Homegrown Foodie

As someone who regularly steals restaurant menus, takes pictures of bathroom interiors and stares longingly at signage, this event sounds perfect. And I know I'm not alone in my admiration of food and restaurant design. The packaging, the art and the details complete our food experiences, don't you think? For those of you who look beyond the plate when dining, check out AIGA KC's Homegrown Food event. They've got a fantastic line-up of speakers, too.
