**UPDATE 03.14.2020** Due to rising concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19), LOKO Cuisine has decided to cancel Bangers & Berliners and all Eggs & Kegs events until further notice. Here is the full message from John LoScalzo, owner of LOKO Cuisine:
After much thought and with a heavy heart, LOKO Cuisine has decided to cancel Eggs & Kegs indefinitely until further notice due to the rising risk factors associated with the Coronavirus. This decision is the right thing to do and it protects the LOKO family and our valued guests. LOKO events are very social and communal and it wouldn’t be the same with the concerns of this virus. Each guest will receive a full refund next week. We’ll keep you posted on future events and when we can eat, drink, and be merry together again.
Take care and be well,
Owner/Chef LOKO Cuisine
On Sunday, March 15 at 11 a.m., LOKO Cuisine and Late Start Brewing (Tampa, Florida) will join forces at Pour House – Tampa (1208 E. Kennedy Suite 112 | Tampa, Florida) to properly close out Tampa Bay Beer Week 2020 with a Bangers & Berliners edition of Eggs & Kegs. Organized with the intention to ease you out of Tampa Bay Beer Week and ease you back into the reality of the fast approaching workweek, Bangers & Berliners is a hearty brunch capable of soaking up a week’s worth of over indulgence while still supplying a little hair of the dog in the form of low ABV Berliners and session beers. Since food will definitely be a priority by the time Sunday rolls around, the centerpiece of this event is the following four-course English-influenced brunch (served self-serve-style) prepared by the crazy talented crew at LOKO Cuisine: To ensure that you have plenty of pairing options for the meal above, Late Start Brewing will be pouring a vast array of Berliner Weisse-style beers, Session beers and other low ABV styles. If you find yourself in need of something other than beer on Sunday morning, Ginger Beard Coffee’s location within Pour House – Tampa will be fully operational and serving up their full menu and two featured drinks – London Fog: a nitro Earl Grey tea with vanilla and macadamia nut milk; and Whiskey Nitro Coffee: brewed with whiskey rested coffee beans. Tickets for Bangers & Berliners Eggs & Kegs are available now for $34.00 each, and you can purchase yours by clicking here. Ticket cost includes the four-course brunch and one beer, wine, coffee, or tea. Physical tickets will not be issued, but your name will be added to a paid list once the purchase process is completed. FYI: Everyone in your party will have to check in under the purchaser’s name at the door. It is well known that food should be a priority whenever you decide to partake in a beer or three. In keeping with that way of thinking, it only makes sense that the only way to properly end a week of drinking the finest beers in Tampa Bay is to sit down to a decadent brunch like LOKO Cuisine’s Bangers & Berliners Eggs & Kegs at Late Start Brewing/Pour House – Tampa on Sunday, March 15. Do the right thing and get yourself some tickets while you still have your chance. Seriously, this event gives you the best possible chance at being somewhat functional when you inevitably face everything that comes along with a Monday following Tampa Bay Beer Week. Prost!
