On Sunday, December 21st, Sixth and I Historic Synagogue was converted into an Iron Chef cooking set. Sunday's live cooking demo featured Chef Spike Mendelsohn of Good Stuff Eatery and his guest assistants, his mother and two members of the audience. Chef Spike's recipes began with the classic potato latke made with a red potato base, as well as his "original yummy applesauce." Before the night was through, Chef Spike wowed the audience with some more original variations including sweet potato latkes, zucchini and feta latkes, zesty tzatziki sauce, rhubarb applesauce, and tropical mango applesauce.
The historic building in Gallery Place was almost sold and turned into a nightclub in 2002. Instead, Sixth and I now hosts a variety of cultural and social events for area residents. The festivities are truly eight nights long at Sixth and I. In addition to Sunday's cooking delight, the venue will be hosting Club Eight on 6th on Saturday, December 27th. For that evening, the Historic Synagogue will be converted into a swanky lounge and dance club, with dancing, menorah lighting, and a martini bar.
Greg's List Culture Editor salutes Sixth and I's work to preserve the city's landmark. We look forward to a variety of other cultural and social events in 2009!
