Something special is coming up on Sunday – it’s so special it’s “to die for,” and luckily there are a few tickets left, so grab them quick. Yet again, there’s something brewing down in Long Beach – but for this 11th installment of Dionicess, you can forget it being holiday themed, and instead Walking Dead themed. Zombie themed. What-have-you.
To match, the series has been temporarily renamed as “Die”-nisis and will be serving food to accommodate their vision, including food and beer inspired by corpses, skeletons, brains and all of the above. Though they say it’s a 5-course dinner, if you’re familiar at all with their events, you know there will be some extras.
The menu, prepared by Gabe Gordon in collaboration with the other Die-Nisis heads, reads something like the chapters of a zombie book:
- The Cause
- Reanimation (live octopus??)
- Bored with Brains
- Skeletal Remains
- The Cure
And of course, the beer. Beer that will be brewed especially for this event includes participants like none other than Beachwood BBQ & Brewing, Eagle Rock Brewery, Monkish Brewing Co., Phantom Carriage Brewery, TAPS Fish House & Brewery, and The Bruery. Everything you could possibly want in Southern California beer. And Portola Coffee Lab is involved with the final dish, described as “The Cure.”
Bonus: You’ll get to hear intriguing speakers (a pharmacologist, an expert in forensics and a neuroscientist amongst others). They will guide guests through what they might expect in a zombie apocalypse, and how best to prepare themselves when one occurs. I mean, if it occurs – in which case you will certainly survive much longer than others who will not have heard their tips.
So get your tickets before they’re gone. Your survival could depend on it…
