THE PUB AT MONTE CARLO ANNOUNCES REMAINING LINE-UP FOR GUS’ BEER & BITES DINNER SERIES
The Pub at Monte Carlo invites guests to enjoy pub-style food offerings while tasting sought-after brews at the remaining events in the 2014 Gus’ Beer & Bites dinner series. During each monthly beer pairing dinner, The Pub at Monte Carlo Executive Chef Damis Irizzary and a representative from a featured brewery guide guests through a five-course menu, complete with beer pairings, creating a fun, interactive evening.
Gus’ Beer & Bites dinner events are held one Wednesday per month at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are priced at $64.05 per person all-inclusive and may be purchased on Monte Carlo’s website or by calling Monte Carlo Concierge at 702-730-7010 or The Pub at 702-730-7421. Guests must be 21 and older to attend.
The dinner begins with a reception located on the second level of The Pub’s dining room. As guests mingle, carefully paired hors d’oeuvres complementing the evening’s first beer selection are served. Diners are soon escorted to their seats and presented a second craft brew selection as the seated portion of the culinary experience commences. At the beginning of each course, Irizarry provides specific information about each dish and intricate pairing. Guests also are introduced to a brewery representative who shares stories and flavor notes about each craft beer selection. With an emphasis on interaction, guests are invited to write down interesting facts throughout their dining experience and ask questions as The Pub’s staff members and brewery representatives visit each table.
