Last night in the city of Philadelphia an unprecedented event took place. No, a Philly Pro Sports team didn’t win a championship, nor did Gino’s finally win over any Pat’s fans down on Passyunk. Last night at Adsum in Philly chef/owner Matt Levin did the unspeakable…a four course Four Loko themed tasting dinner! We have dabbled in Four Loko at my restaurant, but only in the back of the house (and mostly just drank by me, as everyone else agreed that the Loko is a no no when it comes to taste).
But some people just can’t get enough of the nasty stuff, which was pulled from the shelves in Philadelphia yesterday, December 13th. (Four Loko was pulled from our shelves on the 3rd but will be back here in Iowa in a few weeks, without the caffeine) blah blah blah. One of those people is Chef Levin. He decided to get down and dirty with this “dangerous” beverage, pairing the various flavors with suchs such as Morrocan lamb and pickled watermelon.
No hospitalizations were reported due to the dinner, and judging by the Twitter buzz, people in attendance were fricken pumped about the event and are hoping for another Loko Dinner in the future. Think about it, four courses for $35 with cocktails is pretty reasonable in any city. Pair this with a hip hop party and more Four Loko, makes me wish I had been in Philly and at this dinner! (For those of you who don’t know, I have dabbled in Four Loko myself and have a little stockpile in the beverage fridge at home). I tried to reach Chef Levin today, but I imagine he needs some rest after playing Loko host.
Anyone in the DMZ want to give this a go? Hal?
Anyway, I have a Watermelon Four Loko staring me in the liver right now. TTFN.
