gerties keg party

The fine folks at Gertrude’s at the BMA are hosting a good old fashioned keg party and all of the fun benefits Moveable Feast, a fabulous local organization that feeds those in need. (Beer and food + a good cause = Win/Win.) I’m pretty much in it for the corned beef sliders and Guinness and coffee macarons…but look at the menu below. Friday the 13th is no longer unlucky!
