When and Where: Tuesday in the Garden Patio at the Duquesne Club, Downtown.

What all the buzz was about: Hive325 is the first urban apiary Downtown. "We want to be a contemporary place. I've been a chef here for 22 years and wanted to do something new that we could share with the community," said executive chef Keith Coughenour. "I had a fear of bees but now that I have worked with them, I realize how gentle and important they are," said assistant pastry chef Sara Milarski. The decline of bees is of particular concern to Jeff Shaw, apiary director at Burgh Bees, a nonprofit in North Point Breeze. "One out of every three bites you take was pollinated by bees," he said. "Without bees, there are no humans. It's as simple as that."
