eat local, drink local...all week long.

first of all, i must begin this post with a huge apology. i have to apologize for the fact that it's already tuesday night and i am only just now telling you about vermont's very own eat local week. oh the shame i feel, i can't even tell you.

but, luckily, there are tons of great events all week and most of the good stuff is still ahead of us! i hope you can all find it in your hearts (and stomachs!) to forgive me.
