This week is a big one for food-centric events in 417-land. Prairie Pie is hosting another Pot Pie Pop-Up event on Saturday, with a sweet little outdoor bistro space set up in the alleyway. You can preorder pot pies on Prairie Pie’s website, but there will be some walk-up pot pies available too. Flavors include chicken pot pie, beef and mushroom pot pie and veggie pot pie, and you can also grab some mini dessert pies and local drinks like Spring Branch Kombucha and Coffee Ethic coffee.
Also on Saturday, Springfield Charcuterie is offering a charcuterie class. See the link to the Facebook page for details.
Vino Cellars is kicking off a month of activities as well, starting with Saturday’s Sips & Dips event, which pairs wine with tasty warm dips.
At Silver Dollar City, Harvest Festival (with it’s gourd-centric Pumpkins in the City attraction) has begun and runs through the end of the month. New SDC festivals always come with special food offerings, and Harvest Fest is no different. There are a ton of pumpkin-centric items, like pumpkin cheesecake funnel cake, churros that you can dip in pumpkin fluff, caramel apple shakes, and even a huge waffle cone filled with marshmallows, pumpkin cheesecake filling and kettle corn. Holy moly, that sounds sweet and delicious.
And finally, 4 by 4 Brewing Co. is offering weekly Beer & Yoga events. Every Sunday at 11 a.m. you can take part in an hour-long yoga class led by Alexis Guccione and sip on a pint of beer. The class costs $15, and no reservations are required.
