What are you doing Sunday?

Sunday next, if you're anywhere around the Twin Cities metro, I really encourage you to go to a Fork the Fire event... any of them really.  I'm friends with numerous Heidi's employees, had a great meal there earlier this year and really enjoyed going to Blackbird for brunch and lunch.  As you may recall... this shitty thing happened to them a month ago.

Heidi/blackbird fire


If you can't make it on Sunday, please consider donating to the relief fund.  A complete list of participating restaurants and donation details can be found at their website


Fire in the hood.  

I ran over to South Minneapolis yesterday afternoon after being alerted that Heidi's and Blackbird were going up in smoke.  Thanks to the wonders of the internet I was able to live blog the situation on the Heavy Table.  James Norton and I each wrote a follow up perspective which were published today.  Please keep all of the employees of the five neighborhood restaurants and shops that were affected by this devistating event in your thoughts.  Additionally, if you happen to know about any food related employment opportunities in the Twin Cities for stranded employees, give Stewart Woodman a shout.
