Mike's Hot Honey Podcast - Episode 6 - @DrunkBakers - Keavy Landreth & Allison Kave of Butter & Scotch

April 25, 2017 Michael Kurtz

We recently stopped by Butter & Scotch, the bar and bakery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, to catch up with owners Allison Kave and Keavy Landreth.  Both former bakers, Kave and Landreth joined forces to open Butter & Scotch in 2015 and have created an "adult soda fountain" right on Franklin Ave.  The bar and bakery serves up a delicious savory menu, built around their beloved biscuit.  But folks with a sweet tooth will enjoy a slice of pie or their famous birthday cake alongside one of the bar's craft cocktails.  Check out Episode 6 of the official Mike's Hot Honey...


Mike's Hot Honey Goes to the Movies! - A Visit to Nitehawk Cinema

April 19, 2017 Michael Kurtz

Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, one of the first theaters in NYC to offer food & drink service, is a true trailblazer.  The three-screen cinema opened in 2011 and was single-handedly responsible for overturning the prohibition-era New York State liquor law that made serving alcohol in motion picture theaters illegal.  Now movie-goers can enjoy a carefully curated mix of first-run films and classic flicks while sipping on cocktails and enjoying a menu of food that features local ingredients and dishes inspired by the staff's favorite films.We visited to check out Nitehawk's new Spring menu, which features two new dishes made with Mike's...

Wheated & Episode 4 of the Mike's Hot Honey Podcast

March 23, 2017 Michael Kurtz

Dave Sheridan's pizzeria Wheated, located on Church Ave in Brooklyn, might have the best bar and alcohol selection of any pizzeria we've been to.  Sheridan, a Kentucky native, has built an impressive whiskey list that rivals any in the city and, even if you're not a whiskey drinker, you're sure to find a cocktail that's made to your liking.  But even as remarkable as the drinks are at Wheated, it's the electric, Italian deck oven and the delicious pies it cranks out that are the true stars of the show. We visited Wheated on a Thursday night to hang with...
