Prime Meats Beer Dinner
Prime Meats, 465 Court Street, Brooklyn
Beer can be an inspiration for many, let’s say, not very smart activities. So, here’s one that we certainly won’t regret: a whole beer inspired menu, complete with the high-quality proteins straight from Prime Meats. The Brooklyn farm-to-table joint will use local and imported varieties of ye old brew as their muse for a lineup of Cheddar Beer Soup, House Made Sausage, Venison Schnitzel, Artisan Cheese and Malted Toffee Pudding. Pro-tip: Reservations are required, so be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a spot. Dinner is $55 per person.

Save Room for Dessert
Brooklyn Brewery, 79 North 11th Street, Brooklyn
There are times when it’s impossible to save room for dessert. For instance, at a barbecue joint where you’ve ordered meat by the pound, and can’t bring yourself to stop eating. This is not one of those times. We’re saving room in our bellies this Wednesday for plenty of sweets and pints. Brooklyn Brewery and Edible Brooklyn will have a panel of experts from Roni-Sue Chocolates, Love Sweet Love Pralines and Sugarbuilt on hand for demos, tips, small samples and a Q&A on all things sweet tooth. Admission is $5.

Warm Up With Whiskey
Beekman Bar & Books, 889 1st Avenue, Manhattan
Forget wool scarves and ski socks, Beekman Bar & Books knows our favorite way to stay warm come ridiculous arctic blasts. Yessir, whiskey holds the keys to our cold, winter-worn hearts. At Warm up with Whiskey they’ll have a whole flight of the good stuff for $50 per person. Go in depth on the flavors and origins of each American whiskey — or just drink ‘em down for warmth. After all, it ain’t called firewater for nothin’.
