As some of you know, I am giving away a Let There Be Bite cotton tote  packed with award-winning products to one lucky winner who submits a $5 meal recipe by September 25th. Click here for details.  But if you happen to be in San Diego on September 17th, don’t miss two fun events being held in celebration of Slow Food USA’s national challenge (as well as a chance to win a second LTBB goodie bag!).
9AM – 1:30 PM
Amici Park, Little Italy, San Diego
Slow Food Urban San Diego  is hosting a potluck in the park. Bring your $5 meal to enjoy with friends, or just stop by on your way to the farmer’s market  nearby. Click here for more details. 
NOON – 4PM
Sea Rocket Bistro, North Park, San Diego – ENTER TO WIN GOODIE BAG ($50+ VALUE)
If cooking isn’t your thing but you want to support the cause, come for lunch at Sea Rocket Bistro  and enter to win a LTBB goodie bag. Chef Chad White and co-owner Dennis Stein made this awesome video about creating a $5 stew, which they’ll be serving that day. (If you haven’t yet tried Sea Rocket Bistro, now’s the time — truly creative and delicious food.) See you there!
