“Life is just a party and parties were meant to last” – Prince and Step Out Buffalo, respectively
ICYLUAR, the Step Out Buffalo Summer Social Series is one of the best event lineups this summer. We’ve teamed up with some of our favorite taste-makers for four distinct one-night-only parties that let you taste what makes each restaurant one of the best in Buffalo. How it works in a nutshell: each restaurant chooses a theme for their event then creates exclusive light fare and cocktails featuring Tommyrotter Distillery gin and vodka for their night in the Series. Yum, right?
On Tuesday August 9th the Summer Social Series will take place at Oshun for a full-blown Seafood Luau. Chef Jim Guarino and team will be creating special light fare for the night that’s never been seen (and more importantly, eaten) before and never will again, and it will give you a delicious taste of what Oshun does best – seafood! Trust us you don’t want to miss out.
Here are the food tastings that will be offered:
- Soy Teriyaki Chicken Wings
- Shrimp Pasta Salad w/ a Coconut Lime Vinaigrette
- Pineapple Glazed Pork Loin
- Salmon Salad Won-Tons
- Key Lime Pie
All Step Out Buffalo Summer Social Series events begin at 6pm and are presented in cocktail party style so you can keep it *social* – no awkward stuck-in-your-chair moments here. Tickets include admission to the event, light fare, and a chance to meet the people behind Oshun, Step Out Buffalo, and Tommyrotter Distillery. A special cocktail menu featuring Buffalo’s own Tommyrotter Distillery will be available for purchase along with other beverages, plus Tommyrotter will be serving tastings of their award-winning gin and vodka!
FYI here’s the official drink menu:
- Summer Sixteen – Tommyrotter Distillery Gin infused with pineapple sage, Fresh Lime Juice, Grilled Pineapple Simple Syrup
- Buffalo Mule – Tommyrotter Vodka, Campari, Fresh Lime Juice, House Ginger Beer
- Frozen Scorpino – Tommyrotter Vodka, Cointreau Noir, Fresh Lemon Juice, Sparkling Wine
- Hakuna Matata – Tommyrotter Gin, Fresh Pineapple Juice, Fresh Lemon Juice, Velvet Falernum, Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin
These Summer Social Series events are meant to let you experience what makes each restaurant a great addition to Buffalo’s food-scene and the culinary expertise each venue’s chef brings to the table. We recommend making a night of it and using the Summer Social Series as a pregame to a fun night in the City with your friends/family/lover/kickass self by heading to a nearby restaurant for dinner afterwards to keep the fun going. Repeat after us: the Summer Social Series events are not meant to be your dinner – they’re cocktail parties meant to give you tastes of several items and encourage you to come back and try more of their chef’s creations. In no other universe would you ever be able to go into one of these top restaurants and enjoy multiple tastes off their menu for $25, so if you’re looking for an all-you-can-eat buffet style dinner at that price might we suggest heading to your closest Old Country Buffet instead.
So if you’re into new edible adventures, tasting never-before-eaten creations made by a local chef, trying never-before-concocted cocktails, meeting the people behind great local businesses, and having not-boring Tuesdays then what are you waiting for? Text your friends, grab a ticket, and come have a seafood luau with us!
