Here we go, it’s open season!
Cress Spring Pizzeria will be serving them up on Wednesday, May 4, from 4:30 pm until 8:30 pm.
Here’s how it works. Every Wednesday evening from May until October, we'll be selling flaming hot pizzas and delicious desserts, beer and wine, here at Cress Spring Farm. Picnic on our lawn or take your pizza to enjoy at home. Outdoor seating only - you are welcome to bring blankets, lawn chairs, and warm friends to snuggle with. You should also bring whatever plates, cutlery, etc. that you might need for your picnic. Pizza will be served in boxes, beer and soda in bottles and wine by the bottle or glass. We will have mason jars available for wine, but we encourage you to bring your own. You may supplement your picnic with any salads or other food you wish to bring, but we ask that you not bring your own alcohol. We accept cash, checks, credit cards, and chickens as payment.
We feature live music every Wednesday, and our guest this week, all the way from Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, is Bob Weinswig. I’m offering a free pizza to the first person who tells me which former Madison restaurant Bob was part owner of.
New for this year, we’re offering appetizer baskets, so you don’t have to gnaw on your arm while waiting for your pizza. And for dessert, we’re whipping up some pudding. Get some!
Our menu for this week is below, and it's also posted on our Facebook page.
We hope to see you soon!
