UnValentine's Day: A Feast of Non-Commitment and the Debut of the "Boyz II Chef" Pop-up Group
Valentine's Day is about two things: love and commitment. We will be celebrating the opposite of those two things with a feast of indifference that forces you to not commit to anything or anyone except craft beer.
Here's how it works:
You will spend 30 minutes at each station drinking great beer and enjoying a delicious beer pairing. After 30 minutes, you must move on to the next beer style and another group of new friends.
Don't like the people at your table? Who cares. You are indifferent and do not have to commit to them.
Don't like sours or Thai food? Who cares! You are indifferent and in 30 minutes you might be enjoying Belgian food and brews.
In addition to the debut of Boyz II Chef, we will be debuting THREE new League Brews created especially for this event. You know you can't get them anywhere else or possibly ever again.
Things to note:
1. This is the most creative event that will take place on February 14. If you are somewhere else, that means you are a sucker and should re-evaluate your relationship that forced you to overpay on some prix fixe menu in River Oaks.
2. This is *not* about dating, for singles, or in any way geared towards finding a hook-up. However, we love how beer brings people together and by all means, take someone home and enjoy. But that is not what this is about. We encourage couples to come and celebrate this day in a different way! No roses. No bullshit. What is a better way to celebrate love than having fun with good friends and good beer?
3. We will enforce the rules. You have to move when we tell you to. If you don't abide by the rules we will confiscate your tasting glass and then call you out to everyone for ruining all the fun.
Yes, the food and the beer will be awesome. Yes, there will be League of Extraordinary Brewers' beer for you to try and awesome rare beers. No, you will not get to know the menu in advance. Each theme is a secret!
Yes, you will need a reservation. We can't organize this without knowing how many people are coming, so make sure you get your ticket because sales will stop on the morning of February 14 at 11 am sharp!
About Boyz II Chef:
Danny, Josh, and Tobar started cooking together while at Batanga.. became pretty good friends and are branching out on their own to bring a new creative pop-up group to the Houston food scene.
Tobar knows his way around ramen and vegan cuisine, Josh knows Italian some Spainish and a pretty good Steak, and Danny.... well he's a bit of a Wild Card...
Matthew Tobar is a Houston native. He began his cooking career at Radical Eats and has had stints at Batanga under Ben McPherson, and most recently at Goro & Gunn under J.D. Woodward. His next post will be at Revival Market in the Heights.
Josh, most recently Sous Chef at Heights General Store, worked as the Sous at Batanga and at Pappa's Bros Steakhouse after graduating from the Texas Culinary Academy in Austin.
