August 2019

The Season of Bounty has arrived! It's hard to keep up with the array of summer ingredients available right now. Tomatoes, stone fruit, corn, beans ... and on and on. In the kitchens of Lark, Southpaw Pizza and Slab Sandwiches we are having a blast coming up with specials to highlight the best of this splendid season. The bison ribeye with charred leek and native blackberries on the Lark menu is pretty irresistible. Slab Sandwiches has been offering a lemon mascarpone tart with fresh berries (we all deserve an occasional afternoon treat). Over at Southpaw Pizza  the classic tomato salad with fresh mozzarella, basil and olive oil is perfect right now. Get your fill of summer!

Slab Sandwiches features weekly specials, like this lemon mascarpone tart with fresh berries. 

Summertime means festivals, and we're very happy to be taking part in two this year. Southpaw Pizza will be at THING in Port Townsend this weekend, serving food at the Night Market. THING offers music, literature, spoken word and, of course, delicious food. Our menu will offer flatbread sandwiches, something new for us. For now there are tickets still available - hop on over to their website for more details. Coming up on Labor Day weekend Southpaw Pizza will be at Bumbershoot, under the B-Eats Pavilion. Read details below!

If you're looking for a lot of fun a little closer to home come check out Trivia Night at Southpaw Pizza. Every Tuesday night at 7:30 a group of folks gathers - curious, competitive and hungry for pizza. Trivia Master Mo' comes up with a roster of questions that is equal parts entertaining and challenging. Bring a team of 2-4, choose a witty name and throw $2 per person in the pot. Winning team takes it all, but the real prize is a fun night out with good food and drink. See you there!
