PINTXO PARTY W/ TOM OLIVER of oliver's cider & Perry
TUESDAY JAN. 30 5pm-9pm
Perhaps the world's most famous cider maker, Tom Oliver, brings his traditional English ciders to a Basque-inspired pintxos bar at ANXO for a memorable crossing of food and beverage cultures. Ocle Pychard, the collaboration ANXO's Cider Maker Gregory Johnson made last year at Oliver's, will be served from five-gallon bag-in-boxes spread across the pintxos bar, which will also be decked out with an epic spread of ANXO's spectacular pintxos, reminiscent of the famous pintxos bars of San Sebastian.
Tickets for this event include two hours of unlimited pours of Ocle as well as samples of many other Oliver and ANXO ciders and two hours of unlimited pintxos from the bar selections, which will be refreshed throughout the night. Guests should come hungry and thirsty!
Tickets for this event are $50. Guests arriving before 6:30pm will get an opportunity to meet Tom and will get a complimentary 750mL bottle of Ocle Pychard to take home. Tom will be departing around 7pm but the pintxo bar will operate until 9pm. Tickets will also be sold at the door and the upstairs dining room and bar will be open for regular business.

ANXO Cidre Blanc and Oysters Chapter #1:
Dylan's Oyster Cellar
Sunday, February 4th, Time TBD
3601 Chestnut Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21211
Acidity-driven Cidre Blanc meets mineral laden, briny oysters and a beautiful lovechild is created. The first in a 99-year series commemorating this union will be held at the acclaimed Dylan's Oyster Cellar at a time yet-to-be-determined (but well in advance of "the big game"). Guests should plan on consuming copious amounts of oysters washed down with ANXO's flagship cider, Cidre Blanc. Rumors of a CB Oyster Shooter are circulating. Details coming soon. If you do not like oysters and good cider you will hate this event.
