Texas Artisan Showcase – Slow Food Austin June 7, 2010

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.

Slow Food Austin

Texas Artisan Showcase

Date: Saturday, June 26th
Time: 4:00 – 8:00pm
Location: Space 12

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!  This family-friendly event will feature live music, a marketplace, silent auction, educational producer demos and a live auction finale by Dai Due Butcher Shop’s Jesse Griffiths you won’t want to miss!

For $60 ($55 for Slow Food members), you’ll get to enjoy 12 tasting stations, plus 6 more chances to revisit your favorites! Each station will serve a small “flight” of samples. Budget-conscious Slow Foodies have the option of a 12-punch ticket for $40 ($35 for Slow Food members).
