Meatless Monday with Bison Brewing and Mission Gastroclub
Where: Beer Revolution
When: Monday, June 6, 5 p.m. until they run out of food.
Cost: $3-$5 per pairing
The rundown: Mission Gastroclub and Bison Brewing are teaming up to bring you Meatless Monday at Beer Revolution in Oakland. This ongoing event is extra delicious because it's cheap, the food is outstanding, and there's beer. Lots and lots of beer! If you want anything else out of an event, you need to check yourself before you wreck yourself. Or you know, stay on the bandwagon -- do what is right for you!
Bison Brewing beers will be paired with such delights as fried arancini, mixed greens, and tomato sauce (vegan), grilled spring onion, Blue Lakes beans, and romesco (vegan), braised kale, sofrito, and basted egg (vegetarian), and soft polenta with mushroom gravy (vegetarian). Oh, and lemon bars. LEMON BARS. God willing they'll bring those back for another Meatless Monday event and they'll make 'em vegan and this writer will eat the entire tray and then roll around in the crumbs. Sexy sexy.
Beer Revolution 464 Third St. (at Broadway), Oakland, (510) 452-2337; open Mon.-Thurs. noon-9 p.m.; Fri.-Sat. noon-10 p.m.; Sun. noon-9 p.m.
