New York Chefs Against Fracking
Chefs don't usually get political, but fracking threatens their livelihood. Restaurants and tourism, a major part of the state's economy, depend on agriculture, clean air and clean water, all of which are threatened by fracking.
Chefs, restauranteurs and food-based business have teamed up to sponsor "A Taste of the Marcellus" at the Brooklyn Winery, 213 N 8th Street in Brooklyn, on July 26.
Promising delicious local food and drink and information about the risks fracking poses to food production in New York State, the event is a fundraiser for New Yorkers Against Fracking and Chefs for The Marcellus.
As a separate ticket, also a benefit, there's an Ommegang After-Party at Brooklyn Bowl, with live music and all the Ommegang beer you can drink.
Buy tickets to either event here.
