It’s on again! Join us at Sweetpea Bakery for a 4 course dinner to benefit Portland’s Family Dogs New Life Shelter, an non-profit no-kill dog shelter for, but not limited to, pups who are at risk of going to doggy heaven before their time.
Wild and free. Ish.
Once again, we will transform Sweetpea into a candlelit bistro and you will be waited on hand and foot by Herbivore, Food Fight and Scapegoat staffers.
This month’s dinner is inspired by the cuisine of Jamaica. It might be cold and rainy in Portland, but let’s keep our bellies warm and cozy and lounging in the sun.
