For one night only, dishes from the celebrated cookbook, “A Spark of Madness,” started by business owner Simran Savlani, come to life at one of our favorite city taverns – Honky Tonks alongside beverage company Stranger & Sons.
On November 9, the trio will come together to celebrate what’s known in India as the festival of lights. To light up the evening further, Stranger & Sons are also partnering to put together Indian-inspired cocktails for this event.
Diwali is a major Hindu festival celebrated by millions of people around the world. It symbolizes the spiritual triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance and is celebrated for around five to six days. During the festival, people light oil lamps, candles and colorful lanterns to illuminate their homes and create a vibrant atmosphere. Festivals, parades and fairs are organized, and families come together to share gifts, share huge feasts and practice rituals, such as paying respect to ancestors. Fireworks and festive decorations add to the vitality, making it a time of celebration and unity.
As for Honky Tonks, this place definitely needs no introduction. The tavern has a devoted, loyal following from many in the city for its comforting food and unpretentious vibe. Together, some of the dishes in the evening will include Vindaloo Mac & Cheese and the Ghee Roast Paneer Sabich with Crack Sauce Hummus, aka The “Palate Awakener.”
To make the night even more unique, the teams will whip up a few new recipes, like the Bombay-style Spark Truffle Chili Crisp Cheese Toastie, or you can opt for the vegetarian Popcorn Chicken & the Dosa Waffle.
Guests can also look forward to a selection of meticulously crafted cocktails featuring Stranger & Sons. Some options on the menu include the refreshing and slightly indulgent Lazy Lassie Slushie (you know it will be a hit as Honky is known for their weekly slushie offers). As well as the Stranger Danger or What She Said, which is enhanced with the neutralized Asian tropical fruit – tamarind.
