Eat Local Now! A Ballard Foodfest

These people really really really love Ballard.By definition, if you add the suffix -fest to a noun, it automatically makes it sound fun. I'm not complaining or anything, but it does seem as if -fest is being tossed around left and right these days. It does succinctly tell you what to expect though, and that is certainly appreciated in today's culture of marketing and spin (yes, this is a large part of my heretofore unmentioned mini-obsession with Snakes on a Plane, but this post isn't about that). Tonight Ballard is celebrating itself (or rather its food) with its Foodfest, hoping to inform the public on not only its cuisine, but the benefits of using locally grown foods. Sporting collaborations between local farms and chefs, the event promises not only wonderful food, but intelligent conversation as well. spanning_time supports both of those things, especially the part about food.
