Say hello to our latest addition to the menu: the Tofu Satay Sandwich. This vegan sandwich—made with seasoned fried tofu, peanut sauce, our secret house slaw, cucumber, and served on toasted Grand Central ciabatta bread—is now a permanate fixture at the Old Gold.
In addition to that, we've added a new Grilled Cheese option (made with sharp cheddar, beer-braised onions, and tomato) to both our regular, and late night, menus.
Why will we be closed?
For our annual Super Awesome Employee Appreciation Party™, that's why.
Our hardworking staff deserves a day off—a day spent on the other side of the bar—but we'll be open at 4pm on Tuesday, January 19th. Don't eat or drink until we reopen.
Aw, jeez. But worry not, we'll post details on a new class date in the coming weeks.
Our January 23rd class is totally sold out. Aw nuts!
But we just announced a new Whiskey 101 class for Saturday, February 6th. As you can see above, these classes sell out quickly so reserve yourself a set—of grab a spot as a gift for a whiskey-loving pal—as soon as you can. Details here.
January is for learnin'.
Learnin' about whiskey, that is.
Due to popular demand there will be TWO whiskey classes in January.
On Saturday the 23rd at noon, Whiskey 101 will cover the vast world of American Whiskeys. Learn about bourbon, rye, and so much more in this interactive (drinking while learning) class. The class will be held at Paydirt (2724 NE Pacific) and runs $35, which includes a half-dozen tastings and snacks.
Pack your passport, because on Saturday January 30th at noon, Whiskey 201 will explore the exciting world of global whisk(e)y. This $45 class—also held at Paydirt—includes six pours from Scotland, Ireland, Japan and more. Plus snacks. Don't forget the snacks.
In the recent months we've constantly been changing and updating our menu. A wide array of new salads, vegetarian sandwiches, and burgers have joined all your old favorites on the menu. Just recently we've added our Poutine (beer-battered fries, house made beef gravy, cheese curds) to the menu full time, in addition to our Cubano (roasted pork, ham, dill pickles, swiss, habanero mayo, mustard) which is on both the daily menu, and our late night offerings as well.
Basically what we're saying is come on over whenever your hungry.
Remember how we announced a Whiskey 101: An Exploration of American Whiskey class for the month of November but then it sold out? Fast. It sold out very fast.
Since we care so dearly about your whiskey education (whiskucation?), we've announced a new class for Saturday, December 5th. The class will be held at 12pm at Paydirt (28th and Sandy). This interactive class will cover the origins, styles, and varieties of American Whiskey. This includes bourbons, ryes, and plenty more. Yes, you'll get to drink as you learn, as host/professor Andrew Finkelman helps you learn more about the most fascinating spirit on your liquor shelf.
As always, space is limited, so buy your tickets right here.
