Fall into Jimmy’s No. 43… Oh, and 10th Anniversary Party Next Week

BackRoom_PartyJimmy’s No. 43 is gearing up for fall with recurring weekend themes and tastings of great cask beers and ciders, including a fall Cider Week preview featuring some of Vermont’s best cider makers at Eden, Shacksbury and Citizen Ciders. It’s all leading up to our favorite beer event of the year, the 6th Annual Battle of the Belgians, taking place on Sunday, December 6th.

Plus, we’re celebrating a decade doing business in the East Village with a 10th Anniversary party on Wednesday, October 14th! We’ll be welcoming special guests (brewers, beer authors, plus local beer celebrities) to mingle with all who want to come out and toast us. In addition to a private celebration in the back room, in the main part of the restaurant we’ll have a pay-as-you-go bash with some of our favorite Oregon Brewers: The Commons Brewery, Gigantic Brewing Company, and Occidental Brewing Company.

Among our featured events for fall:

  • Cask Saturdays. Every Saturday at 1 PM we’re hitting the pins and tapping a cask. Autumn is perfect weather for fest beers from Germany, along with domestic cask ales. On October 17th, we’ll be adding on to Cask Saturday with “Cask 101” featuring Keg & Lantern Brewing Company. Meet the brewer and learn all about the nuanced art that is beer in a cask.
  • “Lechon” Pig Sundays. On Sundays we serve up the whole hog direct from our new Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43. Pay by the plate and enjoy this remarkable dish along with sides and a specialty sauce. Available from 1 PM while supplies last.
  • Private Parties. We recently underwent major renovations to the back room, which is the perfect place to throw a holiday party. If you haven’t checked it out recently, be sure to drop in and see the on-going Beer Portrait series by photographer Matt Coats in our “gallery”. Whether it’s dressing up for Halloween or putting together the perfect birthday bash (not to mention New Year’s Eve), we can offer everything from a la carte to fully catered affairs. E-mail to inquire.
  • Vermont Cider Night. We’ll have a full week of cider programming when Cider Week NYC returns on November 6th-15th, but we’re getting a jump start on Saturday, October 24th, with cider makers from Vermont and live Americana music on the Backroom stage.
  • Battle of the Belgians. Tickets are already selling quickly for our sixth annual event featuring three hours of walk-around sampling of some of the world’s best bottled beers paired against American draught Belgian-style ales.

And of course we’ll have all the best craft beer, ciders, wine and cocktails, not to mention our great line-up of dishes from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43

We hope to see you this fall!

Jimmy’s No. 43 welcomes Oktoberfest with Cask Saturdays!

GermanCask2It’s finally autumn. And you know what that means? Time to celebrate Oktoberfest! In addition to our regular line-up of great seasonal beers, we’ll be bringing in casks on Saturdays for the next month. We love the Franconian gravity casks that we tap right on our bar, and this year we’ll be adding in local casks co-curated by Alex Hall (Cask Marque), who previously curated the Annual Cask Festival in Brooklyn). Among the casks we expect to feature:

  • Keg & Lantern (Brooklyn)
  • Greenpoint Beer and Ale Company
  • Gravity casks from the Franconia region
  • Others TBA

The Cask Saturdays series runs Saturdays from September 26 through October 17th, and we may continue into the fall. These are great beers to pair with our menu from Tito King’s Kitchen. Drop by starting at 1 PM on Saturday… available while supplies last.

Lechon Whole Hog Sundays, Cask Fest Saturdays Coming up for Fall

Lechon6We’re happy to be in to the fall season (even if the weather seems to be clinging to summer), and we’re bringing two new brunch events to the weekend starting this Sunday, September 13th. Every weekend starting at 1 PM, we’ll have brunch dining options, including our famous Lechon whole-hog dinner being served by the plate (a la carte pricing). While our Filipino-style roast pork whole hog (served with rice, greens and a specialty sauce) typically can only be ordered for large groups, on Sundays we’ll be cooking and carving this amazing dish for individuals. Come solo or bring friends and dine on this succulent dish. As of now, the Lechon Whole Hog Sundays are scheduled through November. Look for new dishes from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43 to be added to the menu, along with great craft beer, ciders and specialty cocktails throughout the fall.

Then, starting on Saturday, September 26th and for the next three Saturdays after, we’ll be celebrating Oktoberfest with our very own Cask Fest Saturday Brunch.  This pay-as-you-go event offers a rotating selection of casks that you can pair to food from Tito King’s Kitchen at Jimmy’s No. 43. Co-curated by Cask Marque maestro Alex Hall, casks are expected to include (subject to availability):

  • Keg & Lantern (Brooklyn)
  • Greenpoint Beer and Ale Company
  • Gravity casks from the Franconia region
  • Others TBA

The Cask Saturdays series runs Saturdays from September 26 through October 17th. While supplies last!

And don’t forget our Jolly Pumpkin night and dinner (more info here) coming up on Tuesday, September 15th.

We hope to see you on the weekends!
