What are you doing this weekend?

We are doing the most exciting thing imaginable - our taxes. Here are a few ideas that you might find slightly more appealing:

- Rock some tacky green duds at the St. Patrick's Day Parade which starts at noon on Saturday, marching first down North Street and south on Bedford then west on Main. You can see pictures from past events here.

- Check out two cool events at the Audubon Center in Greenwich. On Friday there's a Slow Food Potluck and Full Moon Hike from 6:30 to 10pm. If you bring a potluck item for between 4-6 people (local or organic if you can!) and pay ten dollars, you can enjoy a lovely evening of great food and a moonlit hike. RSVP by calling 203-869-5272 x239. On Saturday, there's a Family Bird Watch from 1-2pm. You can see birds that stayed local and those returning from warmer climates as well as help report numbers to the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. RSVP by calling Ted at 203-869-5272 x230.

- Fairway Market (699 Canal St) has a special event on Saturday. Food experts Peter Romano (Produce Director), Steve Jenkins (Cheesemonger), Tony Maltese (Seafood Director), Ray Venezia (Master Butcher), Benny Lanfranco (Master Roaster - aka, coffee!) and other food pros will be sharing their foodie know how and offering samples from 11am-3pm. For example, sweets to sample include cookies such as Chocolate Sea Salt, Dulce de Leche and Apricot. Demos, samples, all sorts of free goodies - what's not to like?

I forgot about the parade, tomorrow! Thank you so much for reminding me that I'm going to need to get to the gallery extra early so I don't run into all the traffic! :)
