november events update

Posted by chaska on November 15, 2008


Just a quick update on our November activities. The cool seems to finally be settling in so winter must be on its way. In order to keep you nice and toasty, we created a couple events to warm the insides. We’ve partnered with Derby City Espresso for these cool months and have some great – and inexpensive – events planned for you.

Tuesday, November 18, 7pm
Tuesday Tastings – Beer 101
Derby City Espresso – led by Matt Landan
331 E. Market St
$10 includes all tastings plus light bites that will compliment our beverages of choice for the evening
Join us for our first class on beer. Learn the difference between ales and lagers and what falls into each category. We’ll try several different styles and learn about the basic of the brew. You will enjoy roughly 7 different styles, complimented by some light bites that will help cleanse the palate and fill the tummy. RSVP kindly appreciated.

Friday, November 21, 7pm – 9:30pm, happy hour style
Derby City Espresso – led by Jo Self
Miracle on Market St – Miracle Fruit Tasting
$10/members,   $15/non-members
If you missed the members’ only version, now’s your chance. We’ve (Stephen Dennison and myself) expanded the flavor sensation to include up to 50 different foods to try in order to experience the full effect of the Miracle Berry. RSVP prepaid is required for this event as purchase of berries and food is required. You’re welcome to just show up, but we cannot guarantee that there will be enough to go around without an advance RSVP. If you RSVP and can’t make it, 50% will be given to you as a credit toward your next event.

Tuesday, November 25 7pm
Derby City Espresso – led by Matt Landan
Tuesday Tastings – Coffee 101
$10 includes all tastings and tasty treats that compliment our beverage of the evening
Join us for an exploration of coffee. This first class will examine how brewing techniques can affect the flavor of the bean. We’ll taste: slow-drip, espresso, mochetto, french press just to give you an idea. RSVP kindly appreciated.

Thursday, November 27 5pm
Orphan’s Turkey Day
My house – Potluck style
This dinner is traditionally an opportunity to prepare that one dish you never get to eat or that you remember from your childhood – those turkey day favorites. I’ll prepare corn pudding and mashed sweet potatoes with crisp marshmallow topping – and if it comes to it, I’ll make the turkey as well. You bring whatever dish you’d like to share. I’ll provide the wine and soft drinks… BYOB otherwise. RSVP in the comments here and let us know what you’re bringing. I’ll share my address with those who RSVP. If you’re unable to cook or BYOB and small $ contribution would be appreciated.

  • Stay tuned for details on the Orphan’s Christmas Eve Dinner and cocktails – we’re going to enjoy a traditional Spanish Christmas dinner this year! Also, we’ll have more tastings at DCE…
