#Sweet - by Gastronomista
This Friday, April 29th, we participated in the first of a series called SOMETHING I ATE, curated by Kat Popiel of On Plate, Still Hungry and Sam Kim of SkimKim Foods. The show was a creative venture pairing art with a specifically curated menu of food and drink.
The brief asked all of the artists to document what they ate for a week, and then make a piece to culminating their dietary choices. Nevermind what we ate that week, we wanted to create something edible, interactive, portable, and sweet. Handmade lollipops came immediately to mind as a small, easily shareable object, often a conversation starter, much like a tweet.
#Sweet - an installation by Gastronomista made with Root Liquor Lollipops. The Maple Root with Sea Salt was my favorite!

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.
