Anybody who’s been around Ann Arbor for more than about five minutes has heard of Zingerman’s the legendary deli/bakery/creamery/coffee roastery/mail-order specialty food business/BBQ restaurant/all around purveyor of delicious edible things. And for good reason: In all the many things they do, Zingerman’s has serious chops.
The company is also well-known as a member of the Ann Arbor community, also for good reason. Their associated nonprofit, Food Gatherers does amazing work to, as their mission says, fight hunger where we live. From our perspective here at 826michigan, we know Zingerman’s as a friend to us in many ways–in the past seven years, Zingerman’s has done everything from donating pastries to our How To Write Like I Do workshops for adults to hosting our annual fundraising gala, the Storymakers Dinner, at the Zingerman’s Roadhouse to sponsoring innumerable events.
One of these events is a little thing you might have heard us mention once or twice…
At this SUPREMELY exciting event, Zingerman’s will be serving snacks (including wedding cake!)–and, perhaps more importantly (although, really, what could be more important than snacks), their support has been a major factor in bringing this sparkling Hollywood moment to 826michigan and we are extraordinarily grateful to them for that and for all the many other things they have done for us.
Zingerman’s is getting its own sparkling Hollywood moment in The Five-Year Engagement–Jason Segel’s character works there! See it for yourself on April 20 at the Michigan Theater–tickets available here.
