Red, red meat

The Discovery Museum Science & Space Center's second annual Huntsmen’s Dinner takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 27, at Sacramento Horsemen's Association Historic Saddle Oaks Clubhouse (3200 Longview Drive). What do horses and outer space have to do with this dinner? Thankfully, pretty much nothing—other than the fact that the $125 dinner benefits the Discovery Museum, which inspires kids to explore science. And yes, there are some large mammals on the menu, prepared by Matt Woolston of SupperClub: wild venison and elk—plus smaller animals like salmon, wild duck and abalone. Since it coincides with the timing of beer week, Hoppy Brewing Company will be on hand to offer optional beer flights to pair with the meal. Also, there will be wine, live entertainment and an auction. Leave the hunting equipment at home, and wearing a camouflage tuxedo is highly not recommended—unless you're a Duck Dynasty fan.
