Every day the duo will craft a new three-course dinner with cocktail pairings that will be available from 8 to 10 p.m. at Bar Crudo. To launch the new collaboration the guys are offering crispy pork belly with Calabrian chili vinaigrette paired with Milagro tequila, Cocchi Rosa, pickled watermelon, lime and champagne - and that's just the first course. Micah's Menu will be available Tuesdays through Saturdays and costs $35 a person. Call 602-358-8666 or visit the Crudo website for more information.

"Duckaholics Anonymous" Viewing Party
Wednesday, September 4
Don't ask us why or how, but A&E's Duck Dynasty is officially the hottest thing to hit reality T.V. pretty much ever. And with 11.8 million viewers turning in for the season premiere last month, we're guessing there are at least a few fans floating around the Valley who might want to head to the Shout House in Glendale every Wednesday to watch the show at 7 p.m. with a whole gaggle of friends. The dueling piano bar will be serving up Southern eats including fried chicken and waffles and shrimp and grits as well as $3 Sweet Tea cocktails and $1 well drinks. There will be Duck Dynasty bingo (with free drinks as prizes) and a best beard contest for which one lucky man will take home an outdoorsmen's package valued at $250.
