Five Sixty by Catherine Downes
Catherine Downes
Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck is honoring the year of the sheep with a dish called Cumin Soy Marinated Sheep-chops. Sheep-chops are empirically better than lamb-chops, if only because they do not conjure up such vivid of images of this little guy. To go along with the sheep-chops, there will be a tasting menu of Cobia Sashimi, Dumplings, Whole Roasted Rouget, Chinese New Year Tangerine Cake and House Made Fortune Cookies. The cost is $110 per person ($155 with wine pairings).

What it be: Chinese New Year

When it: Thusday, February 26 and Friday, February 27, starting at 5 p.m. each day

Where dat is: 300 Reunion Boulevard E.

The goods at LTO.
Here it comes, ready or not. Valentine's Day is just around the corner, which means one of two things, food-wise. It's either A) time to start making reservations or B) time to stockpile TV dinners and Friskies. Just kidding. Singles can still go through the McDonald's drive-thru without fear of social condemnation.

For all of you who do have someone that loves you, we have compiled a list of food events that are sure to make you remember why you came together in the first place: having someone sentient to eat out with.

Barleywine, anyone? Flying Saucer Draught Emporium on The Lake is hosting Barleywine Week, which runs January 26 through the 30th. Barleywine isn't actually a wine at all, but rather a beer. It takes its name from wine because of its high alcohol content (usually in the neighborhood of 8 - 12 percent.) Flying Saucer will debut a new barleywine every night for five nights (Thursday is Dogfish Head Old School 2013 and Friday is Real Ale Kraken 2012) so keep your calendar open: the hops are calling.

What it be: Barleywine Week

When it do: January 26 - 30, starting at 5 p.m. every day

This is art.

Don Julio Tequila is doing their part to foster an appreciation and understanding for modern art by teaming up with Café Modern. It makes sense, really. So much of the modern art world gets panned by Joe Schmo, whose unimaginative, sober vision of what constitutes art can be summed up by an Albert Bierstadt painting. But plied with a bit of tequila, Joe may find that Twombly isn't so bad, after all. As part of this outreach effort, a four-course pairing dinner will be offered for $89 for non-museum members or $75 for members. The tequila-inspired menu features dishes such as shrimp sangrita, agave BBQ cabrito tamal, mole spice-rubbed steak and cinnamon horchata tres leches cake. For reservations, call 817-840-2157.

What it be: Don Julio Tequila Dinner

When it do: Thursday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m

Where dat is: 3200 Darnell St. Fort Worth, Texas 76107

The participating chefs at this year's event.
When I first called Brian Luscher to ask about this year's Stewpot Alliance, Soup's On Luncheon, trucks with $10,000 of kitchen equipment had just pulled up to his soon-to-open restaurant in Deep Ellum. The chef was a little distracted, but not so preoccupied he couldn't take a few minutes to talk about the fundraiser that raised more than $340,000 this month last year.

For the past seven years, Luscher has teamed up with area chefs with the goal of throwing a fundraiser that raises the most amount of money possible, while not over-taxing already busy chefs. "Whenever you go to one of these charity events, it's always a monumental pain in the ass," he says.
