Pumpkin Carving Happy Hour

Stop by the NoMa pumpkin patch on Thursday, October 24, and enjoy happy hour with friends and the cutest petting zoo in the city! Union Kitchen members will sell beer, wine and more: Running Byrd Tea (hot apple cider), Milk Cult (pumpkin ice cream), and Quickstep Catering (Asian 5 Spice Pulled Pork Sandwich and Edamame Wrap).

We are no longer taking reservations for pumpkins, but a small portion of unreserved pumpkins will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Come early and snag a pumpkin before they are gone! Carvers may bring their own carving tools.

Don’t want to get your hands in pumpkin guts? No problem! Hear Sam’O perform live music, and join a candy scavenger hunt for children starting at 5:30 PM.
