Last night, The Oxford and Raleigh City Farm teamed up for a special meal. The Farm to Table fundraiser dinner featured five unique and delicious dishes, all including produce from Raleigh's own urban farm.

In case you missed our special "tweet seat" commentary, we compiled a tweet log to document the night.
