Schlafly/Café Lou Lou beer dinner to be Monday, April 14.

Schlafly is pairing with Café Lou Lou for a beer dinner to be held on Monday, April 14 at 6:00 p.m. For Louisville metro area residents, that’s two days after Thunder Over Louisville, and will provide excellent value to re-start the engines after the debauchery of the air show and fireworks display.

The price is only $45 plus tax and gratuity. Schlafly area rep Scott Shreffler will be on hand to present the beers, and of course Chef Clay will be manning the kitchen. I’d like to attend this one, but ironically, the previous weekend is the NABC brew crew’s three-day trip to St. Louis for Schlafly’s annual Repeal Party. Maybe if I get a special dispensation from the home front … I know it won't keep Scott from duty, although it's true that it's his job to attend dinners like this.

At any rate, here’s the menu. It’s mouthwatering, indeed.
