Craft Beer, BBQ at Casa Borrega Tonight; Root's Scallops

CENTRAL CITY? Extreme dinner party planners, My House, are throwing a craft beer/BBQ bash tonight, January 4, at Casa Borrega (1719 OC Haley), the green Mexican restaurant/hub of culture that isn't even open yet and seems to already be THE party spot in Central City. Dang. $10 gets you BBQ from Richard Shilling's food truck, or if you don't want food, there is dancing and a cash bar. Starts at 7 p.m. More info here. [EaterWire]

QUARTER? SoBou was recently named one of the 50 Coolest New Businesses in America, according to Business Insider. [EaterWire]

WAREHOUSE DISTRICT? Oh naughty, naughty. Bite and Booze goes to Root this week, but but doesn't order no scallops in a cigar box? "Not because they aren't appetizing," blogger Jay Ducote says, "I'm sure they are! But rather because it is the dish that everyone had told me about. The dish that I got 6 or 7 glimpses of while sitting in the dining room. I could pretty much see it and taste it without having to order it." [Bite&Booze]
