Brace Yourself for Spargelfest

The Black Forest Inn, starting May 22, will serve fresh, local asparagus (“spargel,” auf Deutsch), using traditional German and not-so-traditional recipes. Some highlights: savory cheesecake featuring asparagus, asparagus soup, deep-fried asparagus, rolled asparagus in crepes, and an asparagus-infused vodka drink, known as the Spargeltini. And on May 29, the restaurant is having a special benefit for Harvest for the Hungry.
