Ever want to dress up and eat local at the same time?  You have an opportunity this week.  Our friends at the Green City Market Junior Board are holding their inaugural fundraiser this Sunday, October 30 at Carnivale, and it’s a costume party.  Be creative because best costume of the night will take home dinner for 2 to at GT Fish & Oyster.
