Small Plates: Thursday, 2/22

Posted By on Thu, Feb 22, 2007 at 12:24 PM

Several special events to tell you about today. First up, the Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street, 314-241-2337) is hosting its annual Cod and Cask Festival this weekend. You can listen to live Icelandic music and even enter to win a trip to Iceland while you enjoy fish and chips and cask-conditioned ale. That's ale the way it's traditionally served, not as cold or fizzy as everyday ale, but much more flavorful. The festival runs 5 p.m.-midnight on Friday and noon-midnight on Saturday.

On Tuesday, March 13, Remy's Kitchen & Wine Bar (222 South Bemiston Avenue, Clayton; 314-726-5757) will pair a three-course dinner with wine from the Charles Krug Winery. Peter Mondavi Jr., co-proprietor of Charles Krug and son of legendary Napa Valley winemaker Peter Mondavi Sr., will attend. Courses include a gratin of sea scallops with sauvignon blanc, peppercorn-encrusted tuna with merlot and zinfandel-braised short ribs with, well, zinfandel. Price is $42 per person (tax and tip not included); reservations are required.

Finally, Slow Food St. Louis will host a food-trivia night at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th Street) on Sunday, March 25, from 4 till 8 p.m. Tables of 8-10 cost $250, which includes beer, wine and soft drinks. Proceeds benefit Slow Food St. Louis, the local branch of the increasingly influential international Slow Food movement. For more info, e-mail
