Big Bear Cafe dinner menus, Oct. 24 - 28, 2011

Here is this week's dinner menu.

Today is officially "Food Day" which is a part of a nationwide campaign to push for healthy, affordable, accessible food. This month we will be hosting a range of events surrounding Food Day, starting today, where at 4pm KCDC will be showing a short film that focuses on bringing attention to the wide range of food-related issues in the United States, from local food access to animal welfare to public health and community nutrition.

We also have something of a dinner theater this Friday, 10/29 with DC Improv Comedy.

Hope you all can make it.
