Community and FEW Distillery Team-Up for a Whiskey and Chicago Style Hot Dog Tasting!
Point Breeze’s newest restaurant, Community, is hosting a “Whiskey and Hot Dogs” dinner featuring Chicago-style hot dogs and whiskey from FEW Distillery in Illinois on Tuesday, November 17th from 5 to 10 p.m. at the restaurant located at 21st and Federal Streets.
While representatives from FEW will be on hand to talk about the nuances of the whiskey and host hourly raffles to win prizes, Chef Michael Sultan will be serving up three different Chicago-style hot dogs, which are priced at $8 apiece. Each hot dog will pair with a different whiskey, which will be showcased in cocktails for $10 apiece, or as a “citywide,” each paired with a different beer for $8 apiece.
Sultan’s three hot dogs include a Classic Chicago Dog with house-made habanero pickles, mustard blend, tomatoes, onion, and celery salt on a seeded bun (paired with FEW American Whiskey); a Chili Cheese Dog with Texas brisket chili, diced white onion, pepper jack cheese, and lime crema (paired with FEW Cold Cut Bourbon cut with cold brew coffee); and a Bacon-Wrapped Dog with house-made Szechuan peppercorn bacon, fried with ginger slaw, Ssamjang aioli, pickled jalapenos, and sesame seeds (paired with FEW Immortal Rye bourbon cut with oolong tea). Nello’s Specialty Meats in Easton will be providing the all-beef natural casing hot dogs.
“Mike and I are both whiskey lovers, so we are excited to host our first of hopefully many whiskey events,” said Community Co-owner Angie Sultan. “FEW have been great partners, and the fact that it’s an Illinois-based distillery made the choice of Chicago-style hot dogs a no-brainer for us. Mike had a lot of fun coming up with the pairings, and we plan to host many more fun and interesting events for the neighborhood in the future.”
