Garden slugs, green activists and organic food lovers will gather for cocktails from five to seven p.m. tomorrow night at Last Concert Café at a mixer sponsored by Houston Green Scene. Drinks will be followed by a dinner to benefit Last Organic Outpost's community gardening efforts.
The Living Off the Land Dinner series is held the third Friday of every month at Last Concert. The guest chefs are farmers, and the menu features organic vegetables grown locally. This week's menu from the folks at Emile Street Community Garden includes a spinach salad, a winter stew with kale, sweet potatoes and homemade sausage, roasted beets and carrots with blood orange and fennel dressing, rosemary tomato scones, and chile-chocolate cupcakes.
The Houston Green Scene mixer is free, and the Living Off the Land dinner is $20. Your donation goes to buy more seeds and dirt. To RSVP, call 713-931-6100.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
