Sticks get a bad rap: they break your bones, compose only the most rudimentary of figures, and between the years 1996 and 1997, were even said to be instruments of the Devil! Proving they can also be used for good...in the form of feeding you delicious meatstuffs: Skew.
From two wedded Thais looking to differentiate their joint from the standard neighborhood Asian spots, University Park's Skew is a modern, loungy counter-orderer, covered with photos of bamboo, and spiking up "deconstructed multi-cultural dishes on a skewer" based on the cuisines of Vietnam, China, Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, which would totally make Laos feel left out, if it were a real place. Grilled options include pre-designed shish-kabobs like the coriander/ soy Honey BBQ Pork, the filet/ bacon/ ginger scallion pesto Love Me Tenders, and the applewood bacon/ pineapple/ salsa Hawaiian BBQ Chicken; or spear-it-yourself by combining a select grilled protein (steak, pork, white/ dark chicken or tofu/ veggies) with sauces like sweet 'n sour or teriyaki, but not Terri-yucky, as Ms. Hatcher is a total HWILF. Fried sticks include the Shrimp Katsu with whole panko-breaded prawns and sweet chili, the minced lean pork/onions/panko Tonkatsu in a curry sauce, and the white & dark meat/ coriander/ soy/ garlic Bangkok Fried Chicken or "BFC", not to be confused with the BFG, which is what you'll become after finishing it.
For your free hand, they've got an Asian-centric cocktail list anchored by the epic, vodka/ gin/ rum "Volcano", which's loaded with guava/ pineapple/ grapefruit/ cranberry juices floated in 151 and set on fire, and is based on a recipe straight from a "Bangkok house", also a devilish new form of music everyone hopes doesn't stick.
