Union Public House offers special Paleo dinner

Union Public House co-owners Chef Blake Rushing and bartender Patrick Bolster will be your hunter-gathers Thursday for a Paleo Wine Dinner at their pub from 6 to 9 p.m.

The five-course menu has the refined caveman in mind with a high-fat, low-carb meal that will have any troglodyte forgo the cavern to check into a four-star hotel afterward.

The nontraditional Paleolithic cuisine for the evening includes a wine-pairing. Actual cave dwellers will not know what this grape substance is, and ancestral health fanatics who are on a strict Paleo diet may pass on the vino.
