SMOKED | SPRING 2013
5 craft cocktails. 4 seasonal courses. 1 man's last meal
"After guns and final breaths are drawn the evening’s experience continues to linger like the sweet tang of rhubarb pandowdy...”
Riding into town and looking for trouble, Café Nordo returns for its fourth Cocktail Series show. SMOKED! mixes stiff drinks with daring Molecular Chuck Wagon fare, served against the sun setting on a town at the end of its rope.
The Spaghetti Westerns of Sergio Leone meet Monsanto-style agribusiness as lawyers and lobbyists become gun-toting rowdies. The air is thick as Annastasia Workman and the Café Nordo House Band exquisitely invoke Ennio Morricone in the heart of Pioneer Square. Hungry theatergoers are in for an evening of dirty dealings, high stakes, and heartsick cowboys, where the only thing comforting is the food, but no fancy-pants amuse-bouche can chase away the hearty piquancy of justice.
