We are nearing the end of the year, we are dusting off our ugly Christmas sweaters and we are making spare room for all of the seconds, thirds and fourths we will be having at our family gatherings. But before we reach that magical time of the year, we’re keeping our dancing shoes on and we will continue to party and enjoy the amazing camaraderie that exists and the Smokehaus.
So with that said, let’s cue the Adventure Time theme song (it’s okay if you don’t know it you can sing along).
C’mon grab your friends,
We’re going to very distant lands.
With Jake [the smoker] and
Finn [the sandwich],
The fun will never end,
It’s Adventure Time!”
This week was full of adventure:
1- THE FLOOD
At 6:30AM on Friday our basement started flooding. Water was flowing in from every crack it could find but our wonderful crew hiked up there pants, changed their plans and grabbed a squeegee. Friday felt like the scene in Hercules where he cuts the dragon’s head off and three heads grow back. Shouts to our wonderful team for stepping in and helping us stay afloat!
This week was also full of spoooooky tiiiimess:
2-Rocky Horror Red Mountain ft Chelsy from Vikre!
Our friend Steve Sola is letting us use this video that he took of a local favorite band in Duluth, Red Mountain. Our delivery-daredevil and basement-badass Jeremy Ehlert SLAYS guitar in this band. You can’t see him but you can hear him shred. (We love you, Jeremy!)
Not pictured but also important to mention: Ned’s band Alamode & Jacob’s band the Social Disaster also played on Halloween night at the Rex Bar. Did we mention they were all born on October 11st!?
Have you hugged a carnivore this week?
3- Halloween in the shop
Harrison Cross is the man of many costumes. He’s known for killer dance moves, exceptional puns, and going all out on Holiday extravaganza. This year he really raised the bar on his costume game and expressed his carnivore lifestyle more visually and larger than life. We also had a visitor from the New Yorker giving us advice on what kind of beans to purchase for our Chemex (Thanks, Cam)!
This week was full of cute liver caskets!
4- Are you a be-liver?
Extra! Extra! Find these in the Grab-n-Go in our Deli soon! We will be packaging these cuties up and selling them 1/3 lb for your party convenience. Country Paté lovers unite!
And every week we’re all about Awesome Burgers
5- Can you say onion rings?
The Restaurant does burger Mondays and this weeks special burger looked like a dang good time. Stop in next Monday to see what chef James cooked up for ya!
