On Wednesday May 20th ~COMSTOCK SALOON~ is celebrating five years of business with a hootenanny party. From 12pm to 2am, Comstock alums will be behind the bar and in the kitchen, preparing some of the saloon’s classic dishes and drinks. Dishes include a pretzel with pimento cheese ($6), an andouille Scotch egg ($12), lamb meatballs with ricotta salata and garlic bread ($15), crisp chicken livers ($12), and Carlo’s hot chicken wings ($14); here’s the menu. Bourbon pudding, oh you know it. As for drinks, they promise lots of boots and cold-ass beer and many of Comstock’s classic cocktails. Beginning at 4pm, there will be live music and entertainment too. Happy birthday, Comstock, and thanks for the five years of hangovers!
