Appetite for Jackson is happening Saturday, 1/28/2012, 2:00 pm – 9:00 pm at the new Art Garden at the Mississippi Museum of Art. The event will feature great food from local restaurants and live bands. All proceeds benefit the Craig Noone Miracle League (Craig was the recently deceased co-owner of Parlor Market). If that’s not enough to get you to attend, eatjackson.org says Andrew Zimmern of Bizarre Foods fame will be there as well sometime between 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm, and according to visitmississippi.org he’ll be there with his TV crew for his new show Appetite for Life.
Admission is free. Just pay $5 per plate for food from any of the participating restaurants if you so choose. Otherwise just enjoy the event. If you need parking “there will be free parking at City Center across from Thalia Mara Hall on Pascagoula Street during the event” per Appetite for Jackson’s Facebook wall. Also according to posts on their wall this will be a family friendly event, which means you might see us there. Look for the Asian guy with the big camera (as if that’s not stereotypical enough) with wife and 2 kids in tow.
