Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied -- and sated for that matter.

Pie and Beer Pairing: Are we dreaming? Could it be true? Beer and pie, together at last? Indeed. Over at Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach savory pies will be paired with Firestone Ales this weekend. On the menu are onion and cheddar, roasted pork and tomatillo, vegan soyrizo, Jamaican beef, chicken and mushroom, smoked gouda mac and cheese treats form I Heart Pies, which will be paired with a variety of the Central Coast's craft brews. Sweet tooths needn't fret; there'll be some sweet offerings too, like chocolate bourbon pecan, pumpkin, and maple cream. For more info on the event, visit the I Heart Piessite.

Volcanic wine dinner at Sotto: Frank Cornelissen, the famed winemaker from the up-and coming Etna region of Sicily, takes natural wine to extremes, avoiding all possible interventions in the vineyard and in the winemaking process -- whether they be chemical, organic, or biodynamic. Instead he relies on the land, which just so happens to lie next to one of the world's remaining active volcanoes. Soils are ashen and temperatures are volatile, so as you can imagine, that results in some really interesting wine. He'll be making his only stop in the U.S. at Southern-Italian focussed restaurant Sotto with special guests Lou Amdurand Alice Feiring this Sunday, November 11 at 7:00pm. The dinner cooked by Steve Samson and Zach Pollack in their traditional Southern style, is priced at $139 per person, plus tax and gratuity.

Artists and Curators Cooking for a Cause: East of Borneo will be hosting a culinary event where artists, writers, and curators will step out of their comfort zone, presenting a gallery of edible work rather than the traditional mediums they craft with. The event, called "Eats of Borneo," will be hosted at the Blum and Poe Gallery on La Cienega from 6-11 p.m., and will raise money for the online magazine, which curates editorial content on contemporary art and its history considered from a Los Angeles perspective. Tickets are $35 presale, and can be purchased here.

And of course, don't forget the Vegan Chili Cook-off at Tony's Darts Away and the Wear Your Dinner dying event we talked about earlier this week.
