Rob Shamlian might not be the biggest fan of bloggers, after they obsessively covered his fight to open Mason Dixon, but his other restaurant, Spitzers Corner, is extending the olive branch to them with a Bloggers N Beer event on Monday, June 9. Internet scribes like Samuel Merritt, of Civilization of Beer, and Laren Spirer, of Gothamist, will pick their favorite items off Spitzers menu and pair them with their favorite beers, pontificating about the flavor combos to anyone who shells out $20. We at Grub Street were also approached to participate, but Spitzers doesnt serve croquettes. Since we couldnt have our dream duo of bock and balls, we're not going.
