The Art of Drinking


"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!"

From Street Art to Hitchhiking, with a Bit of Birch Sap Drinking in Gothenburg

Here's our look at what's happening today in PechaKucha. Presentations We've got two new presentations on the site, one from Curitiba and one from St. Louis. In "The Street Is Alive" (in Portuguese), Jorge Galvao shares his graffiti work, and talks about his passion for street art, and then in "Hitchhiking for Sanity," Myles Dickason shares some of his hitchhiking adventures. Photos Here are today's event photos to take in, coming from a few of our PKN cities. Above, the scene at Providence's PKN Vol. 35, which was held back in February. PKN Kiruna Vol. 2 [Facebook] PKN Providence Vol. 35, as well as some older editons (Vol. 23, Vol. 24, Vol. 28) [Facebook] PKN San Diego Vol. 14 [Flickr] PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31 [Facebook] The photo above is from the recent PKN Gothenburg Vol. 31 (see the full Facebook gallery, all photos by Nettan Kock), and below is a report from that city's organizer, Jesper Larsson. You can also find all Gothenburg presentations (in Swedish) on its YouTube channel. On April 24th, we arranged our Vol. 31 of PechaKucha Gothenburg with a great turnout! Annelie Hulthén used mobile photos to show some of the backsides of the life of a politician. Our new city architect showed aerial photos of Gothenburg to show how much space is wasted on cars instead of human beings. Peter Korn told us about digging and how to plant exotic plants on stony Swedish hillsides. Sushi chef José Seruda spoke about "omakase" and his idea of Scandinavian sushi using locally produced fish and seafood. Siv Burell talked about the language Esperanto which celebrates 125 years this year. Klara Hansson spoke about perma culture and what's edible within the city centre. Jeanette Fagerström told the story that led up to her opening a sewing machine café in Gothenburg (similar to an internet café but with sewing machines instead of computers). Helena Andersson, Sebastian Popescu & Evelina Valtersson finished of the evening with a presentation about their project "Bostadsrotation" (residential rotation) where people change housing and routines with another person for a couple of days. In the break, Klara Hansson and her friends served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants such as Garlic-mustard, Celandine, Common wood sorrel, Dandelion, Sorrel, Lady's Mantle, Daisy, Rowan Leaf, Ground elder and last but not least Lovage. They also served fresh natural birch sap. In this walkthrough video during the beer break, organizer Jesper Larsson tries out the birch sap and talks to former presenter Sebastian Näslund about it. We totally forgot to celebrate it, but the last presentation of the evening was actually #300 since we started! Links Looking for some interesting PechaKucha-related articles? We've got you covered. The photo above shows the team behind the soon-to-launch PKN series in Muscat (the organizer, Sara Fida, is second from right). Some PKN Muscat coverage in the form of "Creative Connections" [The Week] "Speakers' series a hot ticket among young Vancouverites" [Metro Vancouver] "PechaKucha Night is back, bringing artists of all types together for creative conversation" [Denver Westworld] Calendar Tonight (May 16), it's PKN Wagga Wagga Vol. 6, and tomorrow night (May 17) you can look to these three events: PKN Hanoi Vol. 4, PKN For a peek at what's coming later this month, you can always check our calendar.
