Slow Food Foothills holds mid-winter pot luck at The Purple Onion

Published 9:23am Tuesday, February 12, 2013

The good news is that Punxsutawny Phil didn’t see his shadow, but the winter chill just won’t let go. Join Slow Food Foothills for a warm and wonderful mid-winter potluck gathering at the Purple Onion on Sunday, Feb. 17 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.

Bring your best comfort food. Those attending are asked once again to bring their own place settings and a description of his or her dish, noting anything local. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.

The Purple Onion offers a variety of ethnically and regionally inspired dishes. Owner Susan Casey takes great pride in offering the community the best in locally raised trout and organic, locally grown produce as well as a wide variety of live music.

Casey is graciously opening her doors for this gathering to help chase away the winter blues.
