For the Holiday Weekend (& beyond)

Mela FlyerLast year, 75,000 people attended the annual IndoAmerican Fair held in Mercer County Park.  This year’s fair takes place on September 5 & 6, 11:00am to 7:00;pm, in the same location.  The fair is a kaleidoscope of colorful crafts and other artwork, music, Indian food, and Bollywood-style entertainment.  This is a great event for the whole family; admission is only $2.

And if you’re looking for something to do on Labor Day, here are two options:

1. Remember our local pot-luck picnic Eat-In to build awareness of the need to get good, whole, foods into our nation’s school lunches (a topic I’ll be revisiting in my September 11 In The Kitchen recipe column).

2. For the grown-ups, how about the Wines of Burgundy dinner at Blue Point Grill put on by the CoolVines wine shop in Princeton?  There are two seatings, 5:30 and 8:00pm.  The dinner, with the wine pairings, is $85.  The menu sounds amazing, with smoked salmon, oysters, octopus, barrimundi, and silver trout.  The wines include both whites and reds, plus a Cremant Rosé at the start.  Buy your tickets (in advance!) by calling the restaurant at 609-921-1211, or on the CoolVines website.  I went to their Domaine Agape seafood dinner there in July, and it was a lovely time with excellent food and wine.

Fast forward to September 12  (6:00-10:00pm) for a Farmers Against Hunger fundraiser at Terhune Orchards (Cold Soil Rd. site).  Tickets for the Low Country Barbecue and Square Dance are $75 in advance, $85 at the door, and available at www.farmersagainsthunger.com.  Boy, that sounds like fun!
