Taste of the Marcellus - A Fundraiser to Fight Fracking in New York State
Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM (EDT)
A Benefit for Chefs for the Marcellus and New Yorkers Against Fracking
TASTE OF THE MARCELLUS
The land, air and water of upstate New York's 28-county Marcellus region are threatened by the prospect of hydrofracturing ("fracking") -- a dangerous and dirty method of extracting natural gas from shale. With a passion for local food production and water quality, we're working to ban fracking in New York State.
Please join a group of the city's leading chefs in delicious defiance and savor the food, beer, wines and spirits from this beautiful, bountiful region.
