GQ’s Weekend Guide
Tales of Tennessee
Where: The Hungry Monkey, Safdarjung Enclave Market, Delhi
This Friday, a legendary bourbon from Tennessee takes over one of our favourite Delhi spots The Hungry Monkey, for a night of Jack Daniel’s-approved drinks, concoctions that go beyond JD & Coke, and storytelling. There’s unlimited flights of Jack Daniel’s top dog Old No. 7 and Honey on the house— a perfect pairing for when you’re sinking your teeth into The Hungry Monkey’s plump (and juicy) Goan chorizo sliders and their BBQ dishes. Throw in some Blues (and a bit of Funk) for soundtrack; that’s a first-class monsoon date night right there. Ignore at your own peril.
The Andheri brewpub will host a two-day celebration of craft beers called The Craft Beer Weekender to mark International Beer Day, which is on Sunday. Brewbot will be dishing out their signature comfort food, while the city’s cavalry of microbreweries Doolally Taproom, Gateway Brewing Co., Lower Parel’s The White Owl brewpub in Lower Parel; and Pune’s Independence Brewing Company and Effingut Brewerkz will be bringing their best brews as reinforcements for the festival.
