How to Eat and Drink Your Way Through the Winter Solstice

Yes it’s especially cold and dark today, but there’s plenty of fun to be had at these three local events.


Today marks the Winter Solstice, the first official day of winter. (It’s also the day with the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year.) You may feel like crawling under your covers and hiding until spring, but believe it or not, today is worthy of celebration. Don’t believe me? Check out one—or all three—of these fun and flavorful happenings today.
