Slow Food DC and Poste Moderne Brasserie join together to host a Pig Roast to announce their new program the “Slow Food DC Snail of Approval” on Sunday, October 3 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The Slow Food DC Snail of Approval will be given to local establishments that exemplify the Slow Food mission: good, clean, and fair food.

At the kick-off event guests will enjoy samples of assorted roasts (pig, lamb and goat) provided by Eco-Friendly Foods and prepared by chefs Rob Weland, Barry Koslow, and Drew Trautman. The ticket price includes a tasting plate and 2 drink tickets for wine or beer. Tickets cost $25 in advance or $30 at the door cash only. Tickets can be purchased in advance by following the link below. Additional drink tickets will be available for purchase for $5 and all proceeds will go to Slow Food DC.

The DC Slow Food Snail of Approvals aim to:

• Recognize and celebrate eateries and artisans that serve/provide good, clean, fair food to our community.

• Spread awareness of the Slow Food philosophy and the establishments that support it.

All: this event has been postponed. Will let you know when the new date is set.

Really bummed to see this event was postponed, especially at the last minute. Was a reason given?

The new date is on a Wednesday (?) at 5:30pm (?) - why have a pig roast in the middle of the week, starting when some people are just getting off work (or not even finished with work), especially the day after midterms when government folks will likely be reeling? Maybe it's just me, but I like my pig roasts on the weekends, when gluttony can be enjoyed slowly :(

It's a big bummer. It was an unforeseen circumstance which is as much as I can say. I agree as far as the weekend being more convenient, but this is the date that worked the best for Poste and the chefs. Sorry :( We'll try to make best of it and make the event great.

BTW here is the permalink for the new date:
