Disregard the line up at this festival. If you can make it, you should definitely go and support a great movement. The Slow Food movement is one that can impact every person on the planet. If we take the time to find out more about where our food comes from and how it is produced, we can all make better decisions about what we eat. It is also about taking the time to enjoy your meal, even if you eat alone. From SLOWFOODUSA.com: Slow Food is good, clean and fair food. We believe that the food we eat should taste good; that it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and that food producers should receive fair compensation for their work, and that all people should have access to this good and clean food.

I thought by the headline on the main page it was Porno for Pyros. That would be sick!
