Foodie Fun at Burpee ‘The Local’ Event

Right in Our Region:
What better place for a summer celebration of all things local, than on the Burpee Museum’s Riverview Terrace along the Rock River? On Aug. 16, from 7-11 p.m., local and area restaurants, breweries and wineries will take part in “The Local,” a “foodie” competition, with the winner being determined by attendees’ votes. “The Rockford area is home to many amazing restaurants, breweries and wineries, and we’re going to showcase some of them,” says MacKenna Atteberry, marketing coordinator for Burpee. “ At The Local, an area brewery or winery and a local restaurant will partner to create a special food and beverage pairing, using their own menus and brews or vintages.” Open your e-magazine now to learn more about The Local.
