Seeds on your face, big disgrace, waving your bagel all over the place

Week of 1/19/19

Thanks to everyone who came out last week for Pizza and Wings. We sold more pizza than we have ever before and we sold out of wings in less than an hour! I truly love this community and your support and it makes me excited to do bigger and better things.

You can pre-order bagels (and bread) online They’re also a bit cheaper if you order them ahead of time and it guarantees you some bagels. Pickups start at 9:30 AM on Saturday.

Pre-order Bread or Signup for a share

Note We are closed the weekend of Jan 26th as 2/3 of the crew will be on vacation.

The week after though …

TOAST IS BACK 2/2/2019

We’re trying something new in two Saturdays and after the morning bagel grind, we’ll be transitioning into TOAST service at Rough Draft. From 3 PM onwards we’ll be slinging delicious ‘afternoon bites’ of toast and seasonal and varied toppings. These will be the perfect pairing for your beer or wine at the bar - a great snack with a drink before dinner. Or if you’re really in the mood, fill up and spend the night. Full menu coming soon. If this works out we hope to make it a weekly (maybe even daily?!?!??!) thing.

That will move into SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY


We’ll be moving right from Saturday to another evening of eats. This time before kickoff for the thing where the two teams kick and throw the ball down the field and there are lots of commercials! Whether you care about the game or not (it will be on a large projector) you can come to Rough Draft starting at 5 PM for Smoked Sausage Chili or a Vegan Chili, Wings, and Polenta Flatbread. It should be very warming, savory, and tasty. Hell, I would have made this at home for myself, but we’re kind enough to share it with you.

This Week’s Loaf: Seedy Wheat Pan Loaf + Oland + Upstate Levain + Baguettes


Note: No Country this week as the Levain has been much more popular these days and also I think the Oland pairs a little better with this cold weather.

  • Seedy Wheat is one of my favorite pan loaves. Its a hearty whole wheat bread with Sunflower, Flax, Sesame, and Pumpkin Seeds. I see it as a modern version of a classic hippy-seed-bread. Unlike the classic though, this is moist, easily sliced, and full of flavor. Its great with a strong cheese or a dollop of good butter.

  • Oland is a grain of Scandinavian origin that is now being grown and milled in Maine by Maine Grains. We mix it into a hearty boule that is becoming one of our favorite loaves.

  • Upstate Levain is our classic loaf with 50% local whole wheat (some of it fresh milled). Great for sandwiches.

  • If you haven’t tried our baguettes lately - you should. They truly get a little better every week.

Now Playing: Mr. Fingers - Cerebral Hemispheres

This album mocked recently by someone in the kitchen that this sounds like ‘NY1 intro music’. Little did they know that that is one of my favorite genres! This album produced by one of Chicago’s finest is just a great collection of chill vibes. Pairs nicely with these cold days!
