Weekend to-do: Pickles and Savor the Season


Pickle me this...
On Saturday, Sept. 20 from 1-4 p.m. Machine Project hosts a pickle-making event in Echo Park, hosted by Erik Knutzen and Kelly Coyne from homegrownevolution.com and Mark Frauenfelder from dinosaursandrobots.com (and BoingBoing!). Bring jars and fruits or vegetables to pickle, as well as extra produce from your garden (does parsley count?)

A savory way to combat domestic violence
On Sunday, Savor the Season comes to the Vibiana Downtown for a benefit from 6-9 p.m. featuring some great L.A. tastes. Chef Andre Guerrero, left, of The Oinkster and Max is the honorary host chef, so between Andre and providers including Saltistry, Beverly Hills Caviar, The Edison, Tasca wine bar, Tanzore and more, there should be plenty of food and drink to sample.
Break the Cycle works to fight domestic and dating violence among youth.

Machine Project does lots of fun things like this (as well as serious stuff too). I think it was last year that they did a "deep fry" event where you could bring anything and deep fry it.

I am so happy to get some hero gold and the hero online gold is given by my close friend who tells me that the hero online money is the basis to enter into the game. Therefore, I should buy hero gold with the spare money and I gain some hero money from other players.
