Eater Exclusives is a new monthly series of mindblowing dining experiences. Ranging from special feasts that take over entire restaurants to behind-the-scenes access to chefs and their kitchens, each Eater Exclusive happens only once. So: get on it.[Krieger]
On August 13, our friends at Eater are throwing pretty much the best party ever. It's MEAT & MOONSHINE, a one-night-only exclusive tasting experience based on the whole cow.
We promise, you've never seen Hill Country like this before. Chefs Charles Grund, Jr. and Ash Fulk will be breaking down an entire cow (locally sourced just for this event) and serving up custom cuts from all four quarters, resulting in four tasting stations and a heap of passed hors d'oevures, like Cow Cheek Tacos, Oxtail Tacos, Smoky Brisket Burnt Ends, and House-made Hot Links with Shiner Mustard (to name a few).
Other highlights: Original Moonshine cocktails, an open bar, TONS of beer, and music from Brooklyn band Gunfight! Tickets are all inclusive ($120) and can be purchased here. We've also got a pair of tickets to the hoe-down for one lucky reader—enter your email address below for a chance to win. Update: the contest is now closed.
