Tamworth Inn 'too far gone' to save
By Tom Eastman
TAMWORTH — Long a landmark in the village, the Tamworth Inn has been sold and now awaits the wrecking ball.
Plans for the site are not yet set in stone, but could include a distillery, notes the new buyer, Philadelphia ad agency executive and part-time Tamworth resident Steven Grasse, 46.
Owner of Quaker City Mercantile of Philadelphia, Grasse is also a marketeer of alcoholic spirits, including of a liqueur known as Root. Grasse also owns shares in the Narrgansett Brewing Company of Rhode Island.
Something I Ate feat. Sam Kim of Skimkim Foods and Kat Popiel of On Plate, Still Hungry
Something I Ate celebrates what we as humans derive from food: pleasure, sustenance, energy. To that point, artists reflect on a week of eating in the medium of their choice — paint, photography, poetry, etc. The artists each describe a defining meal, ingredient, or moment from their week, at which point Sam Kim of SkimKim Foods presents seasonal interpretations, including a pairing of Kanon Vodka & Root Liquor cocktails. Additionally (and excitingly), the mad demons of London food science, Bompas and Parr, are creating a site-specific installation.”
