I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
San Francisco supervisors vs. sugary drinks
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has approved three measures to deal with sugary drinks:
1. Put warning labels on all print and billboard ads for sodas and sugary drinks sold in the city (those with more than 25 calories per 12 ounces).
2. Ban soda ads on city property
3. Prohibit the use of city funds for the purchase of soda or sugary beverages
Will the mayor sign the measure?
Will the city’s famous freeway sign look like this?
