A Party to Benefit Our Local Farmers: Join Me at the Blue Moon Bash!

Things are going to be a little quieter than usual around here for another few days. I’m in San Francisco celebrating the wedding of friends, visiting with others, and doing a bit of work for Bad Feather. The weather is warm, and following the cold summer here, something like spring fever is in the air. I’ve already had some great meals, and there are plans for food adventuring on the horizon.

In the meantime, I have some exciting news to announce. I’ve been working Steph Villani of Blue Moon Fish and a small group of wonderfully dedicated people to organize a benefit event for Ray Bradley and Kira Kinney. Remember the story about the flooding of the farms? These farmers (who are also our friends) are still a long way from recovering and we’re hoping to raise a ton of money to help them pull through to next season when they’ll be growing our food again.

The Blue Moon Bash ought to be one hell of a party, and a chance to hang with local farmers and fishermen at Southpaw in Brooklyn. We’ve got some awesome local restaurants contributing tastings (and Alex Villani will be making his famous Blue Moon clam chowder), there will be bands, raffles and of course, adult beverages. I’ve been working to design promotional materials and this week Brad and I launched a website where you can buy tickets, or make a donation if you can’t attend. I hope to see you there!
