We are terribly sorry to say that the PAUL “Pumpkin” carving that we had scheduled in our not-yet-opened Georgetown store for this Saturday needs to be postponed until next Sat. 10/29. We’ve just been informed by the construction contractor that he will not be finished in time to give us the keys for us to open our doors in Georgetown for a sneak-peek this weekend.
We are therefore rescheduling the 10/22 session for 1pm-3pm on Sat. 10/29.
NOTE: We are already alerting everyone who has RSVPed to us via email of the change.
If you could please just amend your articles to say that the sessions are:
Sat. 10/29 from 10am-12noon
Sat. 10/29 from 1pm-3pm.
Space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and specify your preferred time.
Last week, Haley and I went to PAUL Bakery in Penn Quarter to carve pumpkins from 2lb loaves of bread. Huge, delicious-smelling loaves of bread.
As part of their celebration leading up to the opening of their second location in DC, PAUL is hosting two bread pumpkin carving sessions for you. Both will be at the new Georgetown PAUL, in a newly renovated and restored space at 1078 Wisconsin Ave. NW – next to the Banana Republic store at the corner of Wisconsin and M St. The Georgetown store doesn’t officially open until November, so this is also a sneak peek of their new space too.
The upcoming bread pumpkin carving sessions are on October 22 and 29, from 10am to noon. The cost is only $15.00 per person + 1 child. For that, you get the giant, wonderful pumpkin-shaped loaf of PAUL bread, everything you need to carve your bread pumpkin and delicious treats and a drink to fuel your creativity. We especially enjoyed the macaroons, cranberry bread, pumpkin seed bread and lemon tarts.
The bread pumpkin is an adorable fall centerpiece. I can also say from firsthand experience that you can make some amazing French toast from it once you’re done enjoying it as a pumpkin. (And that glowsticks are available for $1 at Target and light the pumpkins up perfectly.)
Email email@example.com to reserve your space, and let them know what date you’d like. Availability is on a first come, first served basis. They’ll have room for about 20 people to participate in each session.
As we were leaving, we also found out that PAUL will soon be serving wine (it is part bakery, part patisserie, after all), giving you every reason to check PAUL out for brunch.
