Pig Roast, Pickles, Tortilla Workshop, Other Good Things
Hailey told you about the benefit for the New Amsterdam Market this weekend, but if you can't make it, there's also an online auction, with proceeds going to the market, that's full of really great items. There's a kayaking tour of Blue Point and clam bake with Chris Quartuccio of Blue Island Oyster Company, a home pig roast with with Jacob Dickson of Dickson's Farmstand Meats, and dinner for three with Alice Waters, among other very appealing things.
The only drawback is that many of these very appealing things are quite expensive. Items with lower bids right now include a class on sustainability, certification programs and working conditions for coffee producers ($50), and a tour for four people at Stone Barns Center ($60).
