at the market, this week's menu and a field report

By Sunday, June 06, 2010 , , , ,

As I mentioned earlier, I was scheduled to volunteer at REAP's 3rd annual Burgers and Brew event at Capital Brewery on Saturday. Well, if you live in Madison, you will have experienced the deluge that was unleashed from roughly 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Saturday ... right around the time the event was going on.

Now, I thought that I would show up at my shift that started at 5 p.m. and there would be 1) no there and 2) nothing to do. Boy, was I wrong. The place was hopping, the reggae tunes were flowing, people were eating and drinking and chefs were cooking up a storm. And that didn't stop until most of the tents ran out of food. I was supposed to be a "runner" ensuring that tents had everything they needed, but about 45 minutes into my shift I was asked to pour beer at Lombardino's tent, which was very fun. I came home soaking wet from head to toe, but I must say the event was great, the chefs and volunteers were amazing considering that they were cooking in torrential downpours and the attendees -- you guys sure know how to have a good time no matter what the conditions!

Before the weather deteriorated, here's what we found at the Westside Farmers' Market:
