Harvest Fest 2011 | Somerville Local First

This past weekend happened to be jam-packed with food, fun and friends. Well, technically that’s every weekend, but I guess this weekend was particularly enjoyable. It all started on Saturday, with an evening stop at Somerville Local First’s Harvest Fest, which I’m officially deeming the Best Fall Fest Eva until proven otherwise.

A fundraiser to support and promote all things local, the Arts at the Armory was taken over by craft brewers and eateries from the Somerville area for two four-hour sessions. Boston’s DJ Die Young made an appearance at the evening session, providing nothing but the best dance music for the entire night. The event itself was a food tasting extravaganza that went above and beyond any food tasting event I’d been to perviously. It was fully equipped with a photo booth, dance floor, entertainment from Boston’s Hoop Troop, and a live stream of their trending twitter feed that had everyone tweeting like woah to get their name up on the big screen.  

Selling out in record timing this year, the event proved to be a huge success. And for those of you who couldn’t make it (and we all know you wish you were there) check out my photo recap below.

Posto was serving up some delicious beet bruschetta

Along with some fresh stuffed canollis!

Foundry on Elm debuted it’s Saloon – a chicken liver patee served on a crostini with beet jelly.

The buttercream filled pastries from The Chocolate Tarte might have been my faves.

Tried some samples from Blue Hills Brewery for the first time. I approve.

Once the food ran out and the beer eventually stopped flowing, the dance party took over

Big props go out to  the hardworking folks behind Somerville Local First for putting on such a phenomenal fundraiser. I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for us this year!
