Not much local news to speak about, unless you like food. Oh you do? And drink too, in copious amounts? Well then, here’s a few things that may be of interest. First of all, a great local eating event takes place every few weeks over at the LIC Grange rooftop farm on Northern Boulevard.1 It’s called the Butcher Paper Dinners, and each one features a different chef and menu. Think Foodies Gone Wild in a cool setting. There’s a special benefit farm-to-table one on behalf of City Growers next Saturday, July 19 from 6-9pm. Next up is an LIC food tour, which will make stops at six local venues. Finally, the LIC Partnership is holding a networking night on July 23 from 5pm-7pm at LIC Landing featuring open bar and hors d’oeuvres. Open bar, lotsa food, as a grizzled old journalist I welcome the challenge of eating and drinking my way back to even. In this case times three.
