In case you're not aware, it's Slow Foods week right now. With that come a number of events focused on locally produced, "slow" food.
While the local chapter Slow Foods Glades to Coast is hosting a number of events and partnerships, some other localcentric events will be going on as well.
This Friday, the Sybarite Pig will host its own Eat & Drink Local with Jim Wood from Palmetto Creek. The dinner will feature local beer and local pig.
