Five Things to Eat and Drink this Weekend in Metro Phoenix
Turn up the Lynyrd Skynyrd and head over to the Arizona Science Center this Saturday at 5 p.m. for a screening of Eating Alabama. Part of the Science Center's ongoing series, Chew on This!, Eating Alabama is a documentary about a young couple who reclaims their roots in Alabama with the goal of eating food in the style of simpler times -- locally and seasonally, that is. Suffice it to say, discoveries are made and lessons are learned as the film shines a light on topics of community, the South, and sustainability. Admission is free and local slow food advocates Natalie Morris (Good Food Allies) and Maya Dailey (Maya's Farm) will lead a Q&A session after the show.
