WHAT: The Runcible Spoon Summer Swimsuit Issue Launch Party
WHEN: Tuesday, May 15, 2012
WHERE: Blind Dog Cafe, 944 Florida Avenue NW, Washington DC, 20001
Washington D.C. – The District’s very own, tiny, little food zine, The Runcible Spoon, is releasing its summer issue — The Swimsuit Edition — on Tuesday, May 15, featuring those lusciously gratuitous food options and down-home, sticks-to-your-ribs recipes that are guaranteed to make that winter weight permanent and get us beach-ready in no time.
The zine — now on its eighth issue — includes a story on the art of frying avocados fromNPR producer, Bill Chappell; a photo essay on vintage kitchenware by the Washington Post’s AJ Chavar; and a recipe for lard pie by DC-based, Tarts by Tarts’ Emily Hilliard.
“Who doesn’t want a thick slice of buttery pie and a milk-based cocktail when it’s 90 degrees and humid out?” said Malaka Gharib, Editor of the Runcible Spoon. “Spoon’s Swimsuit Edition is meant to promote that sense of careless summer fun we look forward to all year.”
To launch the new issue, the Runcible Spoon is holding a casual fete at The Blind Dog Café on Tuesday, May 15, where foodies and friends will have a chance to browse the new zine, mingle with contributors and show off their bubble gum skills in a bubble blowing contest. Light refreshments and drinks will be served.
