The Dock is a pub located less than a block from my house. They serve a host of menu items prepared from locally grown ingredients and dare customers to be locavores: one who eats food grown locally whenever possible. Tonight I ordered one of their feature "locavore" items: Buffalo Chicken Dip made from local, farm-fed chickens. Recently my partner and I decided to stop purchasing meat from large big box grocery stores and instead are visiting one of the local butchers when we need to stock up on meat. The meat is a more expensive, but it's also more ethical and that just sits better with us.
For more acts of kindness here's last year's E List: Random Acts of Kindness beginning with "E."
