I’m Addicted to Hope (And Wine)
If your last two years have been anything like mine, your emotions today are probably a mix of unbelievable excitement, paired with a gaping hole full of questions like, what am I gonna do now with all that time I spent watching CNN, and, where am I gonna donate all my money now that David Plouffe doesn’t email me five times a day?
Never fear, ES is always on the lookout for opportunities to fill your bellies, fill your schedules, and empty your wallets. So here’s one great foodie/feel good event ya’ll can check out next week.
Advocacy Lab is an awesome nonprofit that works with New York City high school students to empower them to become advocates for human rights. If you are against things like child soldiers, malaria, and torture, and pro- things such as education and freedom, you will probably be down with AdLab.
Next Wednesday, November 12, Advocacy Lab is holding a wine tasting/fundraiser at Moore Brothers Wine Company, a really awesome Manhattan wine shop with tons of organic (and reasonably priced) selections. You should really check out Moore Bros. sometime even if you can’t make the event – and you can donate to AdLab online here.
Full disclosure – my girlfriend helped start this nonprofit. And yes, gansie, I made her write up a recipe in exchange for pimping her event, so hold your breath for an awesome baking post.
