    That lamb slider… I think it was Claremont… yum… I had a blast at this event.  Congrats to all the local indie restauraneurs.

    If anyone who missed out wants to go to a very similar event this week, The North Market Apron Gala is on Saturday night! :D It’s also a fundraiser, same entry fee, and all-you-can-eat-and-drink private party afterhours at the North Market! Fun!

    I’ve got tickets to sell. Send me an email at walkerevans@columbusunderground.com if interested!

    Event: Taste of the Independents 2009
    Author: swampkitty05

    May is definitely a busy month for foodies, with several events all taking place within days of each other. The first of these we attended was last Thursday’s Taste of the Independents, an annual fundraiser that benefits Dine Originals Columbus. We were lucky enough to attend last year, so we’ve been looking forward to it for months now.
