Just as you all are finally feeling less stuffed from the Green City Market BBQ, there's another event guaranteed to fill you up with the best in local foods. Slow Food Chicago's annual fund raiser is a pig roast at Goose Island. We've secured some hogs from Slagel Farms, and five area chefs are going to make it delicious. Event details below. Hope you all can make it. It's a great cause (and not too expensive to boot), and an outstanding opportunity to eat and drink well.
