August’s Third Thursday Pairings with Foggy Ridge Cider


With special pairings by Foggy Ridge Cider!


Every 3rd Thursday, Monthly | August 18th | 5 to 7PM


This staple event has become a community favorite & great way to experience Happy Hour!  On the Third Thursday monthly, our chefs prepare three small plates based on what’s local, seasonal, & fresh!  Executive Chef, Todd Johnson, and our Senior Bakery Manager, Ingrid Schatz, get to flex their culinary creativity, bringing you a little something different & more exciting each month.  From those small plates, our Indulge Manager, Craig “Murph” Murphy, uses his expertise to chose just the right wine & beer pairings to highlight each dish’s flavors and really bring it to life.  Add live music to the mix, an evening on the patio, and you have the makings of a new Thursday tradition!

*Please note, the courses + pairings are self-paced, so we recommend arriving between 5 and 6pm to start your tastings, that way you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the courses, and we will have enough small plates to go around!*
