Throw a Pi(e) in the Face of Cancer!

Throw a Pi(e) in the Face of Cancer!

Locally owned Sweets So Geek and Young Professionals for the American Cancer Society (YPACS) will be hosting a charity art show to help fund cancer research and the Live Bold fund created by the Fort Wayne Small Business Owner’s Association in honor of local entrepreneur Lindsey Hively and other business owners who have left us too soon. On March 12th, the Saturday before Pi Day, Sweets So Geek will be displaying and auctioning pie pans that were passed out to area artists (including the Komets and the Mad Ants) with the instructions to “make art.” This art will both be a celebration of local creativity, a quirky fun celebration of Pi Day, and once sold, will benefit two great causes. An auction will also be held for the right to throw a whipped cream pie in the face of local celebrities! The target will be able to bid against everyone there to avoid taking the pie in the kisser! The show begins at 6:00 pm, and all art will be sold via silent auction ending at 9:00 pm. All proceeds will go directly to the American Cancer Society and the Live Bold fund. The entire community is invited to come out, bid on one of a kind art, and enjoy a fun and unique event. If unable to make it to the event, donations can be made directly to the American Cancer Society through the Relay For Life of Fort Wayne under the YPACS team. Sweets So Geek will also have Pi Day contests, awarding the customer who can recite Pi to the farthest decimal with a full pie and their name engraved in a trophy pie pan, to be displayed permanently at the store. There will also be music entertainment from School of Rock, a cash bar by CS3’s, live art being created, Pi(e) themed desserts, and more! Visit the Facebook event for updates!

Dining Al Fresco – Calhoun Soups, Salads, and Spirits

Welcome to this month’s edition of Dining Al Fresco where we spotlight some of Fort Wayne’s locally owned restaurants offering an outdoor dining experience. This week’s spotlight is one of my favorite downtown lunch spots, Calhoun Street Soups, Salads, and Spirits. More widely known as CS3, the restaurant identifies itself as Urban Dining, which describes it perfectly. It’s nestled on South Calhoun Street on the corner of Masterson and Calhoun in an up-and-coming neighborhood that many now call “SoCal.” Exposed brick in the interior gives a warm and inviting first impression, while woodwork makes the restaurant feel historic. The Americana artifacts and antiques add to the equation pulling it all together to create a unique setting. The fenced-in patio offers a beautifully landscaped outdoor experience with plenty of shaded and sunlit seating that gives the feeling of a friend’s private courtyard. CS3 goes far beyond soups and salads with a wide array of menu options. While their soups and salads are superb, they also offer some amazing sandwiches and much more. At CS3 you can satisfy almost any craving from wings to veggie burgers. A surprising quality of the restaurant is the all-you-can-eat salad bar whether it’s added as a side to your meal or stand-alone. The restaurant offers a full bar with an impressive array of craft beers from local and not-so-local breweries. With almost 20 taps and a selection of bottled offerings, you can expect to find something new almost every time. After dark, the restaurant continues to thrive. CS3 offers a great local nightlife where you can stop in to see familiar faces and new ones alike. A back room venue, dubbed the “Tiger Room” by some, offers an eclectic selection of entertainment. Most weekends you can hear live music thrumming from inside, whether it’s local folk artists like James and the Drifters or some serious house music from out of town DJ’s. CS3 is a must for anyone who enjoys a local heartbeat, whether it’s lunch with a friend or a night out on the town. This is definitely a gem in SoCal and downtown Fort Wayne. Suggested Drink Anything On Tap: Be experimental, try something new, or find your favorite and enjoy! Suggested Eat BBQ Cheddar and Bacon Burger: A burger with bacon and cheddar cheese cooked to order, topped with BBQ, grilled green pepper and onion, all served on a pretzel bun.
