Last night was our first ever music & food pairing event Soundbites at the Iron Horse. It was so much and a big success. Thanks to everyone involved to make this event possible.   Below is all the dishes and the pairings from the last night. We also embeded the Soundbites mixtape so you can listen to the songs via 8Tracks.  You can also download the 8Tracks iPhone or Android phone apps for free and listen to the mixtape on the go.
