This Bites: A Slow Food Social and a Filipino NY’s Eve

The culinary podcast featuring 88Nine’s Tarik Moody and MilMag’s Ann Christenson talking about all things dining-related.

Tarik and I are This Bite-ing it with lots of food news you can use. First up is an event this Sunday, Dec. 15, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., at Spoone & Crockpott (a.k.a., Boone & Crockett) in the Harbor District. For their Slow Food Social, as they’re calling it, you’ll get all-you-can-eat food plus one beer or cocktail for a set price ($35) and the proceeds will benefit Milwaukee Riverkeeper. Over 20 local businesses will offer food and drink, and they include Goodkind, plant-based food truck Maya Ophelia’s, Vanguard Bar, DanDan, Amilinda, Pete’s Pops and many more.

At some point, Tarik and I will have a longer segment on New Year’s Eve (the end of a decade!), but we wanted to get in a quick mention about Filipino restaurant Meat on the Street’s NY’s Eve plans (Dec. 31, 4-9 p.m.). The restaurant located at Eleven25  (the development on the Pabst brewing grounds) is doing a special Kamayan + Kin dining event that features a huge spread of food meant to be eaten sans utensils. Yep, it’s all about eating with your hands. Hear more about that.  

Bay View’s Lazy Susan is taking order for a special French-Canadian meat pie. That’s from now until Dec. 18. Chef AJ uses her aunt’s recipe for the pork-potato pie called tourtiere. Place your order; the pies will be ready for pickup on Dec. 23.

And before you hear our sign-off, we share the incredible news that Purple Door Ice Cream recently featured a Malort-flavored ice cream, making Tarik so very proud. And remember, This Bites airs at 8 a.m. on Friday mornings on 88Nine Radio Milwaukee. If you miss it, no sweat. You can catch our podcast right here.
