Bizarre Bazaar Supports Can-Do Kitchen!

Saturday November 29th, 11:30-4:00 @ Bell's Brewery

Join us at the Bizarre Bazaar, perfectly poised on Buy Local Day and just in time for holiday gifts. Skip the mad rush at the strip malls and come down to Bell's to enjoy a cozy, creative atmosphere with a beer in hand. These are gifts you won't find anywhere else. Don't forget it's ok to give yourself a gift too! Once again the generosity of Bell's Brewery, the organizers (Heidi LaGrow and Erin Abueva), and the artists blows us away. The artist table fee is a donation to the Can-Do Kitchen, supporting small, local food businesses in becoming an economic force to be reckoned with!
