After a year of publishing, we figured we deserved a night of celebration. Thus: A crowd of roughly 75 folks gathered to help the Heavy Table celebrate its first anniversary last week Wednesday at the Craftsman. Sweets Bakeshop brought the treats and gorgeous commemorative cake (above); Crispin brought some premium ciders including the newly released Saint.
Guests dined on Craftsman charcuterie and local cheese.
Editor James Norton (left) and Producer Aaron Landry made some remarks before cutting the cake.
Assorted food and beverages livened up the scene.
