Pizza pop up

Fire on the Bluff, a 1967 Airstream trailer turned pizza kitchen, will be serving their Neapolitan-style pizzas at Cook St. Paul. Fire on the Bluff craft their dough from organic heritage wheat for a variety of traditional pizzas, and for this pop up they will also have some unique creations like pies topped with Cook’s own kimchi and Korean short ribs. Heavenly Day Café will be on hand with their gourmet salads and chicken wings, while Cook will be mixing up their infamous sake cocktails.

Shopping and cider

Like it or not, shopping season is upon us, so you might as well shop with a mulled cider in hand. European street markets seems to be all the rage lately, and Sociable Cider Werks is hosting one every Sunday in November and December. Minneapolis Craft Market is made up of a rotating roster of local artists selling their wares in a festive outdoor market. Wear your best hand made fingerless mittens.

The best of the best

The 5th annual Charlie Awards, our very own "Oscars" of all things food, will be held this Sunday at the Pantages Theatre. The Charlie Awards recognize and celebrate the many contributions that local chefs, bartenders, suppliers and others in the food and beverage industry bring to the Twin Cities. The fun-filled award ceremony is followed by the Minneapolis St. Paul magazine after party at the IDS Center Crystal Court and a VIP Chefs’ dinner featuring a menu from the 2014 Charlie Award winning chefs.

A portion of the proceeds will benefit Open Arms of Minnesota, a nonprofit organization that cooks and delivers free meals to individuals living with life-threatening illnesses.
