Join me for a four week mocktail class in #LosAngeles!
To register for the class, please fill out this quick form: http://goo.gl/forms/3yBIURGpD0

We're bringing Jews and Muslims together to socialize over a drink. We teach simple and effective techniques used to craft delicious non-alcoholic beverages. We do this together, creating unique experiences that spark friendships and conversation.
Our fresh ingredients, bar tools, and mocktails are our #72virgins.

Here's a lovely quote from +Aziza Hasan about the power of this project:
"For too long, '72 virgins' has been a phrase that has yielded a lot of power. Take a chance in reclaiming that power by unpacking stereotypes & learning different techniques on how to make mocktail drinks that we can all enjoy."

This workshop and project is partially funded with a Microgrant from +NewGround: A Muslim Jewish Partnership for Change. Special thanks to Zan Romanoff and +Ayana Morse from our host, SIJCC, for graciously discounting our rental fee. And big ups to +Saba Mirza, my Supervising Producer and #foodie  friend.

Links to all of our social profiles are at our website, http://72bebidas.com

Did you know recording artists and session singers are not paid anything when their performance is played on AM/FM radio? Our effort to fix this long-running inequity with our recording artist members is gaining momentum. It is long past due for recording artists to gain a performance right (royalty) for their music when it is played on AM/FM radio. However, radio broadcasters are fighting this effort with a deceptively named resolution called the Local Radio Freedom Act (LRFA). The LRFA directly opposes our efforts and those of our allies, including the American Federation of Musicians, the AFL-CIO and the musicFIRST Coalition. Even the U.S. Copyright Office is on our side.
 
The Copyright Office just issued a report strongly recommending reforms to the laws affecting music licensing, including creating a performance right for recording artists in radio. The office said music creators deserve an AM/FM performance right and that radio broadcasters’ arguments against it “ring hollow.”
 
The radio broadcasters LRFA resolution calls a performance right a “tax.” But in reality, no money goes to the government. It is not a tax at all, it is payment to artists for their work.
 
AM/FM radio pays nothing to performers when their songs are played, unlike satellite radio and Internet radio. That’s unfair to performers and it creates an uneven playing field between radio competitors.
 
Let your members of Congress know you support fair pay for performers and oppose big radio’s LRFA bill. Click on the link below, enter your zip code and tell your congressional representative to say NO to LRFA.
 
Take Action Now! Tell your Representative to value the work of SAG-AFTRA recording artists across the country.
 
Share on social media and encourage your friends and followers to #valuemusic.
 
In unity,
 
SAG-AFTRA
 
SAG-AFTRA is a union that has among its members a diverse group of performers, broadcasters and newscasters. Opposition of this bill should not be interpreted as a personal statement of opinion by or of any specific member of the union.

From Robert Hurwitt's +SFGate review
It's a tale mostly told in a prolonged flashback by Polaroid Phillie, a fetchingly eccentric street photographer - locals make excuses for her LSD-addled brain - still peddling her "antique" photo services to couples at Village hangouts. She particularly likes the "gay ladies" clubs and has fond memories of "the little butches," wondering, "Where did they get those little suits?"
