Von Trapp's Stein Club, Bait Shop Birthday, & More!

CAPITOL HILL— Happy birthday cards are in order for Linda Derschang's freshest catch, Bait Shop, which is turning one on December 10. In celebration, they'll be offering up cheap tacos and drinks all day, including the now infamous Painkiller. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL— While Carrie Underwood is portraying Maria on the TV version of "The Sound of Music," the only Von Trapp's we actually care about will be doing something much less painful. Besides a brand new Stein Club, with points beyond just a mug to break on exciting nights, there's lots of good stuff coming outta here. The fun-filled bar is celebrating the holidays with an advent calendar-style deal special, featuring different goodies every day until Christmas. On December 14, they'll be throwing a party from noon to close, featuring a Bavarian Village Band, and much drunken good time cheer. On Christmas Eve, gather 'round for yuletide cheer. Whatever that is. [EaterWire]

PIKE PLACE MARKET— In case the holidays aren't a rich enough time for your food cravings, Marché has you covered with their Foie Gras tasting menu, highlighting Hudson Valley's favorite delicacy. The $49 three-courser features a foie torchon with honeycrisps, a poached hen egg with foraged mushrooms and salt-cured foie, and foie gras ice cream. Enjoy without regret, because that's what New Year's resolutions are for. [EaterWire]

GREENWOOD— The 2nd Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Pub Crawl is happening this Saturday, December 7. And as if you needed an excuse to dress a little nuttily, get smashed, and wander aimlessly, this one is for a good cause. Sponsored by Tim's Tavern, the crawl will raise money for Greenwood Food Bank. 20 bars are involved — including Gainsbourg, Naked City Taphouse, and Teachers Lounge — with drink specials at each one. Cost is $20 donation, or $15 with two cans of food. [MyBallard]

CAPITOL HILL— The Greek Orthodox Church is hosting the Bite of Greece this Friday and Saturday. Stop by for music, souvlaki, gyros, lamb sammies, greek pastries, and plenty of wine. [CHS]
