As far as we’re concerned, Valentine’s Day is just an excuse to splurge on dinner (just kidding, kind of). Discover what romantic plans East End restaurants have here.
Okay, enough with all the lovey-dovey stuff. The big game is this weekend! TownLine BBQ is offering a Hail Mary of a menu, which includes trays (feeding 10–12 people) and ’Que Combos (4–8).
We’re partial to the nacho tray with black beans, Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, jalapeño and sour cream topped with pulled chicken or pulled pork and the pulled pork sandwich kit and chicken and rib dinner ’Que Combos.
They make for excellent leftovers as well! TownLine BBQ will also be raffling off all sorts of prizes during their watch party, with free tickets coming with every bar purchase and great prizes being raffled off at the end of each quarter.
According to the calendar, Wet February follows Dry January.
