The Art of Drinking

BY ROGERIO IGARASHI VAZ
@ BRAZILIAN LIFESTYLE POWERED BY PECHAKUCHA ON SEP 16, 2015

"The bar is a great place to learn about geography because it has bottles from all over the world."

In "The Art of Drinking" from Tokyo's Brazilian Lifestyle Powered by PechaKucha, Bartender Rogerio Igarashi Vaz shares a facinating perspective on how the collision of Eurpoean, African, and aboriginal cultures of his native Brazil, informs much of his mixology philosophy and many of the drinks he serves up in his century-old-motiffed 12-seat bar in fashionable Ebisu, Tokyo. He talks about the more emphemeral duties of a Bartender while ellaborating on his shared love for twisting old world cocktails into re-imagined modern versions, sometimes even using the most unlikely of incredients, from bacon to seaweed, often substituting a classic drink's base with Brazil's distilled sugarcane spirit, Cachaça!

He signs off by saluding "Bartenders are tring to make a better world ...through Cocktails!"

Ice House on Main - Heritage Preservation in Support of Community Development

BY JOSE QUINTANA
@ VOL 10 ON FEB 28, 2017

Jose Quintana discusses AdventGX's heritage preservation model - a process that leverages a community centric mix of entrepreneurship, the arts, and science in support of the development of sustainable heritage preservation. The model is market demand driven along three sustainable development vectors: financial, social and environmental.

This conservative approach to community development uses behavioral and experimental economics to mitigate risks and lower barriers to entry when embarking on new heritage preservation initiatives, not only in underserved urban communities but also in rural settings where heritage based assets are particularly important contributors to quality of life improvements.
