Seasonal Special Happenings

Taste of Autumn at the Beachland

When: Mon., Sept. 19 2011

You can support local foods and dig up some good eats too at tonight's Taste of Autumn benefit for the Coit Road Farmers Market. Your $35 ticket gets you live music and samplings of savory tidbits from Superior Pho, Arts Collinwood Café, Sow Food, Umami, and personal chef Eric Wells, among others. Also on the menu: a raffle, a cash bar, and a chance to hobnob with television personality and slow-foods supporter Fred Griffith, who will be hosting the night's festivities. Proceeds will go toward keeping the non-profit market — and the local farmers who rely on it — in business during the slow winter months. It's all happening at the Beachland Ballroom from 6 to 9 p.m. Score tix by phone or online at the Beachland, or via the market's website. — Cicora 15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-383-1124, beachlandballroom.com, coitmarket.org.
