Soft Opening Invitation

Date: August 4
Time: 6:00pm
Where: Four Worlds Bakery & Kaffa Crossing, 4423 Chestnut

We are celebrating the Lammas Festival, an ancient pagan festival of the first wheat harvest. Basically, it's a celbration of the great miracle of bread; appreciating how it's no small matter that we have bread to eat.

So gather at 6pm. Pizza (some vegan) is going out at 6:30 sharp; and there will be lots of breads to sample and enjoy; and loaves to buy. It's not meant to be a whole meal. I'm only making a limited amount of pizza and when it's gone, it's gone. At 8pm we are showing the film "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the 1935 version.

Please check back here before you come, in case there are any changes. I will update here.

Kaffa is a BYOB, so feel free to bring any alcoholic drinks you might want to enjoy.

There is technically no charge for the event; although we are asking for donations for a non-profit (I will update that info later) West Philly Food Not Bombs, ; and it would be a nice sign of support for FWB and Kaffa if you bought some food or drinks at Kaffa; and a loaf to take home.

So here is the rub. To get to the bakery kitchen, one has to walk through the Kaffa Crossing kitchen, out the back, and into the bakery structure. Because Kaffa will be open and the staff at Kaffa will be working in the kitchen, we can't really have people walking through the kitchen, to and from the bakery. So we won't be showing the bakery. Hence, the soft opening; not the full blown grand opening. Please don't come expecting to see the bakery.

But please come and celebrate the "improbable" (I had to steal that word from Obama) existence of this bakery and cafe; good times; and a wonderful, diverse community of people who support both Kaffa and FWB.
