A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

SoonSpoon1After work on Friday night, guests came out to WorkBar in Central Square for movie night. Workbar is a shared, coworking space home to start ups, entrepreneurs, and independent professionals.

SoonSpoon2Even though we are here after regular business hours, we can tell that the folks at Workbar like to have fun! Just check out their chalkboard.

SoonSpoon13SoonSpoon, a last minute reservation company, teamed up with Opus Affair for tonight’s event. (L-R) Graham Wright, Founder, Opus Affair; Conor Clary and Travis Lowry, Co-Founders, SoonSpoon.

SoonSpoon3 Grillo’s pickles started in 2008 with a family recipe. In 2009, Travis Grillo was selling pickled out of  a wooden cart in Boston Common. Today, Grillo’s has grown by leaps and bounds and can be found in Whole Foods, Wegman’s and other major retailers (as well as SOWA and other farmers markets).

SoonSpoon4Grillo’s Pickles also has a brick and mortar location at 1075 Cambridge Street in Cambridge.

SS20PhaDe Food labs is a collaboration between Jose Ordovas (L) and Chris Borges (R), PhD students by day – chefs by night.

SoonSpoon5PHaDe food labs provided savory chicken nachos that were a big hit! They were charred baharat spiced chicken with house pickled Siena Farms squash and radish, manchego and Spaniard made sauce romesco. Follow PhaDe on Twitter here.

SoonSpoon6The extremely talented Josh Lewin, formerly of Beacon Hill Bistro, was at the event with his gourmet popcorn. Lewin is now focusing on his new venture, Bread and Salt Hospitality, with his business partner Katrina Jazayeri.

SoonSpoon15Lewin made popcorn in delicious flavors like clothbound cheddar, sriracha and curry leaf ash. Follow Lewin on Twitter here and Bread and Salt here.

SoonSpoon7I was most looking forward to Kate Holowchik’s home made sodas! Kate is the pastry chef at jm Curley,  see previous post here. Follow Kate on Twitter here.

SoonSpoon8(L-R) Homemade cola with cherry shrub (fancy cherry coke), Watermelon basil spritzer, and orange carrot ginger crush. I had the cola on Kate’s recommendation, and is was delicious!

SoonSpoon16Harpoon Brewery provided the beers for the evening.
