The first course will be “Drunken Cheese Curds,” made of local Beechers cheese curds soaked in American Blonde for 14 days. The second course is a crab & shrimp tomato gazpacho with American Blonde. The main course is a braised chicken served with Break Away IPA. Fourth course brings Manila clams & chorizo with Eds Red beer, tomato, herbs, white wine and garlic butter served with Eds Red for drinking. The meal will finish with an oatmeal stout bread pudding accompanied with Oatmeal Stout Ice-Cream and served with Oatmeal Stout Ale.
Main Street Burgers opens in one week
Main Street Burgers, Edmonds newest hamburger joint, just announced its opening date to its Facebook fans this week. After spending the summer preparing, Main Street Burgers will be opening its doors on Sept. 8 and plans to host a Grand Opening Party on Sept. 11 during the Edmonds Car Show. “We are in the process of hiring staff,” said manager and co-owner Joe Bellingham earlier this week. Main Street Burgers will be serving fresh-ground hamburgers on buns baked next door at the Edmonds Bakery, hand-cut fries and hand-dipped milkshakes. Perfect for a classic car show!
Excess produce welcome at food banks
If you grow vegetables in your back yard, it’s fairly likely that you have been trying to pawn extra zucchinis off on your neighbors this last week. If that is the case, you may find a more appreciative home for your excess zucchini, Swiss chard and herbs at your local food bank. Food banks rely largely on donations to operate and fresh foods are always welcomed.
