Food briefs: Pittsburgh dining deals are in the cards

Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, 8:57 p.m.
 

A new concept in dining discounts comes in the form of a deck of cards. A box of City Dining Cards contains 50 discount cards, each worth $10 off a bill of $30 or more (exclusive of tax, tip and alcohol). Two wild cards hidden in the deck offer more freebies. Restaurants include Pittsburgh favorites, such as Root 174, Nine On Nine, Olive or Twist, Taste of Dahntahn and Cibo.

A deck of City Dining cards cost $20, with 5 percent of all sales going to the Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank. They can be purchased at Whole Foods, Marty's Market and Pavement or online. Details: www.citydiningcards.com

Neighbors in the Strip will host a “Stroll the Strip” event from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

One tasty, Dark 'n Stormy night

Village Candy will offer tastes of an array of glass-bottled ginger ales and beers, and the renowned Sharp Edge Bistro will be lending one of their expert mixologists to discuss and demonstrate two rapidly up-and-coming retro cocktails, the Dark 'n Stormy and the Moscow Mule. Both have ginger beer as their primary component, and Village Candy has the largest selection of these mysterious beverages/mixers in the area.
