Free Thanksgivvukah Pop-Up Dessert Café At Union Station
Turns out Thanksgivvukah is not just something you slur when you've had a few too many cocktails on a Thursday night. This year it's an actual holiday that's gotten it's fun-to-say name because Thanksgiving and Hanukkah just so happen to fall on the same day in 2013. And the probability of that is like one in a gadjillion -- since we're making up words and all -- with the next instance happening in 2070.
To celebrate the combination of these two awesome holidays, Metro is hosting a pop-up dessert café, appropriately named Thanksgivvukah Café, on Tuesday, Nov. 26 during lunch hour at Union Station.
It's all part of Metro Presents, a culture and arts events series that recently launched here in L.A.. Artist and baker Sarah Williams, who we've profiled for her awesome pie company Fruit & Flour, will be serving up three sweets at the former Fred Harvey Restaurant. (There's a limit to one dessert per person, sadly.)
Offerings include a choice of Pumpkin Jam Sufganiyot, Rugelach Pecan Pie, or Cranberry Gelt Bavarian Cream. Those who attend also will receive a recipe card for the dessert they enjoyed to take home with them.
The pop-up runs from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. or until supplies run out at the Union Station Fred Harvey Room at 800 North Alameda St. in Downtown L.A.
