It's a Dining@Large meet-up -- at Mr. Rain's Fun House
Mr. Rain's Fun House is inviting us all to a Winter Menu Preview on Wednesday, January 19, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.
The impetus for this lovely invitation? This post on the Top 10 most wanted for 2011.
One of the most wanted was Korean Fried Chicken, an already established food craze in Los Angeles and New York that hasn't yet hit Baltimore.
Mr. Rain's chef, Bill Buszinski, saw the post and commented:
How about instead of following a trend, (Korean Fried Chicken) we start a new one - Filipino Fried Chicken, Adobo chicken deep fried with a classic batter.
Pick a day for a happy hour and I would be happy to make a batch for the Dining@Large crowd.
Done, and done.
The January 19 event at Mr. Rain's Fun House, open since 2009 atop the American Visionary Art Museum, will include a bar menu highlighting the Filipino Fried Chicken, new libations from the winter cocktail list and complimentary tastes from the restaurant's winter dinner menu.
The happy hour menu will also include Tuna Poke with Avocado & Sturgeon Caviar, Lumpia (Filipino-style spring rolls), Choptank sweets, rumaki, poutine, mussels in sambal & sparkling wine and black-eyed pea cakes with chow chow relish.
Everyone is invited, and a few Baltimore Sunlebrities are sure to be there!
