Munchies to get you through the weekend
Friday, 22 Nov 2013
TGIF caters to a range of tastes this Friday. From truffles and fine burgundy to, well, beer pong. We never thought we’d be writing about beer pong. But ask anyone you know and they’ll tell you it’s big fun and an apt weekend caper!
Think you’ve got what it takes to be crowned The King of Beer Pong? Put your eye-wrist-liver coordination to the test at OverEasy’s inaugural beer pong showdown and walk away with amazing prizes. It’s perfectly fine to remain a spectator ‘cause happy hour is all day long from 3-10pm, along with 1-for-1 promotions for house pour spirits, beer and wine. Gather your buddies!
This weekend is your last chance to try 4XFOUR, Singapore’s largest pop-up dining experience. It will go out with a bang, starring Alvin Leung (19-23 Nov), the genius holding the reins of Bo Innovation in Hong Kong. No stranger to pushing limits (he was trained as an engineer), Chef Leung’s brand of Xtreme Chinese cuisine is out to thrill you gourmands. Wrap your tastebuds around molecular Xiao Long Bao (steamed pork dumplings) and foie gras with mui choy (preserved Chinese mustard green).
Truffle season is still going strong! As part of the Asian Masters series, Mandarin Oriental’s Cherry Garden is serving up a decadent seven-course spread of truffle-laced Cantonese dishes- exclusively on 29 Nov. The feast wouldn’t be complete without the fine burgundies sourced from Domaine Nicolas Potel and Domaine Benjamin Leroux.
Sip on award-winning Feral craft beer, and tuck into hearty true-blue Australian cuisine, at Intrepid Gastro Bar. This one-night-only five-course dinner will feature pan-seared blue swimmer crab cakes (matches well with Feral white beer), crispy pork belly with smoked pea puree (pairs perfectly with Feral hop hog pale ale), and prosciutto-wrapped king prawns for the seafood lovers.
Shake off the Monday blues at ME@OUE’s Industria Monday nights. Relish all-night-long (starting 5pm) happy hour prices, groove to rad beats from some of the finest local DJs, and soak in the picturesque Singapore skyline from the outdoor lounge. The fun isn’t just limited to Mondays, mind you! Book your calendars for Rendez-vous Tuesdays (first Tuesday of the month) and Martini Tuesdays (third Tuesday of the month), for a full week of revelry.
