This Monday is your chance to ditch the silverware at the Fork & Wrench. The Canton restaurant is holding a “Sloppy Bibs” event on May 12, and diners have the chance to try meats and beers of all sorts.

Fork & Wrench’s executive chef Cyrus Keefer and chef Jesse Sandlin of Oliver Speck’s will do the grilling, featuring daring choices like smoked octopus, pork jowl, rabbit cheese steak, and escargot meatballs. If you’d prefer to stick with more familiar meats, worry not. Boiled shrimp, chicken, pulled pork, and bacon are also on the menu.

Diners are invited to bring their own bibs—they’re sure to get messy, as Fork & Wrench has made it clear this is not a ‘suit and tie’ kind of party. The restaurant’s new patio will also be open for guests to enjoy as they chow down.

Ommegang and Boulevard breweries are providing the beers. Ommegang, from New York, brews a variety of Belgian ales, while Boulevard is a Midwestern brewery.

Guests can get five food tickets and five beer tickets at the “Sloppy Bibs” event for $64. But if your love of beer and barbeque goes even further, additional tickets will be on sale that evening. Doors open at 5 p.m., and reservations can be made be calling 443-759-9360.
