From the event organizer:

Join us for our largest fundraiser of the year, The 8th Annual Slow Down, a convivial evening of great food + drink + music, as we celebrate the 2019 Snailblazer honoree Naama Tamir, Owner of Lighthouse and Lighthouse Outpost. Naama is a fierce advocate and organizer for systems building surrounding sustainable restaurant practices in NYC.

The ‘Snailblazer’ award is a designation granted to those leaders in the farm-to-table movement committed to a local, sustainable, and fair food system. Each year we recognize the work of the next Snailblazer with a convivial evening of good food & drink, bringing together New Yorkers for one spirited evening.

This year’s Slow Down celebration will be a spring soiree like no other! Hosted at Lighthouse in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the evening’s festivities will feature music, wine, beer, a signature cocktail, silent auction with unique slow food experiences, and seasonal small bites featuring local producers & artisans.
