This weekend’s show was all about the fine art of funk; where to find it, how to channel it, and what exactly funk feels like when you’re eating, drinking, and dancing in the groove, live from the Funky Monk!

Rick Cano, Matt Russell & Dale Riggins

Our celebrity co-host was Tucson’s Single Malt Soulstress, Dale Riggins of Hamilton Distillers, who shared the latest from the Whiskey Del Bac news desk. We continued with our funkification when Ramiro Scavo of Red’s Smokehouse & Tap Room shared the details on his fun and funky National Wing Tour. We then welcomed Funky Monk GM Rick Cano who taught how to get funky with the Monk’s line-up of electric libations (Pixie Stick Martinis, anyone?) and crafty cuisine.

The Disco-tec-a flatbread with roasted street corn, chorizo, mozzarella, cotija, garlic butter, chipotle aioli, cilantro, fresh lime, and Tajin

He then served up some examples of what funky looks like at the center of the plate, including the Disco-tec-a and Super Monk flatbreads, roasted mushrooms stuffed with goat cheese, chorizo, and jalapenos, and the 24 Karat Mac and Cheese with a gold cheese sauce, prosciutto, parmesan, white truffle oil, and bread crumbs. Get your funk on at the Funky Monk!
