Ramp Dinner at Little Goat
Ramp season is fleeting and precious. Treasure it with a full-fledged ramp-themed dinner. Little Goat is celebrating ramps in all their glory on Sunday, April 27, for their next Sunday supper, an apt homage to spring with the spotlight on one of the season's most awaited provisions. The event begins with ramp snacks and drinks on the rooftop at 5:00 p.m., followed by a ramp-tastic dinner inside. The cost is $75 per person and tickets can be purchased here.
Eat Caesar Burgers for a Good Cause
DMK Burger Bar continues its 365 Days of Giving campaign with its latest burger special: the Caesar burger. This burger is as mighty as the murdered ruler, featuring a chicken burger heaped with sun-dried tomato, romaine, Caesar dressing, and lemony onions. Available through April 29, all proceeds from the $10 burger benefit DMK's current charity du jour: Gateway Green. Additionally, DMK is also offering Cuban burgers and caramel corn milkshakes as specials through April.
