Drunk Education - There’s No Ethical Consumption Under Capitalism

We all know that there’s no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism, but what does that mean for the rest of our lives? This Drunk Ed show will ask questions like: What are the most cost-efficient crimes? How do you choose between all of your many garbage habits? And is it ethically acceptable for vegetarians to (literally) eat the rich? Talks by Kelli Korducki, John Leavitt (Mefi’s own The Whelk), Anna Merlan, and Eve Peyser. Tickets and information here!

New Salon NYC - Meeting #10

Please join us for drinks and conversation at the next Salon in Brooklyn, on October 27, 2016 at 7:30 PM. (Note new date) [more inside]

(a tribute to stalker cinema) is your last chance to catch erstwhile mefite hermitosis's lady-centric variety show, which grew out of a MeFi Project back in 2010 and has since welcomed guests such as Amy Sedaris, Nellie McKay, and Beth Grant.
