Drinking and learning on tap this week in food
Learning and drinking: two things we're not opposed to, especially when done together. If you feel the same way then this is your week. We've got classes, beer dinners, classes on making beer, and even an afternoon dedicated to healthy eating. Dive in.
Summit is the subject of a beer dinner on Wednesday
Hit up Amsterdam Bar & Hall in St. Paul for a Summit-themed beer dinner. The meal will be comprised of some Amsterdam menu staples as well as dishes made especially for the event.

Spend at Sunday making healthy choices at the MGM
Families looking for something fun to do should check out the Winter Market at the Midtown Global Market. Not only is there a Food Truck Fix brunch (nom nom) but FriendChip Farm will be on hand to entertain the tots. Kids can try their hand at the Nutrition Toss, Veggie Hopscotch, and Spin the Tail on the Cow before taking a break at the Farm's Kitchen Table to read books. As you've probably guessed, the FriendChip Farm aims to provide educational fun to help kids make healthy food choices. This free event runs 12-4 p.m., and parents can get free health screenings from the Minneapolis Heart Foundation while they're there.
