While I'm in Austin covering the Blogher Food '13 event, you folks back home in the South Bay can check out these events. On Friday and Saturday, Rubio's is giving away a free tote bag as part of their commitment to keep the oceans clean. Rubio’s partnered with the San Diego community to pick up more than 350 pounds of trash from local-area beaches. This bag giveaway is part of their effort to continue that committment.
You know those commercials with plastic soda can rings trapping fish and cigarette butts floating their way to the ocean? Well...like it or not, trash does find it's way to our oceans. And a reusable grocery bag helps keep more plastic bags from ending up in our oceans.
San Jose and Sunnyvale have already banned plastic bags at grocery stores, if anything, you should stop by Rubio's to get yourself another shopping bag. It's useful!

The Fresh Market also just opened in Palo Alto. I missed the Grand opening today but promotions and cooking demos will go on all weekend so feel free to stop by.
The Fresh Market, Inc. (NASDAQ: TFM) was founded with one simple goal in mind: to bring friends, family and neighbors high-quality products in a warm and friendly, old-world European atmosphere with superior customer service.
WHO: With a focus on freshness and quality perishables, The Fresh Market is a true neighborhood market that has built its reputation as an extraordinary food destination store. With the opening of the Palo Alto store, the specialty grocer now operates 132 stores in the Southeast, Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and West Coast, with plans for continued expansion across the country.
Chef demonstrations and sampling will continue through Saturday.
I hope you take a chance to check out these cool events happening in the Bay Area this weekend. Also check out my Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, or the twitter hashtag #BlogherFood for live updates of this exciting weekend.Tweets by @SanJoseFoodBlog
