Cranberries - the other little red berry

Local Food: Thanks to the first of the harvest of cranberries from Vermont Cranberry Company in East Fairfield, Steven makes a zingy jam with the addition of apples and onions as a counterpoint to a luscious chicken liver mousse. You can also find the ruby red jewels sautéed with the crispy pork belly to add a pop of flavor, and in the vinaigrette on the beet salad, along with horseradish and dill. For dessert, Steven spices up the cranberries to top the ricotta and cream cheese cake. And you can enjoy them at the bar as well. To warm you up on these cold nights, try Steven's spiced cranberry butter in our Hot Buttered Rum. Cranberry Bob's cranberry juice is unsweetened, giving a tart edge to our Cosmo, Cranberry Margarita, and Claire's Cranberry Cocktail. At Blunch, we celebrate cranberries on the spiced pancakes, where they are sautéed with apples and dressed with maple syrup and whipped cream. Or try the classic flavors of our bacon and cheddar sandwich with onions, apples and more cranberries.

At the Bar: Come in to enjoy our Sunday and Monday drink specials. This Sunday, November 13th we offer a $2.50 pint of Rock Art Brewery Vermont Hop Harvest, a $4 glass of Boyden Valley Seyval Blanc or Big Barn Red. The Apple Cider Car, made with Green Mountain Organic Vodka, Flagg Hill Farm Apple Brandy and apple cider, is offered for $5.

Around the Galaxy: The one, the only Rusty DeWees celebrates his birthday at The Galaxy Bookshop on November 15th at 7PM. Don't miss the cake and the chance to hear The Logger introduce his new book, Scrawlins Too. If you want a hint about what kind of cake to expect, you might want to read the chapter called "Box Cake." Then on December 3rd Galaxy will celebrate a birthday - stay tuned for details and plan to stop by.

Music Notes: Get your helping of Green Mountain soul with The Rustbucket Brothers on Thursday, November 10 at 7:30. Support local music and get down with their rootsy Americana rock and country.

Local Events: Pies for People/Soup for Supper needs your help! Volunteer and make pies, soup and more for our area schools, pantries and community dinners on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 15 and 16. Contact Elena at or 472-5840 to volunteer or donate.

Reminders: We will be closed Thursday, November 24 so our staff can enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with their friends and families.

We appreciate it when you use cash or a check - credit card companies charge us a fee that really adds up. Thanks to many of you we have significantly reduced those fees this year.
