Uncle Al Day

The Strib has declared today “Uncle Al Day” in honor of their food columinist Al Sicherman who retired last month. His last column is in the paper today. They’re throwing a little party from 5:30 to 7:00 PM, details under the cut.


All of Uncle Al’s fans are invited to a party to thank Al for the enjoyment he’s provided over the years with his Star Tribune columns. It’s an appetizer potluck (what could be more fitting for a Minnesota food writer?), with beverages provided.

The party is scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. today at the Van Dusen Center, 1900 LaSalle Av. S., Minneapolis. Park in the Minnesota Church Center lot (entrance on Pillsbury Avenue S.).

Gather up your favorite Al memory — perhaps a column saved or a recipe that became a favorite — and add it to the thank-you card that will be assembled at the party.

RSVP to c1900@sihope.com or call 612-874-1900 if you’re planning to attend. See www.buzz.mn for more information.
