And I'm Back

Snakepit
Hi friends of the interwebs! I thought that when I returned from my Mexican adventure, the emails would be few, the events would be scattered, I could read the awesome books I've picked up on Mexican culture, but I was wrong. There are so many things going on and most of them cheap or even free! Let's start with next week's Meatball Takedown. Matt Timms and 30 meatball makers are taking over The Bell House Sunday afternoon. Tickets are currently sold out, but you know, check Craigslist for people reselling.


There also another event that I'm excited about and it's free! American Meat is a documentary looking at the differences between the industrial and the sustainable American meat production systems. My interest is currently piqued due to the different types of farms I visited in Mexico, including a commercial pig farm that uses its waste for electricity. I have not yet had a chance to catch any of its screenings since it came out in late 2011, but there's one coming up March 26. I know, that's why far off, but not really! The location will be somewhere on the NYU campus, I'm assuming where is dependent on how many folks RSVP. If you want to join, RSVP here.

Or if you're concerned about "what is organic?" you should check out In Organic We Trust. There isn't any scheduled screening in New York, but it is available on-demand today via a bunch of websites.
