Between Bites bridges the delicious overlap between eating and storytelling. Food memories shape our personal experiences. Special meals become defining moments. Words fill the space between bites. We wanted to create an ongoing philanthropic forum for food-inspired storytelling, featuring six local writers who cook, dine and chronicle their culinary lives and travels. The theme for our second installment of Between Bites is "Hot/Cold," and readings begin at 7PM.
Proceeds from this event will benefit a scholarship to be given to Kendall College on behalf of the late Jason Cevallos, one of The Dawson's beloved bartenders.
