Going Green in the Ghetto (in Mar Vista)

If you’re a fan of The Liquid Muse “Sustainable Sips” organic cocktails, you may enjoy a foodie-meets-greenie ‘underground dining’ experience, on Wednesday, Nov. 14.

Ghetto Gourmet will show "Who Killed the Electric Car?" a documentary about electric cars, hybrids, hydrogen and the future of transportation during a locally-sourced organic meal prepared by San Francisco-based Chef Cynthia Washburn. The film’s director, Chris Paine, will also be on hand for live commentary.

The event will take place in an eco-friendly Red Barn Prefab Home designed by Andrew Ariza, and Kris Moller, Founder and CEO of ConservFuel in Brentwood (apparently, the first station in Los Angeles and second in California - to offer E85 ethanol) will also be on hand.

You can read about the Gourmet Ghetto dinner I attended in Koreatown. Since then, GG’s prices have gone up to $65 per person – and don’t include booze or chairs (so peruse The Liquid Muse for BYOB ideas and bring cushions to sit upon). An evening in the “Ghetto” feeds both mind and body. And, by the sounds of it, this one will also feed your eco-conscience!

Hungry yet? Reserve here.
