Fall Cider Feast - SOLD OUT!

**This event is sold out!**

Nothing says Fall more than a cider party, so come on down and celebrate autumn with us at our Fall Cider Feast! The brainchild of Lauren Friel, our sommelier, we'll be serving a six course meal, each course accompanied by a different cider, and we'll have two of the cider makers with us to tell you all about what you're drinking.

We'll be serving:

  • Good Life Cider pressed at the organic Good Life Farm in Interlacken, NY.
  • Eden Ciders will be sending its owner and chief cider maker, Eleanor Léger, to pour its ciders made from heirloom apples, harvested from orchards across New England.
  • Proper Cider will be here with one of its founders, Joy Doumis, pouring cider made from local trees.

I'm not sure what all six courses will be yet, mostly because I don't know what I'll feel like cooking that night, but I can guarantee that this will herald the return of the Spinach Spaetzle and I'll be premiering a brand new beet dish that night.

Six courses, six ciders, and limited seating, for $125 per person (tip included, but not tax).

Tickets are on sale now.

After this summer's insane inferno, I'm ready for some apples, some pumpkins, some cool weather, and Fall. I hope you are, too!

Every Monday Night starting 10/23!

The Great Canadian Beer Hall is back!

The Great Canadian Beer Hall returns! Because I'm a Canadian and I sometimes miss the motherland, every Monday night I turn Dirt Candy into the best Canadian bar in New York City. Starting at 5:30pm, we roll out the big screen TVs for the hockey game, and serve Canadian beer, cocktails, and food. There are Sneaky Dee's nachos, Moose Ears, poutine, fried maple broccoli, Nanaimo bars, Molsons, and more!

Monday, October 23 will be the first Great Canadian of the season!

Monday, Oct. 23 starting at 5:30pm

Great Canadian Beer Hall celebrates Gord Downie

On Monday, October 23, the Great Canadian Beer Hall returns and we’re using the evening to celebrate the life of Gord Downie, lead singer of The Tragically Hip, who passed away two days ago on October 17 at the age of 53 years old. We’ll be playing Tragically Hip on the playlist all night long, starting with their first album, and a portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund, Gord’s charity of choice, dedicated to reconciliation between Canada’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples.

If you’re Canadian, you know who Gord was and right now you’re hurting. Come be with us on Monday, and raise a glass to his memory.

If you’re not Canadian, you’re probably saying “Gord who?” Founded in 1984, The Tragically Hip are Canada’s house band, with nine number one albums. But that’s just part of it. The New York Times says of Gord Downie, “Imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Michael Stipe combined into one sensitive, oblique poet-philosopher, and you’re getting close.”

In a tearful eulogy, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke for us all when he said, “Gord was everyone’s friend. We are less of a country without Gord Downie in it. It hurts.”

Gord loved Canada, and we all loved Gord. So come down on Monday night and be together, share a drink, watch some hockey, and listen to the Hip.
