Slow Food Austin has started its monthly happy hours again, after a brief hiatus. There is a happy hour this evening from 5:00 to 7:00 at Texas French Bread on 29th Street. There will be wine and locally sourced treats prepared by Texas French Bread.
If you are unfamiliar with Slow Food, it is an organization whose goal is to get folks to slow down, be aware of what they are eating and more importantly where it comes from. In these times of massive food recalls (380 million eggs recalled yesterday due to massive salmonella breakout), I think reconnecting with your food source is a good idea. I never have to check my food to see if it came from a “batch” that was recalled, since I get it directly from the farmer.
The event is free, but there is a suggested $10 donation. These happy hours are always fun and its a great organization!
