The Goods of Strange Society Spirits
Vancouver, BC | In honor of its eighth anniversary, Odd Society Spirits partnered with The Dessert Club (formerly Diner Desserts) for the inaugural “flight” of Will Travel for Food: Mexico to Spain. It’s the creative idea of Sam Shem, founder and chef of the Dessert Club, and it’s the first itinerary in a pop-up taste series designed to satisfy your travel urge. The Mexico to Spain menu will be a la carte and available at Odd Society Spirits (1725 Powell St.) for two evenings only: November 18 and 19, 2021. Reservations can be made through Tock.
“We’ve been serving Sam’s amazing desserts infused with our spirits and liqueurs for about three months now,” says Odd Society Spirits co-owner and CEO Miriam Karp. “Partnering up with him to give our guests a taste of two of our favorite places in the world is the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. “
Will Travel for Food: Mexico to Spain offers delicious Spanish and Mexican tapas and desserts by Sam complemented by cocktails inspired by the time in Mexico of Odd Society bar manager Mia Glanz. Spanish Cheese and Meat Plates, Albondigas, and Crema Catalana are just three of the traditional dishes that patrons can experience, alongside an inventive list of drinks including El Diablo Slush, Margarita Tamarindo, and Sour al Pastor.
