Choices, choices and Upcoming Beer Dinner Mayhem

The frost may still be on your pumpkin, but you can chase it away at either of the upcoming beer dinners at local pubs and breweries. First up, Uno's Grill and Brewery in Metuchen near Menlo Park has set George Washington's birthday--2/22--as its next event. maybe in honor of the Father of our Country, we can acquire some GW Tavern Porter (Yards Ales of the revolution Series). The menu hasn't yet been drafted, but Moshe The Barman is being brought in to work his magic once again, so it should be outstanding. Reserve a spot for yourself and some friends now by calling Mike Sella and Co. at (732) 548-7979.

Speaking of Moshe the Barman, he's now plying his considerable crafts at Hailey's Harp and Pub, the cozy, friendly Irish pub at 400 Main St., also in Metuchen, near the train station. Hailey's is having a special beer dinner event on March 3. Irish Owner Chris Flynn, Italian Chef Johnny LaBarbera and Mensch Moshe are concocting a unique event you won't want to miss. Call 732-321-0777 to get info and make reservations.

Now back to business. Another round of "global warming" is set to hit us tonight, and there are weighty decisions of great moment to make.
