Red Rooster’s Spiked Snow Cones; Maison Premiere and Fatty ‘Cue’s Fourth of July Parties

Red Rooster is now serving spiked snow cones. For $12, try flavors like tres leches, with shaved white chocolate and Blackwell Jamaican rum, and lemon bourbon basil, served with a candied poached lemon slice. Nonalcoholic versions are available for $6. [Grub Street]

The Strand Smokehouse is sponsoring an all-female meat eating competition on Sunday, July 7, at 6 p.m. For $15, the first ten women to sign up will each get one and a half pounds of brisket and other meats. The first woman to finish her mound of meat — using only her hands — without throwing up for five minutes afterward will win the “Barbecue Beast” title. The faint of heart may prefer to munch on Smokehouse bacon-wrapped hot dogs and pulled-pork nachos at the kickoff of the weekly outdoor movie screening in Astoria’s Socrates Sculpture Park on July 3 at 7 p.m. [Grub Street]

• Space is still available for Ivan Ramen’s Chef Dinner at the Brooklyn Kitchen at 9 p.m. this Saturday. Ivan will discuss his approach to Japanese comfort food and prepare a six-course tasting menu. $150 per person. [Grub Street]

Public’s executive chef Brad Farmerie is collaborating with his Portland pal Vitaly Paley to host a family-style feast at Saxon + Parole on June 27 at 7 p.m. The four-course dinner is $125 per person and promises some of Oregon’s finest ingredients, including truffles. [Grub Street]

Fatty ‘Cue Brooklyn is celebrating the Fourth of July with a sweet pig roast.
