Four Courses For Causes: An Evening For the Chimps 10/16 7pm

Posted By IsaChandra On September 11, 2009 @ 5:30 pm In Uncategorized | 12 Comments


The Apron Activists [1] are back! This time we’re tying on our apron strings to raise money for the Chimp Sanctuary Northwest [2]. CSNW is currently home to seven chimpanzees released from biomedical research. This group, the Cle Elum Seven, arrived at the sanctuary on June 13, 2008. Please visit their excellent website to learn more about these seven brave individuals.

Once again, we will transform Sweetpea Baking Company [3] into a candlelit bistro and you will be waited on hand and foot by Herbivore [4], Food Fight [5] and Scapegoat [6] staffers. The menu will feature all the lush, local seasonal flavors that Portland has to offer. Ambrosial root veggies, toasty hazelnut, creamy butternut, earthy mushrooms, and who can resist cinnamony apple pie in October? Come savor the warm flavors of fall and know that each delicious forkful is helping make the world a better place.

All profits will go directly to the sanctuary. Tickets will be $25 per person, but we encourage diners to pay as much as possible. For those who pay $50 per person, there will be a generous assortment of home baked cookies and stickers and buttons from Herbivore Clothing Co. Plus, we’re working on gift bags for those who give $100 or more.

Ticket Prices
Since seating limited, you must buy tickets in advance to attend the night’s festivities. Tickets are a sliding scale, from 25 to 100 dollars. Diners who pay 50 dollars or more will also be receiving a goodie bag and 100 dollars or more will get you an even better goodie bag.

To Purchase Tickets
To purchase tickets, paypal 25 to 100 dollars to postpunkkitchen@gmail.com. Please put “October Dinner” in the subject. You’ll just need to give your name at the door when you arrive (no need to print out a ticket.) You can also drop by Herbivore to pay for tickets.

If you are buying tickets for more than yourself, please put their names in the paypal comments and a table will be arranged for you. If you would like to sit with people in addition to the ones you are purchasing tickets for, please put their names in the comments as well, and let me know that you want to sit with them. If you are flying solo, you may end up sitting with strangers at the community table. But we promise that they will be fascinating strangers.

Allergies And Substitutions
Please email us with any dietary needs you have and we will do our best to accommodate you. Gluten free, soy-free and nut-free options are available.

Please bring your own beer and wine. Also bring any other beverage you like.
Any other questions? Just email us! postpunkkitchen@gmail.com. Thanks for your support!
