Chef Jim Drohman feels so strongly about the labeling of genetically modified foods, he’s going to feed you snacks at his lovely Cafe Presse while you get educated about it. “Yes on 522 will certainly be outspent by Big Ag, so all we have is organizing,” he says. Come learn what the hell GMOs are, what foods they’re in, why labeling them is important, and what you can do to help. Come! (And call 709-7674 to RSVP so he knows how many to expect.) $5.22 suggested donation.
The Stranger’s reviews of Cafe Nordo’s experimental dinner-theater-that-isn't-dinner-theater have been mixed. Thadius Van Landingham III thought the dishes uneven and the ambitions unmet in the company’s first show; Bethany Jean Clement found one of last year’s shows long but fairly rewarding, while Paul Constant delighted in the full-body pleasure of another. This spring, a modern spaghetti western. Will it be good, bad, and/or ugly—who can say? $130-$160 for season's membership, $600 for Chef's Table.
