Once a year around Thanksgiving , we at Bread! KC like to look back and reflect upon our growth and the goals we have met, while also looking towards the future. We find this is also a great time to give thanks to all of the amazing people who have helped us come so far by throwing a huge party for them! For the second year in a row we took over the back room of Harling’s and put on a Gala-la-la-la for the ages, in honor of everyone who has shown support for us in 2013!
This year’s Thanksgiving menu consisted of a mash up of traditional Thanksgiving dishes, prepared with KC BBQ attitude. The menu featured 3 turkeys that our friends at Grill Talk had spent hours smoking before the event; 2 smoked pigs heads (courtesy of The Rieger Hotel Grill and Exchange); cranberry coleslaw; mashed taters; BBQ Beans; green bean casserole with fried onions; caramel apple cheesecake; black-bottomed pumpkin pie; and an assortment of side dishes fresh from the kitchens of our loyal Bread! grantees.
During the private meal we held beforehand for our 2012 hosts, donors and families, a couple of our friends from Oddly Correct and their band, Doing What Apes Can’t, serenaded diners with their funky rock improv tunes. DJ Fat Sal was also at the turntables helping to make our party bump with some old school soul styling.
It was a glorious evening of food, friends, dancing and perfectly priced drinks. Thanks to everyone that came out!
