Jumbo Sized Steak Deal… Meat lovers rejoice. IMC Restaurant & Bar (279 Main St., Huntington) is continuing their bi-weekly Porterhouse Night. Every Wednesday and Thursday hungry couples can try IMC’s 42-ounce Porterhouse steak for $50. The steak feeds two people, and- like all the steaks at IMC- is extremely tender and well-cooked. The Porterhouse is paired with bundles of rosemary and thyme to dip into a side of au jus sauce made from the beef’s own juices. In addition to the steak special, diners can also enjoy a glass of wine with dinner. The deal features 50 percent off all bottles of wine over $99. A full-bodied red pairs perfectly with the flavorful meat. Call IMC at 631-824-6222 to make a reservation for one of the best deals in town.
Brunch and Blooms… Come for the flowers, but stay for the brunch at Babalu (286 New York Ave., Huntington) on Saturday, Oct. 27 when Alice’s Table presents Brunch & Blooms. Attendees can learn the art of flower arranging while enjoying the delicious Cuban-themed brunch menu that Babalu has to offer. The event runs from 1 p.m.-4 p.m., and the flower arranging can take a couple of hours to complete. While learning how to create beautiful flower arrangements, there will be homemade spiced sangria available that will set the mood to create a festive fall centerpiece. At the end of the brunch, each attendee will bring home a handcrafted pumpkin centerpiece for their own autumn get together. Tickets for the event coast $65 and are available at Alicestable.com.
Dia de los Muertos… Besito Mexican (402 New York Avenue, Huntington village, 631-549-0100) comes alive for “Dia de los Muertos,” otherwise known as the Day of the Dead. In this post-Halloween, south-of-the-border tradition celebrants wear wild makeup, dance and parade, and build altars to honor the souls of relatives who have departed this earth. Or you could just head to Besito on Nov. 1 and 2 to enjoy traditional Mexican dishes designed specifically for the holiday. Staff will have their faces painted in the traditional Sugar Skull or Calaca style, traditional “ofrendas” will be displayed, and guests will be surprised with sweet comforts and warm tequilas. Tequila tastings both days, 4-6 p.m., feature Partida tequila on Nov. 1; and Patron tequila Nov. 2.
