The folks from Slow Food St. Louis must be keenly aware of this sobering fact, as they dedicate their time to celebrating and preserving the finer vittles, the handcrafted beers, regional cuisine, true artisan foodstuffs. Join in the movement when the group holds its Art of Food fundraiser at Soulard’s Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th Street).

Tickets are $20 in advance and $30 at the door (prices include one drink). Get the goods at
