Burgers at Interval? Why not?

The neighborly cafe at 1600 N. Jackson St., is embracing the spirit of hygge and celebrating the upcoming holidays with a very special patio pop-up.

On Saturday, Dec. 19 from 5 to 9 p.m., they will be hauling out the patio heaters and firing up the grill on the patio to host a toasty neighborly pop-up featuring delicious burgers and wine from the Interval shop. 

On the menu, you'll find a "Meat Burger" with dry-aged beef, Hook's 3-year cheddar, house pickles and secret sauce on a Troubador brioche bun as well as the "Vegan Burger" featuring a Troubador ciabatta roll piled high with a chickpea patty, black garlic cashew cheese, matsutake mushroom glaze, caramelized onions and mustard greens.

There will also be coffee (of course), hot chocolate, mulled wine, chocolate chip cookies and a variety of wines for purchase. The list includes: Joe Swick Wines Bring It!  (2019 red); Matic Mea Orange (2019 pet nat); Gaspard Bulles NV (sparkling rose); Constantabile Della Staffa Cigelio (Italian red, 2019); and Furlanii Antico Frizzantte (Italian white showcasing skin contact, 2019).

This weekend marks the last weekend of the year thatt Interval will be open. So, stock up on coffee, buy some wine (both are $2 off) and be sure to check out the other goods they have in their adorable corner store.

Interval will be open Dec. 20 through Dec. 23 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Dec. 24 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. They will be closed Dec. 25 through Jan. 1 to allow their employees time to rest and recharge.
