Some of us are too anxious for Thursday's Star Wars: The Force Awakens release to think about food, or nourishment, or sleep, or anything other than the possibility that Han Solo could potentially perish onscreen in front of our very eyes. But for those of you who are heartless and don't care, there's food aplenty to eat. Here's where to feast this week:
On Monday, Marlow & Sons in South Williamsburg will host a Mezze Monday event from 5 p.m. to midnight. A mezze platter runs $34 and comes with flatbread, seasonal vegetables, hummus, yogurt, and a seasonal protein; the event is weekly and plates change frequently. No reservations necessary.
Head to Haymaker Bar & Kitchen in Chelsea on Wednesday for a "Christmas" craft beer event. Bar manager Tristan Colegrove will roll out six or so non-Christmass-ey winter beers, with offerings including Mikkeller Winbic, De Dolle Stille Nacht, and Prairie’s Christmas Bomb. The night runs from 5p.m. until close, and beers are priced a la carte.
And on Thursday, unlucky folks who do not have Star Wars tickets can head to Mekelburg's in Clinton Hill for a six-course tasting dinner in conjunction with Other Half Brewery. The menu for the $89-per-person event hasn't been revealed yet, but each course will be paired with a different Other Half beer. The feast kicks off at 7 p.m.; you can reserve a seat online.
