Johnny's going to be doing some double fisting next Tuesday.
Las Olas' Johnny V is putting a new spin on the beer- and wine-pairing thing.

Tuesday, December 7, at 7 p.m., the restaurant will host "Micro Beer Versus Micro Juice," a five-course dinner in which each course comes with both a beer and wine pairing.

Double fisting? Sounds decadent. But it does raise the question: Which goes better with torchon de foie gras, a yeasty golden Belgian or pinot gris from Oregon?

You decide.

Chef Vinczencz will be on hand to present each course, as will representatives from Fresh Beer (South Florida's craft beer distributor) and Bullet Proof Wine & Spirits (distributors of Oregon's Seven Hills Winery). You'll get a little refresher course on each spirit and what to look for in the pairing.

Cost is $90 per head, but that is all inclusive (beer, wine, tax, and gratuity). To reserve, call 954-761-7920, or email nate[at]johnnyvlasolas.com.
