As I sit here, sipping this Summer Weizen Ale from Smuttynose Brewing Company and feeling a heck of a lot better about this work day, I’ll tell you reasons why you, my fellow suds lovers, should be drinking beer soon, too.

We’re thrilled to announce our fourth annual Eat Drink Local week, an eight-day locavore love fest for our foodshed celebrated by Edibles around the tri-state area. For one week, starting June 22nd, we urge you to show some love for our local food system by dining out, cooking in and enjoying local, seasonal ingredients.
Usually we’re advocates of device-free dining. But that was before the #eatdrinklocal Twitter stream started buzzing with pictures, recipes and farmstand tips on how our readers are eating, shopping and dining during Eat Drink Local.
Eat Drink Local Week has finally arrived and it’s going to be a hot one. So it’s your duty, really, to enjoy a bottle of chilled rose–one of our featured local ingredients of the week. In our Edible Guide you’ll find links to dozens of wine shops around the city where you can pop in a grab a bottle.
With Eat Drink Local Week just two days away, it’s time to stock up on our 8 featured ingredients and get cooking! Join us this Saturday as we kick off our week of local food fun at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket with cooking demos and prize giveaways.
Reserve your table now for Eat Drink Local Week at one of our partner restaurants and see what creations local chefs come up with for our 8 featured local ingredients: spinach, eggs, goat (milk, cheese, yogurt, meat, etc.), radishes, rose wines, porgy, fava beans, and hops. The possibilities are endless, but tables are not. Book yours in Manhattan, Brooklyn or the East End now.
As Eat Drink Local Week approaches–our week-long tribute to our foodshed begins Saturday, June 23rd–we wanted to introduce the sponsors that have helped us organize the event and also support local and seasonal eating year-round.
One of those is Brooklyn…
We’re thrilled to announce the following restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island’s East End will be participating in our 2012 Eat Drink Local Week, which begins in less than a month.
