Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit 10/20/20 - 12/20/21 at 12:00 am

Kajak! A Virtual Exhibit

Inspired by the full-sized Nunatsiavut kayak given to the College in 1891 and on display in the museum gallery for over 50 years, this exhibit explores making and using traditional kayaks from Greenland, Labrador, and beyond. It features over 20 model kayaks and umiaks, as well as associated equipment, historic film and photographs, and the centerpiece of the exhibit, a full size replica of the 1891 Kajak created for this exhibit.
 
You can explore the full object-based exhibit, as well as various multimedia components, online. Recordings of lectures and other virtual events during the 2020-21 academic year will also be posted here, so be sure to check back.

The Brunswick Winter Market 01/23/21 at 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Brunswick Winter Market

Place your Pre-orders HERE for Saturday pickup

The Brunswick Winter Market is Back!
With Opening Day scheduled for Saturday, November 7th, there will be a definite COVID-influenced change in how we shop. With a number of vendors opting out of participating this season and some who will setup outdoors until the winter weather drives them inside, the look and feel of the market has been tweaked to accommodate safety protocols. Sadly, the vibe that helps make the Brunswick Winter Market such an enjoyable winter pastime will be missing: the live music, the sampling, sitting around and people-watching, will all be absent as the Market adapts to keep their space safe for vendors and customers alike. That being said, you’ll still be able to find (most of) your favorites ready, willing, and able to offer their incredible products.All those entering and exiting the market space will be counted with a limit of 43 customers in the space at a time, and will follow a strict directional path with customers exiting through the entrance doors.
We are excited about our coming market season and will see you there!

Willie & Chet's Food togo 01/23/21 at 5:15 pm - 7:15 pm

Willie & Chet's Food togo

We’ re pretty excited about these sammies. Banh Mis are delicious…if you’ve never had one they are Vietnamese in origin… meat (or not) on a baguette with pate (or not), mayo, sriracha and the best part (for me) thin crunchy pickles, cucumbers, jalapenos and fresh herbs.

They are uniquely satisfying hitting every taste and texture…soft, crunchy, creamy, bright, chewy, spicy, umami, salty, sweet, bitter, fresh…really just everything all piled together

Pre-ORDER HERE
 

Of course we had to play around with the traditional Banh Mi…each of these (of course) has a story behind them, long or short still a story is a story…our Banh Mi’s are a play in three Acts

ACT 1 – THE JEWISH DELI BANH MI

Once Upon a Time….. before cholesterol became a thing, Jewish Delis would serve a pastrami sandwich with a schmear of chopped liver on rye with a side of pickles and a bit of mustard.. it’s possible they still do but all the alte kockers who’d order them are mostly gone now. My grandfathers loved this sandwich. This was a sandwich you could make a meal out of.

We freshened it up, taking our cue from the original Banh Mi…switching out pork pate for chicken liver pate…roast pork for pastrami…some pickles etc.. you should try it, it won’t kill you* and maybe you’ll love it. ( I love it!)

*unless you have really high cholesterol then maybe you should go for the Tofu Banh Mi

ACT II – Tofu Banh Mi for Emily & Forrest

Emily and Forrest are my friends, they moved here from NYC, where they used to get Tofu Banh Mi’s. They are also parents of two of my favorite smalls – Frannie & Luke. They asked could I please make a Tofu Banh Mi and so I am.

Act III – Ira’s Char Sui Banh Mi

My father, Ira Sydney Waks (9/1/1943 -1/10/2012), was a man who loved a good sandwich. ( I may have mentioned him a few times. ).

We made this sandwich at our first Willie & Chet’s, I’ll make this sandwich forever. It’s a great freakin’ sandwich….His version was Chinese roast pork on garlic bread with duck sauce…but it has morphed in to kind of a Banh Mi—-the garlic bread is still there, so’s the pork…the duck sauce is mixed with sriracha, there’s a bit of mayo and a pile of pickles, cucumbers and herbs to round it out.
