ELMSFORD, N.Y. -- Forget boring dinners at relatives houses for the holidays. Kick-off the festivities in style this year at Wreck the Halls on Monday, Dec. 19, when The Cookery heads to Elmsford's Captain Lawrence Brewery to spread holiday cheer “with carnage and beer.”
The first-ever Wreck the Halls holiday bash is sure to stir up some holiday trouble when the Dobbs Ferry restaurant whips up an impressive lineup of dishes while they're rocking to live music by Rockaway Bitch, an all-female Ramones cover band, and The Fat City Rockers.
A few of the dishes planned -- of course to sample with the brewery's feast of craft brews -- includes root beer glazed hams, matzo balls, hogs in a blanket and other favorite holiday casseroles.
Festive holiday attire is encouraged, think Santa hats, Christmas frocks, yarmulka, ugly sweaters, etc., for a chance to win great prizes, (basically, food and beer) for the most festive outfits.
Santa fans will also have a chance to take snap a photo with bad Santa.
Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Food Bank of Westchester’s “Feed A Family” campaign, which both The Cookery and is sister restaurant, The Parlor, have partnered with throughout the holiday season, with a goal of feeding 100 families.
Diners who choose to add a $25 donation to their bill at either restaurant will receive a $10 gift card.
The brewery is at 444 Saw Mill River Road, Elmsford. For information, call 914-741-2337 or go to www.captainlawrencebrewing.com .
