Local Paleo advocates will come together to demystify the Caveman Diet and offer their individual farm-to-table approach. With speeches by butchers, chefs, and Paleo experts, guests will be able to enjoy a primal, health-focused menu while learning about the process and ideal preparation of a grass-fed, Paleo diet. The Paleo diet’s core values consist of returning to human nutritional roots in the Paleolithic Era. In honor of Spring, the all-Paleo menu will feature lamb from the Heart & Trotter and be a collaboration between Turquoise Cellars chef Taylor MartinFunk and Bare Bones Broth chef and owner Ryan Harvey. Guests will be treated to a lamb meatball upon arrival, and each course will be accompanied by wine pairings selected by Master Sommeliers. Last fall’s Turquoise Cellars’ Paleo event sold out.

Go-to post-bar staple wins every time
Burritos are tough to write about because they're not photogenic. That probably says more about what people want to read than it does burritos. But some nights, when the bar shuts down and a stomachful ...
