If you were ever categorized as “basic” by the Internet, perhaps you are lamenting the loss of pumpkin in your diet this fall as you construct a less PSL-dependent existence. Whatever, HATERS GONNA HATE. The lack-o’-jack-o’-lantern food is a shame given the pulpy nutrients inside: one cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin has 245% of your daily vitamin A and 16% of your daily potassium (not that you were getting that in your latte). Don’t give up on that pumpkin. Here is a hypothetical menu to eat...
    Halloween is approaching quickly, and there’s one city that has a little-known obsession with the holiday: Portland, Oregon! We asked Portland’s Sallie Ford and the ladies of her new, all-girl rock band for some tips and tricks for the season of the witch.

The annual festival, coming up Oct. 15, was founded by Stacey Hallal three years ago. All Jane, No Dick provides an enthusiastic stage for a diverse group of girl goofballs to shine in a business that, like most other businesses, regularly excludes and obscures women. Hallal...
Tomorrow, Oct. 14, join Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC – United) and One Billion Rising in a National Day of Action for ONE FAIR WAGE and an end to gender discrimination and sexual harassment in the restaurant industry. Help support women in an unfair wage war. Women of color and low-income women who depend on tips are especially put at a disadvantage.
