Makeda & Mingus Curry and Cider Pairing Dinner

Seattle Friends! Join us for a dinner & cider pairing on Thursday, December 14th at Makeda & Mingus. Limited seating, reserve your spot here. 

As many of our Seattle area customers know, Makeda & Mingus is a generous partner of ours. Prashanthi's community space & cafe in Greenwood is where customers can pick up their cider orders from us. Prashanthi and her team serve some of the best coffee in Seattle (the cold brew options are A-1!); plus serve beer, wine, and cider. They also frequently host hand crafted products for sale from local makers and artists. 

Each Thursday, Prashanthi serves homestyle South Indian curry dinners inspired by her Grandmother's recipes (minus the cayenne). The blend of spices and flavors pairs really nicely with cider, and we've selected a couple options for you to enjoy with your curry dinner. 

Bonus Offer: Add any ciders or cider bundles you like to your order and automatically receive 10% off. Pick them up at Makeda & Mingus same day as your dinner!

Food details: Each dinner order is $25 and serves 2 people (or 1 person + great leftovers to go). Each order includes 3 homestyle curries, rice, and Naan. Your Thursday dinner plans are covered! 

Cider details: We've selected two ciders that pair great with Prashanthi's curries. Select one or both bottles to go with your dinner when you add this to your cart (below). The current featured ciders are: 

  • Lassen Cider's Pleasant Valley Melange (750 mL bottle, $19): A semi-dry cider with noticeable but balanced tannins and acidity. The slight sweetness and mouthwatering acidity contrast the rich curry flavors really well. A slight barrel note from the cider also compliments the spices in the curries. A great bottle to share throughout dinner. 
  • Liberty Ciderworks Gravenstein Cider (500 mL bottle, $12): A highly refreshing cider made 100% from Gravenstein apples. This dry cider also goes great with your dinner, and would also make a refreshing post-dinner option. Floral with notes of green apple, sweet meyer lemon, and a very slight honey-like sweetness. 
  • Additional Cider Tasting: We will also be bringing a few fun bottles of cider to share with folks. You can do a guided tasting before or after your meal, or simply sit with us and sip & chat cider. 

Event / order details: Dine-in and enjoy the dinner & cider at Makeda & Mingus, or take it to-go if you. The dinner service is available from 5:00-8:00PM each Thursday. For planning purposes, please pre-purchase your meal & cider here via our website. Walk-up orders will also be available but may be limited. Simply select your preferred option(s) below, add to cart, and check out.

If you want to join us for the additional cider tasting before or after your dinner, be sure to add that item to your cart separately before checking out. 

  • Shipping available across U.S.
Regular price $44.00

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping a 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We don't recommend shipping during periods of extreme weather. If your area has weather of concern, please contact us and we can hold your order. 

We can usually accommodate rush requests for delivery or pickup. Please e-mail us at or call/text us at (206)395-4008.

We offer home delivery of cider orders for customers in the Seattle area, including the east-side. Someone 21+ must be available to accept the delivery. We will be flexible in scheduling a delivery that works for you. Most deliveries are made within a few days of the order being placed.

Orders can be picked up for free at Makeda & Mingus, a coffee shop and community space in the Greenwood neighborhood. They are open everyday from 7AM-5PM. Orders are made available for pickup within 1-3 days.
