We love Argus Farm Stop and are so excited they'll be joining us for this feast. Though we're lucky to be positioned right next to the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market, when our farmers miss the market, the weather is not great or it's Tuesday (and there's no market!), we can count on Argus to bridge the gap and open up access to even more local produce and goods.

On DRINK: Jimmy McDaniel of M4-CIC + Josh Bertolet, Local Beer Representative for Mikkeller Brewing!
M4-CIC is a family owned specialty beer distributor located in Ann Arbor. The ability to have personal relationships with our vendors is incredibly important to us - and not just when it comes to food! Jimmy and the M4 family ensure that we're able to connect faces to the breweries we put on our menu by introducing us to enthusiastic representatives like Josh.
