WHAT: 2ND ANNUAL GALA GALA HEY APPLE FESTIVAL
WHEN: SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH
TIME: 3 PM – 10 PM
Help us usher in fall with our favorite celebration of apples, Gala Gala Hey! We’re teaming up with Kate Lebo and The Bored Vegetarian for an apple onslaught: some of our favorite ciders, apple food pairings, bobbing for apples, old-timey music, and 5 varieties of pies from the amazing baker, Lebo (5 kinds!).
She’ll be offering up cheddar-crusted apple pie, whiskey crumble apple pie, honey-ginger apple pie, brandied apple cardamom pie and apple pear pie. Pie slices are all $5 and whole pies are $40. Vegetarians beware! The secret ingredient to Kate’s super-flaky crust is LARD. Stick to Cheddar-Crusted Apple or Apple Pear Pie. They’ll be made with all butter crusts.
On tap we’ll be serving Doc’s Pumpkin Cider and Harpoon Cider. In the bottle, we’ve got Doc’s Hard Cider (New York), Sidra Castanon (Spain), Slyboro Hidden Star Sparkling Cider (New York), Aaron Burr Ginger Carrot Cider (New York), JK Scrumpy Farmhouse Organic Hard Cider (Michegan) and Duche de Longueveille Dry Sparking Non-Alcoholic Cider (France), in regular pours and a few super fun tasting flights.
In additional to apples and fall, we’ll be celebrating the release of Lebo’s new cookbook, A Commonplace Book of Pie,
a quirky collage of fact and fiction that combines humor, art, recipes, pop culture, and poetry to redefine America’s favorite dessert. Pie is a medium for conversation in this debut book from Chin Music Press, balancing Lebo’s technical baker know-how with lyrical ruminations on the real and imagined relationships between pie and those who love it.
Kate’s writing has appeared in Best New Poets, Gastronomica, and Poetry Northwest among other journals, and she’s currently at work on a pie cookbook for Sasquatch Books, forthcoming in 2014. She teaches creative writing at Richard Hugo House and pie making at Pie School, her cliche-busting pastry academy. She also hosts Pie Stand, a social that uses pie to create conversations across communities.

The Bored Vegetarian is a way to push myself (and hopefully you!) to try new recipes, new flavors and new textures. Food shound be fun and exciting, not boring. This blog is about that.

Hello Lovers is a strange fruit; comprised of and informed by musicians from different backgrounds and lineages. From prestigious conservatories to ad hoc improvisation pot lucks, avant garde and experimental studies to negro spiritual workshops, thru noise abandons and punk ethics.
The music of musician/composer j.c.King solo and in various constellations With Long term collaborators; Masha Poloskova_violin, Mollie Fischer_cello, Hannah Liddell_piano, Leah Celest_viola, Corey Walker_brass, multi instrumentalist Andy Hadaway (and many wonderful guests) has been intentionally amorphous, however, remains to celebrate accoustic orchestral instrumentation and musicianship.
With Mr.King’s unique songs, employing improvisation to examine the environments of consistently romantic themes, Hello Lovers are cultivating a zealous and ritual method of torch song. musics of resonant harmony, mystery, stillness and erratic movement.
