Does the city need another bakery? Some may say no, but many would go out of their way to make room for Bakery Lorraine. Having enjoyed a presence at the Sunday farmer's market at the Quarry* for months, Lorraine just opened a permanent residence at 511 E. Grayson. In addition to the usual breads, pies, and muffins, the shop also has macarons** in flavors like coffee, lemon, and dark chocolate black currant. Reports back on the pastries have been enthusiastic.
Looking for a family- and pet-friendly food event in a spectacular setting? The Second Annual Farm to Fork at Phil Hardberger Park will bring local chefs to cook locally-sourced meals in the park from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The event will be near the Northwest Military Drive entrance to the park. Tickets are $40 for adults, $30 for park members, and $10 for kids 2-10 years old (the wee ones are free!). Get your tickets at philhardbergerpark.org.

*** And to answer the reader who rightly called us out on two errors in an admittedly very short space, yes, we are ashamed and we will struggle with most of the fibers of our beings+ to make sure such a thing does not happen again.
+ Not to be coy, but there is, after all, the other 10 percent of life that is not work.
