Getcha Hotcakes



On Thursday, December 11th at 8 pm explore 10,000 years of grain at Flux Factory with a time-traveling pancake potluck dinner…Is there any other way to time-travel?

Pancakes will be made with Einkorn, one of the earliest cultivated grains; Kernza, a perennial grain currently under development at The Land Institute in Kansas; and Corn flour, a contemporary staple grain. Bring a historical or futuristic tasty topping to enjoy with pancakes.

Arrive at 6:30 to check out and discuss Flux Factory’s new exhibit Kitchens & Capitalism.

Beautiful, let’s get thoughtful and fill our bellies with ‘cakes.

Hello Lovelies,

We’ve got something special that we would like to share. Our friend and occasional DJ contributor, Sarah Gerard, is raising money for the book tour of her debut novel, Binary Star. Sarah is a beautiful and honest writer, her book centers on “stars, celebrity culture, advertising, the American landscape, the thrills and pitfalls of young love, and the daily fight to survive”–we are intrigued!
