What do vegans, musical notes and sushi have in common? They all travel around the world! This week, the Central Texas Food & Sustainability events invite us to take a trip around with world with a documentary on the production of Sushi, out to the local vineyard, or just relax and listen to the speed of sound with Austin’s Hartman Symphony. Be sure to pack up delicious homemade eats like Megan’s Homemade Bean Burger.
