COOL FEAST: Delightful Dishes at nice prices by Natasha Pickowicz

Menu is a homage to San Diego Mexican food (horchata, pork posole, ropa vieja + cotija tacos, deconstructed California burritos)

Reflections on Cool Fest XI:

Cool Fest Eleven marked the return to La Brique and the absolute perfection of the event. A policy of ‘bring your own cans’ was introduced, which solved millions of problems. The concept of a guest chef, using the kitchen to sell food to festivalgoers on their own, independent of the fest, was discovered, and former Ithaca impersaria¬†Natasha Li Pickowicz¬†created dishes expanding the field of programming at Cool Fest to the taste buds. The concept of a lounge at the back of the live room that seats about 5 people with a small television playing David Lynch movies all weekend was pioneered. The first ever VHS DJ set in the world ever was pulled off. Performances were outrageously good. We had a Yoga class with live music. Xarah Dion resumed co-booking and organizing, along with Carlo Della Motta. Nearly everything worked perfectly. Because that is how we roll.
