Remember An Evening of Agtivism? The hordes of people, delicious foods, nourishing talks and eye-melting movie?
Ready for more?

Lucky for you, the train is coming back to Big Bear Cafe. On January 1st, we'll be putting on 'An Evening of Carnivory' to discuss and consider our relationship to the animals we eat.

It will start out with a screening of OAT, introduced by me, and as Ebineezer is introduced, our guests will be seated at a large family-style table and be served the apertif to their four-course dinner prepared by BBChef Clementina Russo.

Discussion, pork consumption and wine imbibement will be strongly encouraged throughout the evening.

There will be limited space, so please contact bigbearcafe.events@gmail.com immediately to reserve a place for yourself, your friends, lovers, grandmothers and favourite farmers.

See you there.
