San Antonio’s food palate has matured immensely over the last few years and locals are demanding more creative food options with a local flare.
The result has been a rise in unique food establishments in and around the urban core, from Southtown to The Pearl – some more permanent than others.
Pop-up dinners are, you guessed it, popping up all over town. Special Projects Social, Riff Raff Supper Club, the Southtown Supper Club, the San Antonio Chef’s Coalition, etc. – all aimed at celebrating food, creative design, and community in alternative venues around town.
These pop-up dinners have become a platform for creativity and give San Antonians a chance to celebrate great food with great people.
On Oct. 26, Special Projects Social founder Tim McDiarmid will host a dinner, “Volume 3,” at what the government would describe as an “undisclosed location.” The food will be curated by McDiarmid (Tim the Girl), drinks by Jeret Peña of the Brooklynite, and music by DJ Despeinada.
According to the Special Projects Social website: “Tickets are $150 and include cocktails, a five course meal, wine, music, our signature artist-made plates to take home and, of course, amazing company.”
The dinner, as usual, is already sold-out, but The Rivard Report is offering two pairs of tickets to interested readers.
In order to win, first:
You must supply the missing word to the following statement by Tim McDiarmid (the answer can be found in previously published story on The Rivard Report):
“Food is ___ as much as anything else.”
