Summertime is one of the best seasons to take part in fun and exciting events. Whether indoors or outdoors, people are enjoying the beautiful weather and are excited to eat, drink and be merry during the warmer months. On Wednesday, July 31 from 6:30-9:30 p.m., the beautiful Moderne Barn of Armonk will be hosting their Third Annual Beer and Barnacles event benefiting the Armonk Volunteer Fire Company. Live entertainment from Hal Prince will be performed as hors d’oeuvres and fine craft beers are passed to guests throughout the evening.
Owner, Bill Livanos explains, “Three years ago, when we opened we wanted to showcase the restaurant not just as a sophisticated dining destination, but as a relaxed, casual fun place to come as well. Each year we have tried to keep within the spirit of the event while making it exciting for returning guests.”
Chef Ethan Kostbar has prepared a special menu for the evening including specialty hot and cold canapés, a raw seafood bar, pulled pork and fish taco stations as well as house-made pickled vegetables, Ethan’s infamous hush puppies, dessert and much more. Beer will be poured and served up from The Bronx Brewery, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and Sixpoint Brewery. Guests will be able to eat, drink and mingle under one roof at one of the most beautiful spaces in Armonk.
Wine Director, Matt Christoff recommends that guests try everything. “We want to highlight the great seafood of summer, as well as the versatility of each brewery. Each brewery will be representing three of their beers, for a total of nine beers at the event and with a breadth of seafood being served, the possibilities are endless,” he says.
Leading up to the event, from June 1 through July 30, guests will be able to support the Armonk Volunteer Fire company by purchasing a “Fireman’s Flight” of Wine Director Matthew Christoff’s selected draft beer, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the fire company.
“We are proud to host a night of delicious food, drink, and music that brings the community together, and helps grow awareness and appreciation for local businesses,” says Livanos. “In addition to working with these great sponsors, we’re excited to honor the Armonk Volunteer Fire Company this year, and give recognition to the volunteers that keep our community safe.”
