Thursday Treat: ShakingSupper

Shakin_Supper1One of the best dinners I have ever had was one with a cocktail pairing. They turn out to be more interesting than just food + wine pairing.

Every Thursday it’s cocktailnight at the Supperclub, and every third Thursday it’s an extra special edition as ‘Queen of Bartending’, Tess Posthumus, throws it in the mix for the ShakingSupper. Guests can choose a 5-course dinner prepared by chef Joey de Vries -and paired with Tess’ concoctions- or just a bite with a cocktail.

We had the ‘full monty’ with the 5-course dinner and a different cocktail to match the dish. And of course, the Supperclub is not your regular kind of venue, so expect some entertaining as a side dish as well. From arty dance acts to a burlesque stripper, and the sexy tunes from DJ’s Sheila Hill or T Amore and the Wifebeaters.
