Description

PLEASE NOTE: ATTENDANCE LIMITED TO FIRST 35 PEOPLE WHO SECURE A TICKET HERE. YOU'RE WELCOME TO GIFT OR TRANSFER YOUR SPOT TO A FRIEND IF YOUR PLANS CHANGE. JUST LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE.

Join us for our 101st dinner on October 6th at our friend Jean's artist collective called The Growlery.

Expect cocktails at 6:00 and our speaker around 6:45 with a family style feast introduced around 7:00, prepared by our professional chef. Wines will be thoughtfully paired with the menu.

ATTIRE: Attire is relaxed and informal.

About GOOD PEOPLE: Most of the enjoyment we gain from an experience has more to do with who we're with than what we're doing. Good People is about inspiration, community and friendships. Who are good people? They’re our best selves, when we rise above tribalism and explore big ideas.

OUR SPEAKER:
Our friend Ken Fisher is on a journey to create positive social transformation and is passionate about finding answers to some of society's most pressing challenges.

Ken is currently in production on Be As You Are, a feature documentary about Universal Basic Income. The film explores economic security, social reconstruction, poverty alleviation, the new American Dream and automation in an effort to reimagine our broken and failing social fabric.

Over the past five years Ken has worked closely on stories and solutions to homelessness here in SF. As an Emmy nominated film director and founder of Truth Be Told, he focuses on producing and directing social justice documentaries. Two days ago Ken returned from a three week documentary shoot in Dauphin, Manitoba where he was filmming a story about Canada's UBI pilot called Mincome.

This evening we'll discuss a variety of issues ranging from homelessness, to aligning our jobs with our passions, to the impact of past and present Basic Income pilot projects.

THE CHEF: Our friend and chef Moe Inani has worked in some of the west coast's most celebrated restaurants, including Saison, Nobu and Morimoto. He draws inspiration from a variety of sources, including traditional Arabic menus and all the subtle offerings of Japanese cuisine.

THE MENU:

To Start:
- Flat flakey bread with feta heirloom tomato salad, jalapeño, radish, cucumber, olive oil

Mains:
- eggplant, tahini parsley sauce, pita crackers, harissa crispy potatos, finished with mint and olive oil.

- whole lamb, saffron rice, fried onions, with cucumber yogurt salad and middle eastern salsa.

To Finish:
- coconut pudding with kaffir lime syrup, cardamom banana cream pistachios, almonds, blue berries, coconut tamari caramel.

If you're vegetarian or have other dietary needs or restrictions, please contact Raman at least 72 hours in advance.

Drinks at 6:00, dinner at 7:00. Though a cocktail and some wine will be provided, guests are welcome to bring a bottle of wine to share. Menu update coming soon to help you choose your bottles. We always make sure vegetarian friends will have plenty to eat. Please contact Raman if you have any other dietary restrictions.
