We’re happy to have Chef Heather Heartman on board for this one. Her dishes have graced the tables of both Spoonriver and its sister restaurant, Cafe Brenda. Heather will start things off with a mushroom patè followed by Vietnemese grilled pork salad.
Rush River Brewing from River Falls Wisconsin will be on hand sampling beers, talking about their beers and pairing them with Heather’s food.
Our newest addition will be members of Northern Brewer family hanging around the back with a big pot of boiling wort. That’s right, our first homebrew. We plan on brewing a batch at each show and sampling it at the following Gastro Non Grata.
Music will begin with Mr. Fly, resident singer/songwriter of Spoonriver, followed by the tonal sincerity of Dreamland Faces, the yearning rock of the Evening Rig, Hair raising noise from His Mischief and the complete musical onslaught of Birthday Suits.
Colin Gasko of Rogue Chocolatier will be finishing the night bittersweetly with bits of bean-to-bar heaven and you can count on the Dead Meat Door Prize by Clancey’s Butcher Shop to be interesting.
