Gastro Non Grata's next event: dessert extravaganza Confection Carousel

If you have a sweet tooth, mark your calendars for Friday, April 20. Gastro Non Grata, the collective "chef-driven labor of love" headed by organizers Craig Drehmel and Jeff Mitchell has announced its next event, and it features a killer lineup of pastry talent.

Tunes will be provided by the Cactus Blossoms, Heavy Deeds, and Michael Gaughan performing as Little Dog on Top of a Big Dog, but who are we kidding? We care about the food.

So who will be furnishing the sweet treats that evening?
Three dessert courses will be coming from three celebrated dessert geniuses: recent James Beard Award nominee and duchess of hand pies Michelle Gayer from The Salty Tart, Dustan Pinlac of Cafe Levain, and Christian Aldrich from Haute Dish.

If dessert isn't enough to lure you out on a Friday night, GNG is also pairing each sweet course with a different beer from Lagunitas Brewery. Rumor has it that one of those beers will be a hard-to-find double IPA called Waldo's Ale. There's even a Dead Meat Door Prize with proteins provided by the Linden Hills-based Clancey's Meat and Fish.  

Tickets are $8 in advance online or you can buy them at the door at Triple Rock for $12.
