There is a Halloween themed dinner at California Cafe in Palo Alto featuring beers from Lost Coast Brewery on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012 starting at 6 p.m.
Check out the following from their recent newsletter:
“Some years ago, in a castle far, far north of the bay, Lost Coast Brewing Co. got its start when an intelligent pharmacist had a dream to create her own brews. Her home brews quickly transformed into very popular Bay Area brews enjoyed amongst friends in good times and celebration.
“Executive Chef Todd Yamanaka channels the wicked Halloween spirit in a four course pairing menu, featuring dishes such as Suckling Sacrifice and a hair-raising Witches’ Brew. Break out those spooky costumes for a chance to win dinner for four!”
Having been started by the previous executive chef Mark Pettyjohn, the beer dinners at California Cafe have been their most popular events. Chef Todd has been continuing these events and for this October beer dinner, seems to have put together a slightly terrifying, yet mouth-watering inducing, menu.
