“Dinner and Bikes,” a road show of vegan food and bicycle inspiration, comes to Watkins College of Art, Design & Film on Sunday, April 29, from 7 to 9 p.m. Presented by the Watkins Library, the free event offers a buffet and media presentation by Joshua Ploeg, Elly Blue and Joe Biel, currently on a Dinner and Bikes tour of the southeastern United States.
Ploeg is a Los-Angeles-based personal chef, author of five vegan cookbooks, and publisher of the controversial raw food zine, So Raw It’s Downright Filthy. Portland, Oregon-based Blue is an author and blogger who writes about bicycle transportation and grassroots culture, and is the co-founder of PDX by Bike, a business that helps people find their way around Portland by bicycle. Biel, also from Portland, publishes nonfiction books, zines and movies through Microcosm Publishing and Cantankerous Titles, and recently produced “Cycling Shorts,” a collection of short movies about bicycle culture.
The April 29 tour stop at Watkins features an extensive vegan buffet with food preparation tips, videos from “Cycling Shorts,” a slideshow about activism and the economy, discussion of local issues, and a traveling bookstore.
There is no charge for the meal or the presentation, but reservations are strongly recommended. Contact the Watkins Library at (615) 277-7440 or firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations and information.
Dinner & Bikes (www.DinnerandBikes.com) is sponsored in part by the Turnip Truck and presented in association with the library's second annual Handmade & Bound Nashville book arts festival (handmadeboundnashville.com), set for October 5-6 at Watkins.
