A BBQ "Popup" at Verve in Columbia City

The shindig goes down Saturday night.

You won’t find Verve’s usual munchies at Saturday’s BBQ.

Garrett Michael Brown of Verve gets in touch to say the Columbia City bistro is hosting a BBQ on Saturday from 5 to close. “I’m treating this like a popup restaurant,” the toque informs, “and calling it ‘Verve Wine Bar presents Fire’wood BBQ.’”

On the menu: “I’m smoking duck legs, chickens, ribs, pork and lamb shoulder, brisket, and house-made hot links,” he says, with a barbecue, bacony, grilled romaine salad rounding out the offerings. Expect outdoor seating and a beer and wine garden as well.

Question: If you’re a chef cooking in the restaurant you always cook in, but just switching up the menu for a night, does that qualify as a popup? Whatever, the food sounds yum.
