Plow To Plate Film Series: What’s For Dinner?
When: Tuesday September 10, 7pm
Where: Park Slope Food Coop, 782 Union Street
What: What’s For Dinner? follows the rapid rise of animal product consumption in China, where consumption of pork—the country’s most popular meat—has doubled over the past ten years. Since China recently opened its doors to foreign agribusiness, both Western and home-grown fast food chains are now commonplace in urban areas, and contribute to a $28 billion-a-year business in the country. The film sheds new light on the climate, public health, workers’ rights, and ethical concerns. Refreshments will be served.
How much: Free!
Live: The Both (Aimee Mann & Ted Leo)
When: Wednesday September 11, 9pm (8:00 doors)
Where: The Bell House, 149 7th Street
What: In the best thing to come out of a Twitter-based joke, Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have joined forces as The Both (alternately called #BOTH) and are touring their LP, which is inspired by “folksy but edgy rock melodicism” and “spooky, soulful atmosphere.” They bring their superduo to Brooklyn this week.
How much: $25, tickets available here.
