The mac + cheese cookbook available now!
Three years and thousands of macs later, we’ve turned our expertise into an awesome cookbook. It has all your favorite homeroom recipes, plus a ton of new recipes (like patatas bravas mac, shepherd pie mac, four-cheese mac and more).
Have you ever had a craving for mac+cheese? Has it ever hit you at an inopportune time—like when you’ve just gotten home after a long day, it’s hot, you’re tired, and you’re already sitting pants-less on the couch?
We know, it’s a hard life. And we’re all about making life easier.
So we’ve partnered with Caviar! That’s right, you can chow down on your favorite macs (see below about our awesome new special!) without even having to leave the house. Log into the app, click a few buttons, and by the time you’ve finally chosen something to watch on Netflix 45 minutes later, you’ve got mac+cheese and a homemade oreo on the table in front of you. Now through the end of the month, you can use the code FREEFOOD to get $10 off (almost a whole mac!), and delivery is only $1.99 if you’re close by.
Now, about that special—it’s that time of year again. The Pesto Mac is great, but it’s summery, and we’d like fall to hurry on up and get here; goodbye heatwave, hello decorative gourd season! We’re bringing in fall with a tangy BBQ Chicken Mac, with smoked cheddar, BBQ sauce, grilled chicken, and zesty red onion, topped with some crispy breadcrumbs and a bit of cilantro (for that extra freshness).
Just picture it: you’re sitting at Shoreline Park, relaxing on a giant plaid blanket (because fall). There’s a nice breeze, but your pumpkin spice latte (also because fall) is keeping you nice and warm. Your phone dings—it’s Caviar, and they’re around the corner with your BBQ Chicken Mac and side of coleslaw: a perfect pairing.
If that’s not heaven, we don’t know what is. Happy fall, y’all! See you soon.Read More
If you’ve ever come in to visit us, you may have noticed our nifty vintage library card catalogue sittin’ pretty on the inside wall of our space. The UC Berkeley Water Library was doing some renovations around the time we opened (what are the odds!), and we gladly took it off their hands—that’s why, you may have noticed, all the cards are water-related.
Anyways, you may also have noticed that it tends to get a bit…unruly in there. Many of you clever, clever people have marked your cards so you can find them easily; we’re sure a whole bunch of you keep them in your wallets so they don’t get lost in the madness.
However, a few weeks ago, we put up signs that we’d be looking at new loyalty programs for all you mac & cheese-loving folks, and we’re excited to announce that we’ve found one! We love it, and we think you will too.
It’s called THANX, and it’s super easy. Here’s the condensed version:
- Sign up with your email address.
- Register your credit card in the app (don’t worry, they never store your info!).
- Earn free mac and cheese.
That’s it. Through a bit of technological *~*magic*~*, when you buy mac and cheese with your card, the app automatically notifies you that you’ve progressed towards your ultimate reward: more mac and cheese, for free. That’s right—same as the stamp cards, after you get 10 macs (over the course of ten visits), we’ll give you a free one! No keytag to scan, no check-in to log, no hassle to you or us. It’s so perfect, they even wrote a blog post about our partnership! Plus, when you sign up, we’ll give you a free oreo or brownie, because we know change is hard.
Prefer cash? No problem. Just scan a quick pic of your receipt in the app, and the folks over at Thanx will manually adjust your progress.
It’s as simple as that. If you’re in the middle of your stamp card, don’t worry! We’ll keep stampin’ until either your card is full or New Year’s hits; after that, we’re clearing out all the cards and starting 2016 off in the right century.
