Socks in their Stockings!

Socks are one of the most often requested items at homeless shelters. Good, clean socks are essential to people’s health. Sadly they’re an item with so much demand that shelters have trouble keeping up!

For the second year in a row, the Attic is teaming up with Kavarna Coffeehouse to collect socks for those in need. Last year, we collected 100s of pairs, which Alex and Linda then distributed to NEW Shelter, St. John the Evangelist Homeless Shelter, and several others. Help us do it again!
From Thursday, December 14, to Sunday, December 17, bring new, clean, practical socks to either location. Share the warmth this winter!

Sweet Dirt Acres

Stop by the Attic every Saturday morning (that no winter market is taking place at the KI Center!), 8am-noon, to check out what Keith has brought from Sweet Dirt Acres! This family-run, all-organic farm located near Seymour, WI, has a wide selection of produce, eggs, chickens, pork products, elk, canned goods, and more!

New Leaf Winter Farmers’ Market

The winter market is back at the KI Convention Center for the 8th year in a row! The next market will be Saturday, January 13, from 8am-noon! Make sure to stop down and stock up on produce, treats, coffee, and more!

Holiday “Dinner” Sandwiches!

Made with juicy fresh cranberries from Sweet Dirt Acres, our holiday dinner sandwiches offer a medley of wonderful seasonal flavors! Choose between our holiday turkey, served with provolone cheese, spinach, and our homemade cranberry cream cheese, or holiday ham, served with cheddar cheese, spinach, and our homemade cranberry mayonnaise. Both options come on your choice of Great Harvest bread, with pickles and chips on the side.

Yummy Pup, LLC

Seasonal Cream Cheese

Last year’s popular addition to our cream cheese line-up has returned! This flavorful, homemade cranberry cream cheese has just a bit of a tart kick, making it a delicious addition to a variety of bagels, both sweet and savory.

Pulled Pork Sandwiches!

Does the gradual shortening of daylight hours have you down? Stop by for lunch at the Attic– one of our pulled pork sandwiches is sure to have you smiling again!
Served on a toasty, buttery ciabatta roll, our plain pulled pork sandwich features smoky pulled pork, fresh sliced onions, provolone cheese, and zesty herb butter. Looking for an option with more zing?The BBQ pulled pork sandwich substitutes the herb butter for a healthy slathering of Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce! Both sandwiches are served with pickles and your choice of blue corn tortilla chips or Ruffles potato chips. Call-in and to-go orders are available!
