Tomorrow: How to Homestead
|The Knuckle Knockers.|
Where: Mission Recreation, 745 Treat (at 20th St.)
When: Sat., May 7, 4-10 p.m.
Cost: $5 (free with a potluck dish)
The rundown: Hitch up the wagons and head to town. Tomorrow the Mission Recreation Center hosts an old-timey day of homesteading fun, starting with a workshop on making kombucha, soda, and sauerkraut (just like your ancestors did!) from Lauren Anderson, director of Produce to the People. Next up is a bring-a-dish potluck and BBQ, with extra points for bringing vittles circa 1865 (think barley and lard). After dinner is a series of instructional movies, possibly projected onto a burlap sack, with musical accompaniment by the Sk8 Sisters. And finishing off the evening's festivities is a contra line dance. Who will lead the dance, you ask? Why it's the Knuckle Knockers, natch.
