Leftovers: Tidbits from the Food & Bev Community (7/31/18)

I created the "Leftovers" series to ensure I could share as much food and bev news as possible, so here's the latest:

  1. On Saturday, August 11th, Edmund’s Oast Exchange will host their one-year anniversary celebration. They will offer a store-wide sale featuring 10% off all goods. They will also have wine and beer tastings from noon until 4 pm focusing on sparkling wine and bottle conditioned beer. Tastings are free; no tickets necessary. Mobile ice creamery, Life Raft Treats, will also be on hand for a portion of the afternoon selling their frozen sweets.
