The Great Freshwater Pasta Gala Tonight

 

Friday, March 21 from 5 – 7 pm

–The Price is Right–

 

Kids and noodles are just plain fun.

Join us tonight, Friday March 21st from 5 – 7 pm, at the Freshwater Grange for a family pasta night out to help raise funds for Garfield School’s Upper Elementary class trip to Sacramento.

The pasta price is right:  $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and kids,
and those under the age of 5 eat for free.

But here’s the better family deal: $20.00 feeds your family of four.  Tickets can be purchased at the door.

And it won’t be that overly-cooked squishy cafeteria noodle food that you fondly remember from your elementary school, either.  Oh, heavens no.  The real deal, this is more Pasta Gala than say, spaghetti feed.

Chef Ed Z., former owner and manager of the Samurai restaurant, and Chef Janet Arrington of Arrington Apples and Catering, are cooking up the special pasta and sauce.

If it’s like their past events together, this dynamic duo will be coming up with something especially good.  Last time if you remember, Mr. Ed brought in his experienced Samurai crew, and with Janet’s help, whipped up an exhilarating variety of all-you-can eat sushi rolls and other delicacies for one low pittance of a price during Japanese Dinner Night.  A popular hit, it sold out in record time.

This time, it’s a bit different– and even more brilliant. 

The Garfield school kids– of all ages and sizes– will be serving up the food and running the tables.  Parents, Principal Barbara McMahon, Loretta Eckenrode, Laura Arrington and the dedicated Garfield School staff and Booster Club will be nearby when the pasta gets rolling, the kids get flying, and hopefully before the pan hits the fan.

We expect a bit of fun and mayhem.  You never know.  It should all turn out just fine.  We think.  We hope.  And we’ll see. 

Come join in the community and see the controlled chaos for yourself– and remember to eat generously like Grandma always told you to.  The menu line-up should look something similar to this:

Mixed Green or Caesar Salad
French Bread

Pasta with Meat Sauce

Pasta with Marinara

We hope to see you at the Freshwater Grange, located at 39 Grange Road, just off of Freshwater Road. 

We’ll fill your plate with some good old-fashioned Freshwater family fun. 

Oh, and some real pasta, too.

  • A bipartisan cause: universal income
    David Atkins, Washington Monthly -  One of the beautiful things about universal basic income: it has legitimate cross-partisan appeal, even if it seems wacky at first glance to centrists (who are often the very last people to recognize a good policy idea when they see one.)To a conservative, a direct money grant is an opportunity to shed cumbersome governmen […]

    Unfortunately, complex failing systems have little capacity to save themselves. In part this is because the solutions come from the same source as the problem.
