Swine & Wine Twilight Supper 2012 - Birmingham, AL

If you ever find yourself in the lovely city that I call home - Birmingham, AL - You simply MUST make time to dine at Little Savannah Restaurant & Bar.  Chef Clif Holt and his wife, Maureen, make it a not-to-miss restaurant in the "Magic City."  

Clif and Maureen have spearheaded a pretty awesome event here in Birmingham, that I want to share with you all.  It's the Swine and Wine Twilight Supper, which they created because of "a growing need for a collaborative chef driven event in support of Urban Farms."   For the dinner, the chefs will roast whole pigs overnight and whip up some amazing side dishes.  Then it will all be served as a big family-style meal.  Now, that sounds like my kind of party!

Swine and Wine 2012 is an event that I can't WAIT to attend this year!  It will benefit the Druid City Garden Project and will be held on Sunday, March 25th, 2012 from 5PM - 8PM.

A bevy of the most talented chefs from Birmingham...and around the USA...will convene to make the event extra special.  There will be outstanding food, wine and beer tastings, along with live music from the bluegrass band Lou Wamp & Swing Shift and a kids area with lots of fun things to do!

The chefs include:

I love that this even benefits the Druid City Garden Project (DCGP).  What exactly is the DCGP, you ask?  Their website explains it best...They are:

"...a community-based nonprofit in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, working to increase access to fresh, locally grown produce.  By reinvigorating vacant urban spaces with community garden plots, facilitating the development of school gardens, and implementing educational programs, the DCGP aims to reconnect Tuscaloosa’s residents to local food systems and educate the community about sustainability and healthy eating. With your help, the DCGP will act as a locus for community activity, cooperation and vitality."
