Get to Know Your Head Table @ Pizza Antica
On Tuesday March 23, a group of Slow Food Delta Diablo members and leaders gathered at the cozy and sophisticated Pizza Antica in Lafayette. No big agenda other than get to know each other over some delicious artisanal food. I counted 23 happy diners of all ages enjoying wood-oven fired pizza and seasonal salads with a glass of beer or wine. Personally, I had the blood orange limeade which was to die for.
In attendance were local farmers, ranchers, CSA members, families, activists and even a few new faces. We hope to have more of these low-key social events peppered in between our usual fare of farm tours and fundraising dinners. This is in an effort to build a greater sense of community among our group which is now somewhere in the vicinity of 75 members. Kudos to Pizza Antica's manager Robert Sykes who graciously accomodated our boisterous group. Thank you Robert! And our own Gail Wadsworth for putting it all together including marking our tables with a cute stuffed snail.
