    Eats and Treats for a Good Cause
    Lucky Dog Farm
    Organic vegetables from the endangered Lucky Dog Farm at a local greenmarket.

    Lucky Dog, a farm in the Catskills, is a beautiful place with hard-working people who perform a very important service for very, very little profit: Growing delicious organic vegetables and getting them to your table without draining your wallet.

    And Applewood is a wonderful restaurant in Park Slope run by passionate food-lovers where seasonal, farm-fresh cooking rules the roost - and where Lucky Dog's produce shows up on the menu often.

    So it only made sense that when the people at Lucky Dog found out they'd have to buy some of the land they've been renting or risk losing it entirely - and that this would require scraping together about $30,000 -- Applewood stepped in to throw a fundraiser/cocktail party/silent auction for the farm. The paltry $20 ticket covers admission and delicious hors d'oeuvres (this is Applewood after all), and the chance to bid on some wonderful items donated for auction, from getaways to one-of-a-kind collector's items. (Details to come.) And if the recession hasn't hovered all your cash and you'd like to donate some to the cause, Applewood will pony up a $100 restaurant gift certificate for every $1000 the farm receives in donations.

    Did we mention the cozy room has a fireplace?
