Beer Brunches at The World Famous; See the Cinco y Diez Menu

Hey, fellow old folks who have come to believe nothing good happens after midnight, New Belgium Brewing and The World Famous have planned something for you. And by you, I mean me. Starting Feb. 9 and continuing Sundays through at least Mar. 2, the downtown bar/eatery will have beer and brunch pairings, plus live music starting at 12:30 p.m. (the current confirmed lineup is Ruby the Rabbitfoot, Josh Perkins, Wieuca and Madeline, in that order). 

World Famous chef Jarad Blanton says we can expect: 

Pork green chili nachos with black bean salsa and queso fresco made using their new wheat sour beer “snapshot”. We will also have use one of their beers (have a beer tasting scheduled today) to make a cheese dip for the pretzels and I’m working on a couple different styles of tamales to pair with another of their beers.

The brunch has been described as eggless. Why? Blanton says, “I hate both brunch and brunch-related menu items. That’s why it’s eggless. If I never have to make eggs Benedict again, I could live with that!” Heh. There’s a Facebook event here.

Also, Hugh Acheson’s Five Points Mexican joint Cinco y Diez has an official website up, complete with food and drink menus ($6 tacos!), lovely photography and a new opening date of Jan. 21. Hours are Sunday-Thursday 5:30-10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 5:30-11 p.m. for dinner; Saturday and Sunday 10:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. for brunch and lunch.
