OK, so I’m just kidding about Lawry’s The Prime Rib serving kangaroo, but it’s a hot topic in the all-things-green world. Many eco-foodies propose eating kangaroo burgers as one “cure” for global warming. Not kidding, you can’t make this stuff up.
To get you in the “roo” spirit, Lawry’s execuchef, Matt “Melon Head” Melton, will host an Australian Wine Dinner featuring Aussie-inspired dishes paired with Australian Kangarilla Road wines. The dinner is set for Friday, August 22 at 7pm. The cost is $69 per guest, plus tax and gratuity. Call 972-503-6688. (I should be congratulated for not referencing “shrimp on the barbie.” Whoops. Since I slipped, let me ask you this: does that phrase refer to a short Ken doll? Always curious.)
