Awesome Sunday at Paulie's; New Menu at Churrascos

MONTROSEPaulie's will host a fundraiser this Sunday starting at 4:00 p.m. on behalf of long-time employee Josh Busby and his soon-to-be wife Chandler Hamilton. As a wedding present, the couple has asked their friends to donate money to fund a project they're undertaking to open a coffee shop and bakery in Haiti and teach people there how to run it. Busby and Hamilton will use the money raised to purchase equipment for the business and to cover their living expenses. In addition to live music by other members of the Paulie's staff, Pappas R&D chefs Michael Gaspard and Justin Bayse will be serving a menu of dishes inspired by the Dirty South such as sweet potato gumbo and crispy veal tongue. With both chefs usually locked away in a Pappas research kitchen, it's a rare opportunity to taste their food. Busby will also auction off some rare beers from his collection. The entrance fee is $10, with food being an additional fee. Should be a memorable evening. [Eaterwire]
