What’s the best way to spend a hot Monday night? Probably not in the confines of a Community Board meeting, yet that’s where I’ll be this evening, running my mouth off about why the city should step in and save the Essex Street Market.
Thanks to all of you who showed up to last month’s meeting! They’re a bit long, I know, but it makes a HUGE difference. If you’re free this evening, and want to testify as to why you want to save the Essex Street Market, come on down and give your two cents. You can help us save this historic LES institution! To testify, just show up 10 minutes before the meeting begins to register your name.
Community Board 3 Meeting
Monday, June 27th at 6:30 pm
University Settlement, Speyer Hall
184 Eldridge Street (between Rivington and Delancey)
Stay tuned next week for details about the meeting. I will do my best to keep everyone up to date on the issue!
Also, if you haven’t signed the petition to save Essex Market, you can still do so by logging on to savetheessexstreetmarket.org The goal of 2,000 signatures was reached! Thank you! But we still need as many signatures as we can get. Please forward this to your friends and get them on board!
Cheese on the Radio! Tune in tonight from 4:30 to 5:00 on the Heritage Radio Network, or download the show as a podcast.
Tonight on Cutting the Curd, we’ll be chatting about Cheese and Media. Be sure to listen in and learn about how cheese is infiltrating the myriad of media out there in the world. Our first guest is Christine Hyatt of Cheese Chick TV, a unique site full of hand-crafted video pieces sharing the stories of the people ‘behind the rind’ as it were. Later in the show we’ll be talking with Will Fertman of Culture Magazine. How does a print magazine all about cheese survive in this day and age?! Listen in and find out!
