Many long time Schnack customers will remember Christopher Meyer who waited tables with us, Etc. I'm sad to report that Kris Johnson forwarded this to me:
Police have identified the cyclist killed in an alleged hit and run early Monday morningin Williamsburg as 32-year-old Christopher Meyer.. http://gothamist.com/2013/11/19/cyclist_killed_in_possible_hit_run.php
Our thoughts and wishes go out to Christopher's family, friends and to his partner Jimmy.
On December 1st 2013, there will be a service for Christopher Meyer in Brooklyn. https://www.facebook.com/ical/event.php?eid=324729321002336
The service will begin at 2:30 at the memorial site on Meeker Ave and Frost. A Ghost bike will be placed there in his honor. His sister, Kimberly, will be saying a few words and there might be a few other speakers too. Depending on how many people show up for this portion, we might meet across the street from the memorial site. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHEN ARRIVING THERE. IT IS AN INCREDIBLY BUSY ROAD.

Schnack catering is available for those who miss their "Schnack attack!" We still have access to the same rolls from our bread vendor (www.breaddepo.com) as well as many types of commercial buns such as Martin's potato bun sliders.
However, we also have access to artisan baked rolls from NY Hand Made Breads and while the typical artisan roll or bread has a hearty and often thick crust, an artisan burger bun is something much softer and well squishy. New York Hand Made Breads is working on a complete line of burger buns including white, wheat, potato, brioche and my personal favorite coconut.
The coconut bun is the one I love the most because I helped create it while working in Vieques PR at Inn On The Blue Horizon

I'm pleased to announce that on August 28, 2010 I'll cooking and giving away free slider burgers at the Sparking Pointe Winery in Southhold NY (North Fork of LI). Event starts at 1pm.
These burgers will feature the famous house blend of chop meat from NYC's Pat La Frieda meats and will be topped with the most amazing cheese called Snofrisk, which is from Norway and Rock Chive Cress; Snofrisk is much like cream cheese but is made from 80% goat milk; I first served similar burgers in June 2010 at the James Beard House. Since then these Snofrisk burgers have become increasing popular. I'm bringing enough meat to make 200 sliders, starting at 1pm. So come down, check out the burgers, the music (Live Music by Ray Penney) and the Sparking Wine...
Sparkling Pointe happens to be the only winery in New York State who exclusively produces Sparkling Wines. All vintages are made in the Methode Champenoise Style, respecting the traditional methods of making French Champagne. Since it’s birth in 2001, Sparkling Pointe has gained national recognition, winning the Sweepstakes Award at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine competition for the Best Sparkling in America in 2008.
Since the Sparkling Pointe tasting room has been open, in October of 2009, it has been voted as one of the Top 5 Venue’s Outside of NYC by BizBash Magazine.
Specially for August 28th these burgers will be topped with Rock Chive Cress a micro vegetable from Koppert Cress which is also located on Long Island.

Southold, NY 11971

We have two styles of Root Beer now on Draft...
From Abita (new orleans), a very smooth creamy brew...
"Abita brews its root beer with spring water, herbs, vanilla and yucca (which creates foam). Unlike most soft drink manufacturers, Abita sweetens its root beer with the pure Louisiana cane sugar. The resulting taste is reminiscent of soft drinks made in the 1940's and 1950's before bottlers turned to corn sugar and fructose. Like earlier root beers, Abita is also caffeine-free."
From Victory (philly), a root beer that is less coy and with more of bite.

Dog Fish Head Chicory stout once made year round has become one of their seasonal brews and that season has come and gone and well, their isn't any more of it to be had.
That means either the beershake itself must become seasonal or we need to find a replacement.. We have hear good things about Choc. Stouts and one called the Edmund Fitzgerald (named after the ill-fated ship detailed in the Gordon Lightfoot song, "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald." The captain on that final voyage interesting was named McSorley.)
Six Point Brewery in Red Hook has a good strong dark stout we have tested before but it doesn't come in bottles and we don't sell enough beer shakes to give up a tap line...
Thoughts and recommendations are welcome.
