If you want to schedule a breakfast meeting in Kingston, or you want way more bread choices than “white, rye or whole wheat?” with your omelet, everyone knows that Deising’s is a great place to go. Places, I should say, since the cozy original Midtown location still stands, while the Uptown flagship restaurant/bakery keeps on expanding and sprucing up.
The Deising’s Bakeries have become cherished anchors of the Kingston Renaissance, offering authentic European-style breads and pastries and tasty meals for a full five decades now, run by the children of German-born founders Uwe and Ingrid Deising. To celebrate the family business’ 50th anniversary in high style and thank the community for its enthusiastic patronage, Deising’s is throwing a massive block party this Sunday afternoon. It’ll be held on the block with the coolest name in all of Kingston, Frog Alley – right across North Front Street from the Uptown Deising’s.
Billed as “Let Them Eat Cake!” the family-friendly event will raise funds for the Center for Spectrum Services, but admission is free, and so is the cake. In fact, a grand total of 50 cakes will be cut up and given away to all and sundry. Keegan Ale beer and Joe Beez catering will supply additional refreshments. Music will be provided by Alpine Squeeze, the Hudson Valley Youth Chorale and a deejay from WBPM. For the kids, there will be cupcake-decorating, face-painting, relay games and a performance of Hansel and Gretel by Theater on the Road.
The Deising’s 50th Anniversary Party takes place from 12 noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 27. For more info visit https://deisings.com/deisings-anniversary-party.html.
