Saturday, OCT 28th: 7-9:45PM
TBS began in 2013 and soon became the first house band for Caffè Amouri shortly after its opening. Though originally high school friends, the band is scattered across the US and is coming together for this one weekend performance! Playing originals and covers (oldies and newbies), TBS offers a good time to hear the songs you love and find new ones too.
Thurs, Nov. 2nd: 7-8PM
Tired of Sweet Potatoes done the same way every time? Try a Sweet Potato Souffle with Pecans. It's lighter in texture and has wonderful flavor and is a nice way to incorporate sweet potato into the Thanksgiving meal. For dessert, instead of the typical Apple Pie, try an Apple/Pear Galette. Galettes are an easy way to create a fantastic dessert without the need for a pie pan or tart pan! Brought to you by our friends at Culinaria Cooking School

Wed., Oct. 25: 7-8pm Roast Theory: The Roast Machine
The modern-day coffee roaster is a complex machine! Ever wondered how we got there.. and what all was considered in the process? In this class, we will attempt to start from scratch and envision how we would design our own roaster to make the best batch of coffee possible! Note: Although this class will be highly interesting and engaging, it will not entail any actual coffee roasting. Look out for future classes for hands-on roasting.
