Join the club – Last Drop Bottle Shop burglarized

January 6th, 2012 by master

Seth Howard, owner of the Last Drop Bottle Shop, emailed us this morning to let us know that somebody smashed through the glass door of the store at  8016 15th Ave. N.E. between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

He tells us:

Follows same crime at little Caesars last week.  Who next?  Coopers?  All about pets? (Editor’s note: All The Best Pet Care was burglarized last February.)

Last month the front door at Cafe Piccolo, 9400 Roosevelt Way N.E., was smashed. In  November it was the Hudson New American Public House, 8014 15th Ave. N.E. (next door to the Last Drop and also owned by Howard). Those reports are here.

Feast on Mexican fare to benefit North Helpline

March 12th, 2011 by master

North Helpline just keeps making it easy to help them in their effort to end hunger in the North End. On April 2, the food bank is inviting the community to recycle their electronics from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lake City Christian Church, 1933 N.E. 125th St. And if you’re heading there anyway, why not bring some food to donate to the food bank that has seen demand grow more than 37 percent in the past year?

Another event that community members can benefit from while also helping North Helpline is coming up March 31, the “Lake City Supper Club Dinner to Benefit North Helpline”:

“Talented, local chef, Cameo McRoberts (who has worked for the likes of Kathy Casey and Rick Bayless) will host a benefit dinner for North Helpline. Enjoy delicious Mexican fare and locally made brews while ending hunger in our community.”

There will be two seatings at 6 and 8 p.m. A minimum donation of $35 per person is requested, and seating is limited so reservations must be made in advance. All proceeds will go to North Helpline. To make a reservation, email ed@northhelpline.org. While you mull it over, here’s the menu:

Roasted tomato salsa and sikil pac and chips (Yucatan version of hummus, made with pumpkin seeds so similar to chips and dip)

Appetizer: Mochomos fried shredded beef served with a bright guajillo sauce and roasted Serrano guacamole limes and hot tortillas
 
Ensalada Fresca: (Served on a platter family style) Cucumber, jicama, orange and served with tequila spiked lime vinaigrette
 
Main: Cochinita pibil — slow-braised achiote pork served with black beans, pickled onion, and roasted habanera salsa and tortillas

Vegetarian Main: Slow-braised squash and mushrooms with vegetarian black beans, pickled onion, and roasted habanera salsa and tortillas
 
Dessert: Pastel de tres leches
