Slow Food Happy Hour
Tuesday, August 21st, 7-9pm
Every two weeks NYC slow-foodies (a.k.a. locavores, conscious carnivores, farmers market junkies, what have you) get together to drink conscious cocktails and mingle at Slow Food’s Slur.
With this week’s Slur held at Bell, Book, and Candle, the cucumber in your fresh cocktail will probably be fresh from the restaurant’s own aeroponic rooftop garden, as 60% of the restaurant’s ingredients grown right on the premises. Slur will congregate in the bar area to the left, where $1 oysters will be available.
Bell, Book, and Candle, 141 West 10th St. (btn Waverly & Greenwich), Manhattan. bbandcnyc.com
