This coming week, in events that get to your heart through your stomach.
Saturday, June 30
If there's one thing we've learned in this lifetime of happening on local food events, it's never pass up food from a firehouse. Take, for instance, the terrific grilled chicken dinner capped with homemade pie and an Elvis impersonator we once happened upon in the godforsaken middle of nowhere, Indiana. So its firehouse location makes the Argyle Fish Fry a must for a weekend excursion. Argyle-Adams Firehouse, 101 N. Broad St., Argyle, 4-9 p.m. Call 608-543-3113 for more info.
