Rob Shamlian might not be the biggest fan of bloggers, after they obsessively covered his fight to open Mason Dixon, but his other restaurant, Spitzer’s 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 Spitzer’s 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 Spitzer’s doesn’t serve croquettes. Since we couldn’t have our dream duo of bock and balls, we’re not going.
A blog-worthy pairing.
