Blackbird update: a sneak peek (and free grub) for Facebook fans

I just heard from Carina Lamkin, the chef at Blackbird Kitchen & Bar, the hotly anticipated restaurant on 9th near J. Here's your tip: if you "like" the restaurant on Facebook, you don't have to wait until Wednesday for the opening. Insiders will be there tonight (Tuesday).

Here's what Lampkin wrote:

We are throwing a grand opening party (Tuesday). I bought 1200 oysters to give away to all of our FB fans. Track 7, Ruhstaller, and Two Rivers will be here pouring beer. We are asking for a $10-20 donation at the door which will be donated to the MET school to help them build-out their future music studio. We will also have DJ's spinning music all night long-

We won't be announcing it on FB until 12PM tomorrow- trying to be sneaky but feel free to put it the paper if you want to.

Since the restaurant remains a bit of a mystery, I asked Lampkin if she could furnish us with a menu. Stay tuned.
