Halloween Party + Culinary Costume Contest
Thursday, October 31, 6-9:00pm
RSVP requested; rolling admission
Put 18 Reasons on your trick-or-treat track; we're having a PARTY! Join us as we eat eerie (and delicious) ashed-rind cheese, drink pumpkin beer, craft and create ghost stories, trade candy, and duke it out for the lead prize in our first ever Culinary Costume Contest.
Food and beverages will be available starting at 6:00pm; please RSVP so that we can stock enough treats for everyone. Our regular 18th Hour menu will include a few additional items, inspired by the holiday of haunting:
Sorghum-Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
a selection of Ashed Cheeses, Charcoal Crackers
a salad of Roasted Pumpkin, Black Lentils, Winter Greens, Pomegranate
Britt's Baby Caramel Crisp Apples
local Pumpkin Beer
Throughout the night, we will have led crafts for kids.
Arrive at 7:15 with your favorite homemade candy and enter our Sugar Swap. (Need some guidance? Check out our DIY Balinese Salt Caramel class Tuesday, October 29!)
At 8:00pm we invite you to participate in our Culinary Costume Contest. Invoke a spooky squash spirit, invent or reincarnate a food hero, or simply transform yourself into a literal image of your favorite ingredient (eeriness is not required). We want to see it all! The first place prize is a free event at 18 Reasons, and we have beautiful cookbooks and bottles of wine for our first two runners-up.
About 18th Hour
Every Thursday we open our doors to bring you delicious food and drink. 18th Hour café offers a changing weekly menu of craft beer, amazing wine, cheese, charcuterie and Tartine bread; prices range from $3-$20. The café features a curated schedule of art exhibits, a growing cookbook library, and music.
The goal of 18th Hour is twofold. Quite simply, we want to create a great space in the Mission where people can gather and enjoy and meet someone new.
Moreover, all proceeds from 18th Hour support our Cooking Matters program, which offers free six-week-long series of cooking and nutrition classes to low-income families throughout the Bay Area.
