Capitol Cider is running their last “Green Plate Special” tomorrow, July 31, to benefit the youth gardening and cooking nonprofit Green Plate Special. The $6 gluten-free food specials will be made using produce from the organization’s teaching garden, located in Rainier Valley. Partnering with Methow Valley based Sixknot Cider, they will also produce a special cider infused with herbs from the garden. The event will feature live music by the John Sinclair Jr. Ensemble. No reservations required.
