The harvest season conjures countless memories—the crunch of fallen leaves, the smell of pumpkin pie, and the melodious sound of a scarecrow belting out the blues. Summon seasonal feelings with today's Groupon: for $35, you get two tickets to the Harvest Dinners holiday party at City Roots Farm on Monday, December 12 from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. (a $70 value).
Guests mingle with crop cultivators in a verdant farm field at the Harvest Dinners holiday party, sampling bites crafted from locally sourced, sustainably cultivated ingredients. Executive chef Ryan Whittaker of @116 Espresso and Wine Bar pairs fresh produce harvested from City Roots Farm's fields the day of the event, with meats garnered from area producers, proving that, like delivering an ice sculpture depicting the 12 days of Christmas, it's best to go local. Pairs sip on specialty Christmas cocktails and hot toddies provided by Sydney Frank and American Harvest organic spirits while touring City Roots Farm's pastoral fields, filling their noses with the earthen scent of tilled fields and in-season mint, carrots, and sunflower microgreens. A cash bar dispenses sustainable beer and wine as well as hot toddies and cocktails, and country-blues group Whiskey Tango Revue serenades the crowd with songs about the one organic rutabaga that got away.
