How snug was the seating? The already small church kitchen, which I found down a flight of stairs, past a walkway hung with racks of used clothing, and through the far door of a thrift shop, doubled as the dining room during the bazaar. Fortunately, the company was amiable, and the food was homemade — literally, by various ladies of the congregation in their own home kitchens. Stuffed peppers ($3); apricot cookies ($2).
