Beefsteak at the CIA

Feel like doing some pre-gaming? The CIA (Culinary Institute of America) is holding its annual Beefsteak Dinner at the Hyde Park, NY college. Strap on an old-style feedbag and indulge in oysters, shrimp, mini burgers, sirloin steak and much more, washed down with steins full of beer brewed at the campus brewery…and bourbon.
