Local Food: Thanks to multiple requests from people craving the sticky sweetness, our maple pudding cake is ready early this year, with a few new twists. Steven bakes the pudding cake, creating a sweet syrupy pudding sauce under the crispy, chewy cake topping. Pumpkin from Nancy Kish at Agape Hill Farm is added to balance the sweet maple syrup from Caledonia Farm. A cool scoop of eggnog ice cream from Strafford Organic Creamery is a new addition, as are the maple roasted pears, with pears from Provender Farm in Cabot. The resulting combination of flavors makes a sweet and rich finish to your meal. Enjoy it with a cappuccino or Espresso Martini, made with Vermont White Vodka.
At the Bar: Come in to enjoy our Sunday and Monday drink specials. This Sunday, October 30 we offer a $2.50 pint of Trout River Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, a $4 glass of Boyden Valley Seyval Blanc or Big Barn Red. Our Cranberry Margarita made with cranberry juice from Vermont Cranberry Company, is offered for $5.
Around the Galaxy: Archer Mayor returns for his annual visit on Tuesday, October 25th. Don't miss the ever entertaining Archer, and remember signed books make excellent gifts. Archer's 22nd Joe Gunther mystery Tag Man features perhaps his most intriguing criminal to date. Come to Galaxy Tuesday at 7 to get the latest.
Music Notes: The Littlest Birds, a cello-banjo duo touring from Mammoth Lakes, CA will join us Thursday, October 27 at 7:30. Be sure to catch their blend of old-time, bluegrass and folk sounds.
Local Events: A community discussion on Vermont's health care future will be held at the Hardwick Town House on Tuesday, October 25 from 6:30-8:00.
