Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 183: Farm to Fork Gala Dinner

The final event in this year's Farm to Fork Festival is a Gala Dinner that takes place on the Tower Bridge:

The Gala serves as the Farm-to-Fork Celebration’s finale, with hundreds of diners enjoying a locally sourced dinner on the Tower Bridge. Guests at the family-style dinner will be treated to a feast prepared by more than 30 top area chefs, led by Chef Jason Poole of the Hyatt Regency Sacramento and Chef Brian Mizner of Hook & Ladder. Proceeds from the dinner go directly to fund the free Farm-to-Fork Festival on September 27th on Capitol Mall.

My running route this morning was around Raley Field in West Sacramento, so I saw some of the initial set-up for the dinner near the Bridge and also along the Promenade near Embassy Suites, which apparently is the location for dessert.

Here's a photo of the first Farm to Fork dinner from last year:

I'm sure it's a lovely event, and I'm very glad the proceeds go to support the free Festival that happened yesterday on Capitol Mall.  I actually rather like the fact that the roadway gets closed down for a person-centric event and that cars (and their drives) have to find an alternate route for several hours this evening.  What a great way to utilize the community space and truly celebrate our region!
