CELEBRATING BRONX HUSTLE

IT’S THE BRONX, a celebration of Bronx hustle is a festival, designed by ROUND SEVEN to proudly showcase the talent and innovative spirit that embodies our borough by way of music, art, media, and food. The preview event to the festival takes place on January 26th at The Bronx Brewery.

The first ever 3-day IT’S THE BRONX festival will be held as planned at the Union Crossing building on March 2019.

Following the success of the 2018 season of the Bronx Night Market with 12K+ in attendance each event, we’ve put together a unique group of Bronx minds to create an event that focuses on entrepreneurship, excellence, and get s#it done characteristics. This time focusing more on music, art, and food. Our end goal is to build a new tradition in the form of an annual series of events that gives shine to local talent, philanthropists, and the economically growing community.

RBG: Special Screening Reception and Panel Discussion @ Center for Jewish History 15 West 16th Street New York, NY 10011 United States
Mar 25 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
RBG: Special Screening Reception and Panel Discussion @ Center for Jewish History 15 West 16th Street New York, NY 10011 United States | | |

At the age of 85, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has developed a lengthy legal legacy while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. But the unique personal journey of her rise to the nation’s highest court has been largely unknown, even to some of her biggest fans – until now. RBG explores Ginsburg’s life and career. The film captures Ginsburg’s determination as she goes from being a brilliant legal scholar shunned by law firms because of her gender to a masterful appellate litigator who advanced women’s rights by arguing and winning several key cases before the nine men on the Supreme Court in the 1970s, and then finally to her role as a member of the Court.

Join MALA and the Center for Jewish History for a special screening and panel discussion of this critically acclaimed award-winning documentary. We will be joined by two of RBG’s filmmakers, Associate Producer Nadine Natour and Director/Producer Julie Cohen for an in depth conversation on their journeys in chronicling the life and career of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

About the Speakers:

Julie Cohen has directed and produced nine feature documentaries, including RBG (Magnolia, Participant, CNN Films), The Sturgeon Queens (7th Art Releasing/PBS); and American Veteran (Freestyle). She has won a duPont Columbia Award, two Gracie Awards, three New York Emmy Awards and the 2017 Panavision Showcase Award for best New York filmmaker. Before she started making documentaries, Julie was a staff producer for Dateline NBC and the creator and producer of Supreme Court Watch on Court TV. She holds a B.A. from Colgate and masters’ degrees from Columbia Journalism School and Yale Law School.

The associate producer of RBG, Nadine Natour has shot, field produced, and edited a feature-length doc, American Veteran (Freestyle Releasing; Winner of the G.I. Film Festival Founders Award and the Panavision Showcase Award), and co-edited The Sturgeon Queens (PBS: 2015 Berlinale Official Selection). She is a 2009 graduate of the University of Virginia and a 2012 graduate of the Columbia Journalism School and a 2012 – 2013 News Associate at NBC.

Paul M. Barrett (program moderator) joined the NYU Center for Business and Human Rights as deputy director in September 2017 after spending more than three decades as a journalist and author focusing on the intersection of business, law, and society. Most recently, Paul worked for 12 years for Bloomberg Businessweek magazine, and from 1986 to 2005, he wrote for The Wall Street Journal, serving as the newspaper’s Supreme Court correspondent and later as the page one special projects editor. He is the author of four critically acclaimed nonfiction books, the most recent of which are GLOCK: The Rise of America’s Gun (2012), a New York Times Bestseller, and Law of the Jungle: The $19 Billion Legal Battle Over Oil in the Rain Forest and the Lawyer Who’d Stop at Nothing to Win (2014). Both of those books have been optioned for Hollywood movies. An adjunct professor at New York University School of Law since 2008, Paul is married to RBG director Julie Cohen.

Trade & Media Seminar Options
For our Trade & Media guests, we have added two (2) educational seminars. Space is limited to 40 participants for each session.

The Past, Present and Future of New York’s Hybrid Grapes
1:00 PM to 2:00 PM – Moderated by Pascaline Lepeltier, MS and Mike Colizzi, Viticulturist, Cornell
New York state boasts well over a century of fine wine production. But what exactly were the grapes that went into the wines that made their way to 19th century Europe to claim medals? And what about the subsequent phases of wine-grape exploration that followed in the university? In this seminar, we’ll explore the history of hybrid grape wine production that began with our native labrusca grapes then transitioned to the cold-hardy crosses that take history in France as well as our own universities, such as Cornell. Join sommelier Pascaline Lepeltier, MS, and viticulturist Mike Colizzi of the Cornell Agriculture Experiment Station in Geneva, who, along with six of our state’s winemakers, will moderate this seminar with an approach that addresses the past, present, and future of these grapes so important to northeastern North American wine culture.

Featured Wines:

Thirsty Owl Wine Company, 2017 Traminette, Finger Lakes (Shawn Kime)
Keuka Lake Vineyards, 2017 “Turkey Run” Vignoles, Finger Lakes (Staci Nugent)
Anthony Road Wine Company, 2016 Dry Vignoles, Finger Lakes (Peter Becraft)
Damiani Wine Cellars, NV Marechal Foch “Vino Rosso,” Finger Lakes (Phill Arras)
Benmarl, 2015 Bacco Noir, Hudson River Valley (Matthew Spaccarelli)

Simply Red: Exploring the Variety of Red Vinifera Grapes from Across New York
3:00 PM to 4:00 PM – Moderated by Erin Scala, Sommalier and Mike Colizzi, Viticulturist, Cornell University
From the east end of Long Island, all the way to the northwest corner of the Niagara Escarpment, our state produces a diversity of red wines almost too vast to believe. Join sommelier and journalist Erin Scala, as well as Cornell viticulturist and vineyard owner Mike Colizzi, for this deep dive into our state’s red vinifera grapes. This seminar will present a variety of red wines and their vignerons from the North Fork of Long Island, the Hudson Valley, the Finger Lakes, and the New York side of the Niagara Escarpment, of different structural textures, from rich blends with almost a decade of age to single variety bottlings of light, refreshing reds for the table or the bar.

Featured Wines:

Bedell Cellars, 2017 Malbec, North Fork (Rich Olsen-Harbich)
Macari, 2010 “Bergen Road,” North Fork (Joseph Macari)
Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery, 2016 Gamay Noir Reserve, Hudson River Valley (Brad Martz)

NIGHT OF SELF(LESS) CARE・Wed, March 27・7:30pm Doors・8:00pm Show
About this Event
While everyone understands the benefits of snail serums and a night spent at home with a bevy of CBD beverages, why not make your night of self care a bit more…selfless? Feminine hygiene products are a financial burden on all women, but it’s even worse for women in need. Their access to tampons and pads is non-existent and often overlooked. But we can help!

Night of Self(less) Care is a benefit comedy show raising money for Distributing Dignity, an organization that provides feminine hygiene products to women in shelters. Hosted by Alison Leiby and featuring stand up from:

Aparna Nancherla

Liza Treyger

Joyelle Nicole Johnson

Ilana Glazer

In addition to the show, there is an exciting raffle with some of the dopest prizes imaginable (last year had everything from fancy manicures to restaurant gift cards). And load up on feminine hygiene products, because every box tampons or pads you bring you get FREE RAFFLE TICKETS.

Unknowability: How Do We Know What Cannot Be Known? – 38th in the Social Re… @ The New School New York, NY 10011 United States
Apr 4 @ 3:00 pm – Apr 5 @ 3:30 pm
Unknowability: How Do We Know What Cannot Be Known? - 38th in the Social Re... @ The New School New York, NY 10011 United States | | |

The Center for Public Scholarship at The New School invites you to Unknowability: How Do We Know What Cannot Be Known?, the 38th Social Research Conference.

From the earliest moments of humanity’s search for answers and explanations, we have grappled with the unknowable, that which we are unable or not permitted to know. What does the history of the unknowable look like? What are the questions once thought to be unanswerable that have been answered? Are there enduring unknowables and if so, what are they?

This conference affords a rare opportunity for scholars from different fields to engage with each other and with the general public on this issue, particularly while we are living in what some might call a post-truth world. At a time when the distinction between what is true and what is not has become increasingly problematic, focusing attention on how we know what we cannot know has become essential.

*This event is free. Guests are encouraged to register.

This conference is partially supported by the National Science Foundation under Award Number SES 1837895
