You love our Wednesday night Pop-Up Suppers, where we bring local chefs and give them our kitchen for one-night-only blue plate specials. Now, we’re offering you a little entertainment alongside. Join us for fabulous author Karen White and the launch of her new novel Flight Patterns, the story of a fine china expert chasing a particular Limoges pattern all the way back home to the coast of Florida and her grandfather’s apiary. From there, she has to face up to the family relationships she’s been trying to run from for years.
Karen White books are perennially great beach reads, and we know this one is going to take us straight through to summer. In that spirit (and with an eye to beekeeping) Alex George of GB&D is serving up Pulled Buffalo Chicken on a Yeasted Waffle, with house blue cheese, local arugula and honey. This sandwich is inspired by Karen White's sweet-hot new novel, FLIGHT PATTERNS, and the beekeeping grandfather therein. 6pm, $9 a plate, and stick around to hear from Karen White herself @ 7pm! The Chocolate Moose will feature a special honeyesque cupcake. Get your belly full and your book signed. BYOB is welcome!
This magnificent memoir of fathers and sons puts us in mind of a straight, deep deep South David Sedaris. Harrison, with his love of books and excessive interest in hugging, couldn’t have been less like Pop, and when it became clear that he was not able to kill anything very well or otherwise make his father happy, he resolved to become everything his father was not: an actor, a Presbyterian, and a doctor of philosophy. But when it was time to settle down and start a family of his own, Harrison started to view his father in a new light, and realized—for better and for worse—how much of his old man he’d absorbed. This is going to be a fun one, kids. 7pm
