Tom Spicer, an agricultural force in this area for over 30 years, lost his funky garden and shop on Fitzhugh last December. He found a home in a space next to Garden Café where he’ll be plowing the field and hosting his informal, yet educational Thursday-night dinners for March.
This morning he sends the dates and menus written in Spice-ish. Dinners are $75pp plus 15% gratuity. 5310 Junius Heights. 214-887-8330. BYOB.
