There is an exciting event coming up, that I’d like to encourage people to attend. I’m very much looking forward to it. Rather than just provide a link to this information, I’ve cut and pasted it from Slow Food Austin website. http://www.slowfoodaustin.org.

Take part in this delicious revolution while sampling palate pleasing artisan foods that are all “good, clean and fair.” Enjoy what makes our state taste great: from beers and breads, cheese and charcuterie, to coffee and tea!
