We are taking your traditional Farm-to-Table dinner and adding a few twists. Instead of just taking the vegetables off the farm, we are bringing the farmers from Bluestem Farm to your dinner table. Farm-to-Table Fridays is a celebration of fresh produce, local meats/fish, and BEER! So not only will we prepare your farm fresh entree in front of you at our Everett's Action Station, but Short's Brewing will be here to pour you a beer while we cook it. Each participant will also receive a Day Pass to Solace Spa, valued at $35!
