Though Gottingen is down one eatery since the departure of Good Food Emporium to Windsor Street, the Halifax Backpackers' eatery Alteregos (2193 Gottingen Street, 431-3170) has plenty to offer those looking for an evening out. Consider their new Weekend Warm-up on Thursday evenings. For $30 you get a bottle of Nova Scotian wine, house-made hummus, tatziki and balsamic vinegar/ oil as well as olives and warmed Turkish bread---enough for two---with local musicians performing for your listening pleasure. Check in with the establishment for the names of future performers. You might also enjoy other evenings at Alteregos, including Burrito Mondays (two beers and two burritos for $15) and all-you-can-eat barbecue on Fridays for $5.
