No one was sure what to expect from Huss Future Fest 2018 in the week leading up to the event. A couple of our favorite partners had to cancel and the chance of rain was up to 100%. As we scrambled to implement a rain backup plan, we wondered: will anyone show up? And wow,…

Future Fest 2018: Food!

Why you should come to Future Festival: GOOD FOOD!

Ripe tomatoes, soft to the touch, in all colors of the rainbow… Dark, waxy leaves of kale and collards… Potatoes still redolent of their underground palaces, the damp earth we dug them out of dried now to fine dust… Sweet, snappy carrots and darkly shining eggplant… Piles and piles and piles of green beans and…
