DEAL FEED — Owner of The Recovery Room, Chris "Boston" DiMattia, is a big advocate for the food and beverage community in Charleston and wants you to be informed on the latest legislation affecting downtown restaurants and bars. If you sit in on one of the February 11 late night ban listening sessions (10:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.) at the Calhoun Street Library, you can earn a free PBR. Simply snap a selfie at the meeting and post it to the BACE League of Charleston Facebook page. Free beer and you're helping the community. [Facebook]

DINNERWIRE — On Monday, February 23, Asian comfort spot Xiao Bao Biscuit will offer a five-course dinner inspired by Ancient Imperial Rome. When asked what might be expected at the meal, co-owner Joey Ryan said, "Lots of folks have taken great care to recreate the cocktails found in treasures like The Savoy Cocktail book. To do so, one needs to find out what was used and why, how a drink tasted then and how it differs from what we taste today.  A similar approach with an intense appreciation for the history and technique of Imperial Roman cuisine has been deployed to provide a dining experience like no other, at least like no other in the modern era." It's $48 and no reservations are required. [EaterWire]
