First Friday: June Edition

This week has the First Friday for the month of June, and in keeping with the East Village tradition, AllSpice will be open this Friday night until 8 pm.

How do you follow a fabulous First Friday in May that was also Cinco de Mayo? In June, you host a First Friday Grill Fest!

Here are the details: Our theme will be grilling out. From 5 – 8 pm this Friday, June 2, we will be sampling our signature Beer Simmered Bratwurst with homemade Denise’s Mustard.

Rory_grillingTo round out the menu (and because your mama said you should also eat some fruits and vegetables) we’ll also be serving pasta salad, fruit salad, and Cilantro Lime Corn Salad (our Recipe of the Week) featuring our new Cancun Rub.

Many of the other East Village shops, restaurants, and salons will be open late for First Friday as well. Special events include:

  • Eden is having a Let Them Eat Cake! anniversary/birthday party (with cake, duh!),
  • Preservation is having a pop-up show of hand-made jewelry by Lunette,
  • and City Sounds (the group who have put crazily-painted upright pianos on streetcorners all around town) are hosting a live outdoor performance by Tony Bohnenkamp at Raygun at 5:30.

You’ll find any last-minute changes or additions to our Grill-Out party on the AllSpice First Friday Facebook event page. See you Friday, June 2!
