We just wanted to remind you, in case you’d forgotten, that this and every Wednesday, Buenos Aires’ own Liza Puglia, aka NOLA Chef, is cooking dinner with the Broeders Artesanal brewers for a truly unique night of dining.  Chef Puglia brings her Creole meets Mexican meets Argentine goodness to the table and the Broeders–well, they bring the drinks.

For a nice change of pace, Puglia steps out of her ‘Puerta Cerrada’ kitchen and heads to the Broders ‘brewery’ in Palermo Viejo.  For more information on the event, or to make a reservation, check out the Broeders Artesanal website for all the details.  Reservations are limited to 17 people, so get in or miss out.  At least until next week anyway.  [via Broeders Artesanal]
