One-night-only specialty cocktails and local ingredient small plate dining this Thursday
This Thursday night, July 28, in a one-shot deal, so to speak, Cold Spring’s Shaun McGuire, Bekah Tighe, and Max Watman will debut a pop-up dining-and-drinking neighborly experience called 5&10 at McGuire’s on Main. The festivities begin at 6 p.m. 5&10 will continue the casual, pub atmosphere that McGuire’s’ Shaun McGuire and his sister Mandy have worked to foster, while offering food and drink only available in the best of gastropubs. McGuire, Tighe and Watman say 5&10 is about “community, conviviality, and quality.” The name refers to the prices: $5 per cocktail and $10 for the dining experience.
Bekah Tighe will take a break from her duties as the baker at Garrison’s Fresh Company to cook small plates, meant for sharing among friends, and focused on local, seasonal ingredients: steak from nearby farms, mushrooms from local mycologists, plates of farmers’ market vegetables, and some nose-to-tail treats.
Max Watman (author of Chasing The White Dog and regular participant in spirits and cocktail events around the country) will be behind the stick, filling glasses with fresh takes on classic cocktails as well as his own custom libations such as the Cin and Smoke (tequila, fresh lime juice, agave nectar and homemade cinnamon chipotle tincture), the Kansas City Super Tiki (fresh lime and orange with a mix of rums, Creme de Noyaux, and a few dashes of Herbsaint), and the Bourbon Snap (bourbon, bitters, and homemade ginger syrup).
McGuire’s on Main prides itself on being a real bar; it is located at 54 Main Street, Cold Spring. Menus and bios will be available HERE. Visit the Facebook page for more info.
