The 18 Reasons Barn Dance is Coming to the City!

BarnDancePoster-2Yeehaw, indeed! The annual 18 Reasons Barn Dance is almost here! Saturday, September 12th is the big day for this yearly fundraiser, of which we are proud to once again be a supporter and sponsor. And, for the first time, the Barn Dance is being held in San Francisco; the San Francisco County Fair Building is playing host to an entire day of family fun and education, in fact.

The Barn Dance festivities begin at 4pm with a free Pie Happy Hour. We would love everyone who comes to bring a pie to share—show up with a pie in hand, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for fabulous kitchen equipment! If you can’t bring a pie, you can still enjoy, as Three Babes Bakeshop, Black Jet Baking, and others will be providing pies of their own. After that it’s on to grilled sausages, plus veggies and salads from Bi-Rite Farm in Sonoma, and wonderful tamales from Donna’s Tamales. Enjoy lemonade, Anchor Steam beer, and wine throughout the evening too—all included in the price of your ticket!

MixedBerrySquareAfter we’ve stuffed you full of awesome food, get ready to dance! Square Dancing is fun, and perfect for kids, pros, and beginners alike! KC and the Moonshine Band will be making beautiful music and caller Mike Lewinski will guide you and your family through the promenades. It’s going to be a fantastic family event.

If you want to spend the whole day in Golden Gate Park, our friends at the San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and their Urban Ag Academy are holding an entire day’s worth of FREE events in the San Francisco County Fair Building before the Pie Happy Hour! Their Grow it, Preserve it, Love it series of workshops starts at 11:30am and runs right through 5pm. They’ll be covering everything from Building a Raised Bed with Garden for the Environment to Fruit Syrup Creation with Master Food Preservers. Yay knowledge!

All your Barn Dance ticket and information needs can be met right here. We can’t wait to see you on September 12th!

Brand New Bakery Treats from Bi-Rite Creamery!

Heading to the Bi-Rite Creamery or our Scoop Shop on Divisadero for our world-famous ice cream is always a treat. But you can also find a flurry of our baked options on the shelves at Bi-Rite Market, including a whole menu of brand new seasonal offerings. Everything is prepared by hand in house by our talented team of pastry chefs, and delivered fresh from our Creamery and Bakery on 18th Street.

Midnight Cupcakes

Our cupcakes offer an ideal balance between full, fluffy cake and rich, luscious frosting. Try the new Midnight Cupcake with Coffee Buttercream. They’re dark and intense, and dusted with espresso powder. The new Banana Cupcake with Honey Cinnamon Buttercream is a lighter option with strains of honey and cinnamon. The Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcake takes our most popular ice cream flavor and reimagines it in cupcake form.

TCHO brownies

TCHO Brownie

 

Our TCHO Brownie with Cream Cheese Swirl is a treat for the eyes as well as the palate and is made using chocolate from our good friends at local TCHO Chocolate. We started using their chocolate exclusively in our ice creams and baked goods last year, and just love working with them. The tops of these brownies resemble cut marble, and the interplay between the cheese and chocolate flavors is absolutely decadent.

boston cream

Boston Cream Pie

We’re also well-known for our pies and we’ve got two fantastic new ones, featuring our take on beloved classics: Boston Cream Pie and Coconut Cream Pie. Our Boston Cream Pie is an exercise in complimentary flavors and textures, with bittersweet chocolate on top, and organic tapioca and vanilla highlighted by touches of apple and citrus in the center. The Coconut Cream Pie is rich and sweet, with subtle coconut accented by cinnamon and lemon.

 

cookies

And we’ve got new cookies! Mexican Wedding with Pecans, Toffee Chip, Classic Oatmeal Raisin, Apricot Brown Butter, Coconut Macaroons and Salted Lavender. Our cookies are festive and designed with complicated flavor profiles to celebrate the seasons. Try them with a pint of ice cream!
