Ruxbin's Night Market | Photo slideshow
We called it Night Market. The idea was that Ruxbin's team of cooks and geniuses (and genius cooks) would transform their American (with influences) restaurant into an international (with, um, influences?) street fair. There were chicken wings influenced by everything bagels, melon aguas frescas, and lumpia with banana ketchup to start. The meal peaked with a spicy crab boil, which was poured from a bucket onto each table (and eaten sans silverware, naturally), and culminated with a horchata-spiked tres leches cake. Goose Island poured the beers; I served up bad jokes and awkward conversation. All elements of a good party, right? Check out the photos above to see the great time everyone had.
