It’s the most newsworthy time of the year! We have so much to share that we launched this blog just to contain it all. Read on for news about holiday specials, a Thanksgiving collaboration with a Chicago pie powerhouse, and another big change to our website.
Fall and Holiday Specials
The holidays get our creative juices flowing, and we’re cooking up a raft of limited-time specials to celebrate the season. For November we’re featuring treats made with Apple Cider and Pumpkin ice creams, including the Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches on chewy oatmeal cookies shown above. Try them now before they’re gone!
And get excited for our December specials, which we’ll release after Thanksgiving. Four words: Jelly Donut ice cream. Also another three words: Eggnog ice cream. Boom.
Thanksgiving Dessert Pop-Up
Chances are if you’re a Chicagoan, you’ve heard of Justice of the Pies, which bakes its sweet and savory delights just across the hall from us at The Hatchery. We’re thrilled to know owner Maya-Camille Broussard, and even more so to be teaming up with her for an event on the night before Thanksgiving.
Preorder a pie from JotP and/or ice cream from Bartleby’s, then come to The Hatchery on Nov. 27 to pick up your order and enjoy a fresh apple puff pastry topped with a scoop of Bartleby’s ice cream.
Bartleby’s will also be selling pints of our pie-friendliest flavors to take home: Apple Cider, Cinnamon, Coffee, and Vanilla.
Details: Wednesday, Nov. 27, 6–9 PM, at The Hatchery, 135 N. Kedzie Ave. Parking is available in the lot on Albany Ave. between Lake and Washington. Preorder deadline for Bartleby’s is Nov. 25; deadline for JotP is Nov. 22.
New Ordering Site
We’ve taken our online ordering system to the next level with a brand-new store on Shopify. The site offers more photos, more descriptions, more payment options, and the ability to set your own pickup or delivery.
We think this site takes a lot of the mystery out of ordering from Bartleby’s, and we hope you like it! But we’re sure it’s not perfect yet. Let us know if you spot any errors or bugs and we’ll send you a discount code for 10% off your next order.
That’s all for now. As always, contact us anytime if you have feedback, questions, suggestions, custom requests, or book recommendations!
