Green Plate Special is the great after-school/field-trip/camp program that gets local middle-schoolers into food-growing and cooking. Right now, Capitol Cider is making a special appetizer featuring produce grown by GPS students, and also serving a specially made Sixknot Cider infused with GPS-grown lemon verbena, and, finally, giving $4 from every $6 sale to Green Plate Special. And! Tomorrow, there’s a party from 6 to 9 p.m. in the anti-hot, awesome downstairs Capitol Cider bar with live music by the John Sinclair Jr. Ensemble, plus a drawing for a Green Plate Special produce box AND a Sixknot Cider gift package. Go eat and drink—it’s for the children! (Capitol Cider, 818 E Pike St, capitolcider.com, $6)
