|National Jerky Day is June 12|
In honor of National Jerky Day (that's today for those of you who didn't already have it on your calendar), Jack Link's, now one of the "fastest-growing meat snack manufacturers in the world," has created an all-jerky portrait of Sasquatch, the creature featured in its current ad campaign.
With its idyllic location next to one of the best farmers markets in the Twin Cities, perhaps no museum is better suited to hosting an exhibit on "the unique confluence of community aspiration, cultural exchange, and economic activity popularly known as farmers markets" than the Mill City Museum. The "Growing Strong" exhibit is being kicked off tonight with a reception at the museum from 7 to 9 p.m., which will feature live music by Light of the Moon, hors d'oeuvres by D'Amico, and a cash bar.

This is the time of year many of us take stock of the things in our lives and make some decisions about what should stay and what should go. What better time to slough off your old, tired magazine subscriptions and usher in some that are shiny and new? The Hot Dish got a peek at a beautiful magazine that just made its debut this month from Stampington and Company, which publishes such mags as Where Women Create and Somerset Studio. Their latest addition is called Where Women Cook, a quarterly magazine dedicated to women "who are passionate about all things food."
The only thing more fun than eating food is reading about it
