      About Fish Public: Restaurant visionary Tracy Borkum manifests a quaint 3,500-square-foot seafood eatery in San Diego’s charming Kensington neighborhood with Fish Public, which opened doors in June 2013. Fish offers quality sea fare at accessible price points and draws culinary inspiration from the Atlantic’s Gulf Coast, New England and English Coast as well as West Coast of America, Baja and Pacific Rim regions. Unique offerings include an artisan retail area and a custom chef’s oyster counter with peek-a-boo views into the kitchen. The interior design, spearheaded by Borkum herself, is reminiscent of a Nantucket-inspired beach cottage with a light and airy appeal. Focal details include whitewashed wood accents and unexpected lighting fixtures fashioned from old fishing nets. Fish Public’s beverage program is comprised of draft craft beers, an international wine selection and an eclectic cocktail menu with all mixers, syrups and infusions made in-house.

      Fish Public is located at 4055 Adams Avenue and is open Sunday from 5-9pm, Tuesday through Thursday from 5-9pm, and Friday through Saturday from 5-10pm. Happy Hour is Tuesday-Sunday from 5-6:30pm. For more information please visit www.fishpublic.com or check or call 619.281.4014.

    2. 14th Annual Cesar E. Chavez Community Tribute and Celebration
      5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      “From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength.” Cesar E. Chavez

      Friday evening, April 11, 2014, Project New Village (PNV) will convene its 14th Annual Cesar E. Chavez Community Tribute and Celebration, to honor the life, lessons and legacy of an uncompromising advocate for social justice, environmentalist, consumer advocate, labor leader and farm worker.

      This year’s theme is “Food Injustice: Social Consciousness Raising, Remembered, and Revisited

      The event will be hosted by the San Diego Community college District Continuing Education on the campus of Educational Cultural Complex at 4343 Ocean View Blvd. San Diego California, 5:00pm – 8:00pm.

      To commemorate the of legacy of Cesar E. Chavez, Project New Village has called together civic and community leaders, activists, and food advocates to re-inspire and renew our collective interest to rebuild the “movement” for social justice. We see the struggle for food justice as an emerging civil rights platform and food security as a compelling need, especially among the most vulnerable in our society.

      We believe that this “transformed movement” has to be inclusive in the spirit of the founding of the United Farm Workers (UFW). “I think that whatever nationality you are, you should be treated equally, otherwise you don’t have equality”, said Philip Vera Cruz, noted Filipino activist and co-founder, along with Larry Itliong, of the UFW.
