Gluten-free beer tasting
Here’s some cheer for beer lovers who have found they can’t tolerate gluten: You might find a gluten-free brew to quaff in plenty of time for the Super Bowl. Huckleberry’s Natural Market, 926 S. Monroe St., will host a gluten-free beer tasting on Jan. 19 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the 9th Street Bistro.
You must be 21 and $5 buys you a flight of five gluten-free beers.
Other events in January include a mead tasting on Jan. 5 and port tasting on Jan. 19. There are more details at huckleberrys naturalmarket.com or call the store (509) 624-1349.
Perry Street Café closes
After six years of business, the Perry Street Café has closed.
Restaurant owners Geoff and Debbie White served the last meals there on Dec. 16. The phone number for the café now rings at the Perry Street Café in Cheney, 24 W. First St.
“It is very said. We’re going to miss it,” Debbie White said.
The couple opened the Perry Street Cafe, 1002 S. Perry St., just after they were married in 2006. They serve similar home-cooking style breakfasts and lunches at the Cheney café.
