Get into the holiday spirit with a meal and get in a little shopping while you’re at it at Prairie Grass Cafe (9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, December 2). “Enjoy a look and chance to buy Dan Sviland’s holiday hand-blown glass gift collection,” says Prairie Grass Cafe co-owner/chef Sarah Stegner.

Art glass lovers will be thrilled at the unique hand-blown glass gift items including vases, bowls and coveted glass ornaments for holiday gift-giving. Artisan Sviland, co-owner of Hot Shop Glass, a state-of-the-art glass blowing studio and gallery in Racine, Wisconsin, is the former longtime manager and mixologist at Prairie Grass Cafe.
 
Plan a pre-holiday get together. The brunch menu specials include Maine Crab Benedict on a Toasted English Muffin, Poached Eggs with Spicy Hollandaise Sauce ($18) and Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes ($12).
 
As always, the regular brunch menu also will be offered. Prairie Grass Cafe favorites include the Local Omelet, with farmer eggs, River Valley Ranch mushrooms, and Capriole Farm goat cheese ($11.50); Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with maple syrup and whipped butter ($12) or topped with raspberry sauce and Crème Anglaise ($17); and Ancho Marinated Skirt Steak with two eggs any style, breakfast potatoes and choice of toast ($27).
