So. There is this dream: a place that is a bar, bakery, and brewery, making its own unique hand-crafted beers that can be served to you with a bagel sandwich or some delicious pie, along with the usual bar fare of burgers, fries, and mixed drinks. There's a stage for music and other performances. The bakery opens early while the bar is mostly dormant, with breads, cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, sugar pearl waffles, and other delicious things; as the day wanes the bar picks up with unique beers, house-recipe mixed drinks, and bar food. The menu has a variety of items, including options for gluten-free, nut-free, and lactose-free items [edit add low-glycemic index to that list, courtesy of [personal profile] seventhe's reminder] that are also tasty, goddammit, and would be totally scrumptious to people without those allergies as well (and tasty vegan options!) — I refuse to believe this cannot be done and am already working on recipes for allergy-friendly baked goods.

[edit gluten-free beer u gaiz!!]

[edit [personal profile] chaosraven notes that a substitutions-friendly menu can similarly expand our range!]

Me and a few other people, [personal profile] seventhe among them, are interested in starting such an enterprise eventually — but part of this dream is to make a space that is accessible and friendly. This means as welcoming as we can be to all kinds of people, all genders, all abilities, as much as we can. I wanted to throw around some ideas I've been brewing for little things that make a place accessible.

Details! )

Anyway, those are just some preliminary thoughts! What do y'all think?
