Tag Archives: First Friday
The kids are all back at school, so that means September is just around the corner — next Friday, to be exact. We’ll be having an Oktoberfest theme for September’s first Friday, and AllSpice will stay open until 8pm.
Oktoberfest on September 1? We know, we know — having Oktoberfest on September 1 may seem a little premature. But when they do it in Munich (site of the biggest Oktoberfest in the world), Oktoberfest takes 16 – 18 days, and they serve 7.1 million liters of beer, and serve 119,000 pairs of sausages. We’ve got to get an early start, if we’re going to even make a dent in that record number.
We’ll be serving these tasty treats this First Friday:
- Warm, homemade Soft Pretzel Bites, served with
- Habañero-Beer Mustard, and
- Spicy Beer-Cheese Dip (noticing a theme here?)
Can’t make it Friday evening? Stop by anytime Saturday, September 2, and we’ll celebrate Oktoberfest all over again, with yummy pretzels and homemade mustards and dips.

We need a little Christmas, right this very minute. Yes, it’s only July, but we need a little Christmas now.
It’s time for another AllSpice First Friday party, and this month, we are going to try and beat the heat this summer by spreading a little holiday cheer.
Yes, this month, we’re having a Christmas in July party!
Break out your ugly Christmas… um, tank top, brave the humidity, and come hang out in our blissfully air conditioned store!
This Friday, July 7, we’ll be rocking out to our favorite holiday tunes from 5 – 8 pm, serving up good times, and great holiday food, re-imagined for your summertime pleasure.
Join us and sample these “holiday” delights:
- Spiced Ice Cream with Triple Ginger Cookie Pieces
- AllSpice’s signature Spiced Nuts
- Peppermint Popcorn Snack Mix
- Watermelon Cinnamon Punch
We will also be holding a small “holiday” raffle during the First Friday party, so be sure to stop by and drop your name in the bowl!
You can find any last-minute updates on our Christmas In July Facebook event page. See you Friday night!
This week has the First Friday for the month of June, and in keeping with the East Village tradition, AllSpice will be open this Friday night until 8 pm.
How do you follow a fabulous First Friday in May that was also Cinco de Mayo? In June, you host a First Friday Grill Fest!
Several shops in the East Village – including us – will be open until 8 p.m. The weather forecast looks warm and sunny, and we’re making some great AllSpice Cinco de Mayo-themed snacks to sample.
If we have any last-minute updates to the First Friday party plan, we’ll share the news via our Cinco de Mayo Facebook event page. Otherwise, just swing by after work, or pop in as you start your fun evening out.
We’re looking forward to seeing everyone!
Many of the businesses in the Historic East Village will be open late, and we’d like you to join us at AllSpice for a little potluck / cookout / tasting party from 5 – 7 pm.
We’re getting creative and calling it the AllSpice First Friday Grill-out.
Here’s how we’ll set the scene: We will have grills going from 5 – 7 pm, and will set up tables for a picnic/potluck out in the courtyard behind the shop.
Food: You: should bring your own meat or veg to grill. And if you’d like to bring some type of side dish to share, we would be delighted.
Drink: We will provide tea and lemonade. (If you’d like to bring adult beverages along, that is ok, too.)
The party plans are all weather permitting of course. If it is raining, we will let you know (if you have RSVP’ed to the Facebook event page), and postpone until another Friday. Right now, though, Friday’s forecast is looking like perfect cookout weather: balmy and dry!
Rory says: “We are super excited about the cook out this Friday and can’t wait to see you then!”
