Sportsman’s Club Patio BBQ

Summer may be winding down, but things are still hotter than ever on Sportsman’s Club’s patio. Continuing their summer BBQ series this Sunday, August 30, the bar welcomes Cosmo Goss of The Publican and mixologist Julia Momose of upcoming GreenRiver to head up the food and drinks for the event. Momose will be working with Sportsman’s head bartender Jacy De Oliveira on a four-cocktail menu featuring Jameson Irish Whiskey. For $20, guests get a plate of food and a cocktail pairing. There will also be an Irish folk band in attendance. The shindig runs from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
