In honor of Stockade Nights and a last-minute change of plans, Kingston Bread Lab will be in the kitchen Friday night making naturally leavened pizzas* to order, starting at 6 pm until sold out. Dine-in only, some come hungry (and thirsty!) and hang out for while with Christine, Billy, and the KBL crew.

Kingston Bread Lab will be serving up bagel sandwiches starting at 9:30, and we'll be giving out free gifts with purchase (while supplies last).
