Trappist Bug Fest tomorrow (Sat 4/18)

bouncepass | Apr 17, 201509:28 AM    

Tomorrow The Trappist and Trappist Provisions are having a sour beer fest, a.k.a. "Bug Fest". The list is quite impressive. But the below second announcement caught my eye ("we" refers specifically to The Trappist in this case):

Special Culinary Announcement

We’ll be offering a very special Bug Fest snack this Saturday: Bugs. Yes, actual bugs. “Gusanos” and “Chapulines”, aka meal worms and grasshoppers were a staple of Pre-Hispanic Mexican cuisine. Our talented friend and next-door neighbor Gloria Dominguez of Tamarindo is presenting this exquisite snack in the form of tacos - a specialty of the Oaxaca region of Mexico. Come on down and crunch on some bugs!!
