Being a grown-up is hard, but at least there are a few benefits. Like, we could totally dessert for dinner if we feel like it. So there!
Another entrant in Portland's ever-expanding pop-up scene is giving us every excuse to indulge this perennial childhood fantasy. On Thursday Oct. 23 from 7:30-9:30 p.m., Morgan St. Theater pop-up dessert club is collaborating with Pairings Portland Wine Shop in Northeast Portland for a multi-course "dinner" of desserts themed "A Night at the Opera." The menu will include:
- Acero e Polenta: Maple ice cream, brown butter polenta cake, poached pear and pine nuts
Zucca Squish: Acorn squash sorbet, hazelnut, blue cheese, sage oil
- Tiramisu: Mascarpone ice cream, nocino, ladyfingers, cacao nib
A flight of Italian wines will accompany the meal, and local singer Amanda Taddeo will sing live opera.
Cost is $35, which includes wine and live music (gratuity not included). To reserve a seat, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
