On Tuesday, August 5th WORD bookstore is hosting the launch of Jesus Lizard front man David Yow’s new book, Copycat: And a Litter of Other Cats. David Yow’s cat portraits, captured here for the first time in book form, are bold, striking, hilarious, and beautiful. Each portrait is based around a pun, but they capture so much more than wordplay. All cat lovers will find something to relish in this gorgeous coffee-table book, which is the perfect gift for cat enthusiasts, animal lovers, and anyone with a playful sense of humor. Said one member of the Brooklyn Brewery Marketing Unit, “This looks like the best event ever.” We’ll see you there.
Farmigo strives to transform the way we think about food, technology, and community – which is exactly what they aim to do with their monthly FoodHacker series. The theme of the August talk is “In the Weeds”, and will feature four, local entrepreneurs, as they share their stories and experiences about working in the food world. The question of the night for our speakers* – What have you learned about nurturing a business from nothing into something, as an entrepreneur working in New York City? Space is limited, so RSVP here!
