If you’ve ever wanted to sample the exotic game burgers offered at Twisted Root Burger Company, but weren’t sure that you could commit to a full-sized camel, kangaroo or buffalo burger, the Party on the Patty-O that Twisted Root is hosting during 318 Restaurant Week may be just the opportunity that you’ve been waiting for. As a rule, Twisted Root doesn’t serve sliders or mini-burgers of any sort (“We don’t even cut burgers in half for kids,” jokes Twisted Root owner Grant Nuckolls), but they’re breaking that hard-and-fast rule for Party on the Patty-O.
The event will be held, 6-8 p.m., Friday, March 17 at the Shreveport location of Twisted Root Burger Company. Tickets are $30 and must be purchased in advance. Admission includes four sliders (beef, buffalo, camel and kangaroo), four Louisiana craft beer pairings, a side of house-made chicharones and a non-alcoholic beverage. Tickets are available online.
“This may be the only time that we’ve ever served sliders, and we’ve never really held a sampling of our exotic meats,” Nuckolls says. Nuckolls is likely the only guy in town who is currently attempting to find the perfect Louisiana-brewed beer to pair with camel meat.
Sliders will be approximately one-quarter of the size of a full-sized burger, and will come dressed as popular Twisted Root menu offerings the spicy goat, the Kevin Bacon, the sexy Hawaiian and the lotsa ‘shrooms. In addition to the food and drink, there’ll be live music by Magnolia Mae. The party will be hosted by Michelle Marcotte of The Shreveport Times.
Party on the Patty-O is one of a dozen one-night-only experiences being offered by local restaurants during 318 Restaurant Week. In addition, more than 35 eateries are offered $10 lunch and $20 dinner specials – you can browse those specials here.
