Starting tomorrow Tortuga Music Festival will be taking over Fort Lauderdale. Artists ranging from Grace Potter, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, and G. Love and Special Sauce to Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Avett Brothers, and Kenny Chesney will be playing right smack dab on the beach.

Although not everything is local all of the time, Morforgen does work with purveyors that work with sustainable seafood.
