Hipcooks has news. They’re expanding into Seattle. I didn’t notice this until today, but the Portland class descriptions page has information on which classes are wheat free. A lot of them are, which is very cool.
New Cascadia Traditional Bakery Event
New Cascadia is having a kids event next Wednesday, August 18. Here’s the blurb from their email:
“On Wednesday, August 18th from 2:00-3:00 We will have a special musical performance by Snailpeople! Kids’ Music Duo for our youngest gluten free friends and those who love them.
Snailpeople! is an electric, eclectic, and exuberant kids’ music duo featuring Mindy Dillard and Eric McEuen. Between us, we play many instruments. In the course of a Snailpeople! adventure the audience may hear us play guitar, mandolin, banjo, and percussion (sometimes a washboard and tap shoes too!). We came together in early 2010 to create Snailpeople! Between us we have 7 years experience performing for kids in both music and theatre contexts. We have given classics like ‘On Top of Spaghetti’ and ‘I Know an Old Lady’ our own Snailpeople! twist. We believe in inclusive and participatory musical experiences with kids. We encourage singing and moving along with our show for maximum fun!”
