Eat a fish to save a fish
Salmon season is open, the fish running back upstream as they have done for thousands of years, though that may come to an end. Why? The greedy hand of man. Bristol Bay sockeye salmon, one of the finest of the Alaskan salmons is the star of a special dinner we are serving on Prince St on Monday July 8th with Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food. The Bristol Bay ecosystem is threatened by the proposed Pebble Mine, an ecological disaster of a project that will extract precious metals for a few years and alter a vast ecosystem forever. I know, it’s the day after the holiday weekend but it’s the only day this summer Paul’s calendar aligned with ours. A portion of each ticket will be contributed to Trout Unlimited, the organization leading the fight against the mine. With wit and wisdom, Paul will sing the praises of sockeye and educate us about the proposed mine. Dinner is a five courses with paired wines. Tickets are $75 ($100 with tax, gratuity, and processing fee) and can be purchased on our website here.
