A lot of things are simmering away in the UrbanisMO kitchen and we can’t wait to serve them up piping hot in the coming weeks, as soon as they get ready.

A few reminders for Saturday:

1. We have limited seats available. To be exact, we can only offer a maximum of 30 seats plus a free-seating banig area. Please arrive on time to make sure you get a seat.

2. Please bring your own water bottle. While we’ll make water (and ice!) available at the venue, we won’t be providing disposable cups to minimize waste.
