Dinner with Friends
A design-focused, quarterly lifestyle magazine celebrating California's Central Valley, one dinner party at a time.




It's Wednesday. Which means we've made it halfway through the week. But for us, today also marks one month until our next dinner party! We're currently operating on a mix of excitement, frenzy and coffee. There is still much to be done, but if can put all the pieces together, this is going to be a great gathering. 

In the meantime, we've got a new summer series debuting soon. As in, a couple of days! Remember last summer's "Drinks w/ Friends"? Well, it's like that, but for farmers markets. Naturally, we're calling it "Farmers Markets w/ Friends." Holly Clinard, who wrote the feature on our first dinner party last fall, is hitting markets around the Central Valley -- we had to twist her arm -- and giving you the lowdown on what you can expect to find at each one. As with our drink reviews, each farmers market piece will be accompanied by awesome local artwork. For this series, we've asked Elowyn Dickerson to whip up some of her signature charts featuring highlights from Holly's write-ups. We are so excited to share the first one with you. And you can expect one new review a month throughout the summer!

OK, back to work. But before we go, here's one more thing to look forward to. Fresno State corn! We hear it'll be ready at the end of the month.
