Earth Day Meal at The Birchwood

Minneapolis' Birchwood Cafe, one of the Twin Cities' community supporting, local, sustainable food treasures (whose praises I've sung in the past), is hosting what is sure to be a fantastic Earth Day Beer Dinner. The 7-course meal includes pairings with Minnesota's finest artisanal microbrews, and will be accompanied by live jazz music. Here are the details:

I know what you're thinking: it sounds kind of like the best thing ever. I think so too. The cost is $75/person. I hope to make it. The Birchwood is located at: 3311 East 25th Street Minneapolis MN 55406 612.722.4474
