november events

molly’s cafe had a moving experience in october, so now in november the normal molly’s cafe events are starting. here is a rundown of what is planned so far.

friday nov 6 molly’s cafe will host a fondue night, thanks to stefan, who brought cheese fondue from switzerland.  we did one last year and it was fun and delicious.  it is 25 lira prix fixe for fondue, salad, and dessert.  as usual, we will sit together family style and have dinner at 7:30.

molly’s cafe is hosting some of the istock photographers who are coming to istanbul for a workshop.  these people will take note of molly’s cafe in action, the local expat cafe in galata.  also, that evening, there will be a turkish traditional music jam session, hosted by nicholas, a canadian master of the ud and keman (violin). he will be joined by foreign and turkish musicians who play this interesting and enjoyable music. the music will start about 8 and end about 11.  come and have a light meal and some beverages while you are enjoying turkish music among turks and foreigners.

friday the 13th is our lucky day, as zack will be playing classic rock and pop as well as some of his own compositions at molly’s cafe.  customers can come early for a light meal and of course beverages will be on sale.  it will be a very mellow evening at molly’s cafe.

the next day, saturday nov 14th, eminent poet  john ash will read some of his poems from his upcoming book.  this will take place at 4:00 in the afternoon.   john ash is a very well respected poet and of course a regular customer at molly’s cafe.

i am still not sure what is on tap for the next weekend, but for sure we will have american thanksgiving at molly’s cafe on thurs nov 26.  this is also the eve of the feast of the sacrifice this year, so it is appropriate to have a turkey or two.  and i am proud to announce that molly’s cafe has cranberry sauce to go with all the rest of the trimmin’s. again, we will all be sitting together en famille at 7:30.  this dinner will be 50 lira, including drinks.
