Wake Up Call

Post St. Patty's Hangover Helper, Fountain Hills Arts Festival and Barista Jam 2010 in Today's Eater's Digest.

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

Tomorrow through Sunday, celebrate the glorious spring weather with the Fountain Hills Fine Art and Wine Affaire. Artists will be on hand to present their work. No Degas in the crowd? (Admittedly, art fairs can often be painful, from an aesthetic perspective.) Blur the lines with a wine tasting. Admission is $3 for the art festival and an extra $10 for the wine tasting, which includes a wine glass. Visit the Thunder Bird Artists website for more details.

Those of us addicted to the sweet nectar that is coffee can show regional support for one of our favorite dealers, Cartel, today. A Barista Jam will be held at 6 p.m. at the downtown location to help raise funds to send three of their own to the U.S. Barista Competition. Latte Art throwdown and a DJ should make for a fun night!

Chances are you have a wicked hangover this morning, and you are thinking to yourself that all those shots of whiskey maybe weren't exactly the best idea. Sorry friend, what's done is done. While there is no "cure" for a hangover there are some things you can do to make the day a bit more tolerable. Check out soyouwanna.com for a great hangover helper recipe.
