A note about the Traveling Circus events from Leni of the Whiskey Bacon blog: "As part of our goal to change the way people eat and think about food locally, we organize at least 2 meet ups a month at delicious restaurants. It's a good time for anyone who likes food, to connect with other foodies, or just try something new (some of our regulars are fast foodies expanding their palate). Yes you have to pay for your dinner unfortunately, but we try to get the whole table in on any check in or Groupon deals - but we also bring the fun. Events are open to everyone and your human guests. We ask that guests RSVP on the Facebook page so we can warn the restaurant ahead of time. :) A few of the past events we've gotten around to blogging about are here so we do, actually blog about these events (Though as you can see, we're very behind :P)"
