We’ve written about plenty of pop-ups, but how about a pop-up where the chefs come from halfway across the world to take part in a two day experience? Yup, that’s happening at Palmer’s Market in Darien! The dates are January 25 and January from 7:30-9:30 on both nights. For $80 you will get a complete four-course BYOB meal.
