Pollystyle's Rugelach named "dish of the week"

The City Paper's Young and Hungry blogger Tim Carman has chosen Pollystyle's pecan and cranberry rugelach as his "dish of the week."
We're so happy for Polly, who has been baking and delivering her pastries to Modern Times since our first year and wish her continued success. She's gotten press and much praise for her graham crackers in the past, but I feel her mocha pound and lime chiffon cakes are the best desserts we carry. She also prepares our granola - also loaded with cranberries and pecans and perfect for that "healthy" breakfast.
I'm planning on sitting down with her and doing a small piece for the blog, so stay tuned!

25th Anniversary Party!

To celebrate the bookstore's 25th year anniversary, P&P will be closing the parking lot all day Sunday, September 20th, to host a party beginning at 4pm. The coffeehouse will remain open throughout the day, and we will set up a table outside during the festivities, serving some of our specialty beverages (cold brewed iced coffee, Arnold Palmers, Agua de Jamaica, and Horchata) and the very famous Pollystyle cookies and desserts. Some of the other restaurants on the block will also be providing food, and DC's own Little Red and the Renegades will be doling out heaping spoonfuls of Zydeco and Cajun blues for those with dancing feet.
I'd discourage driving in that day, but, if you must, there's parking available along 36th St. or Nebraska Ave.
I do hope you can join us for this special celebration of community and history.
