Feast at Rooh’s collaborative dinner

When two excellent restaurants collaborate, we spend our weekly eating out budget at once. Rooh, the inventive Indian restaurant, is Partnering with Nico, the excellent French-Californian, for a six-course dinner full of decadence (think baked oysters, lamb with mole and more). Tickets are $135, reservations can be made here.

Nibble and watch basketball with Made by True

Made by True is raising the steaks when it comes to watch parties. On March 22nd, 6-8 pm, the beef jerky and bitlong brand is partnering with Bumble and hosting a viewing party as part of the NCAA March Madness. Meaty nibbles, drinks and lots of enthusiasm are to be expected, at the event is free.

Cypress Grove will be supplying complimentary cheeseboards (to celebrate the truly cheesy show) and J.J. Pfister, an organic distillery, will offer special cocktails. Plus, discounted rose, actual roses and, of course, big TV screens to watch the drama go down. Make reservations here.

Eat Bi-Rite’s Ice Cream without Standing In Line
