1. Farm to table, schmarm to table.  How about filthy street to table? A Brooklyn artist (naturally) hosted a dinner centered entirely on rats. Yes, rats. Laura Ginn's $100 a head meal at Allegra LaViola Gallery featured "rat and pork paté and braised and grilled rodent carcass prepared by chef Yuri Hart."

Glad we missed the invite for this one. [via Eater]
