Even if you aren't into football, Tavern 29's biergarten still makes for a great escape this Monday
Now that the shock of school starting--and the return of college students--has worn off, isn't it about time you returned to your normal routine? We hope that includes going out at least one night this week, possibly to one of these unique events:

Monday Night Football, Tavern 29, 47 East 29th Street, Monday, 6 p.m.

Football fans bummed about "Sunday Funday" being over can celebrate the first Monday night game of the season with 50 cent wings and Sixpoint beers, which will be featured by way of a special flight of four fall beers--one for every quarter if you like drinking games--plus a pint of your choosing. The tavern will showcase some of the brewery's newer offerings like the Mad Scientist #14 Graetzer.

Farmworkers: In the Borderlands of Food Justice, Haven's Kitchen, 109 West 17th Street, Tuesday, 8 p.m.

New Yorkers love to celebrate what's on their plates, but we rarely have such an overt chance to reflect on the people who make those dishes possible. Celebrating the Justice for Farmworkers Campaign,Rural & Migrant Ministry hosts an evening of activism with food, drink, and live music by local New York band Tyson. The event will feature a silent auction as well as keynote speaker Sanjay Rawal, whose film Food Chains calls attention to farm workers rights. Tickets are $75 and include one complimentary drink.

War Correspondents at The Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Brewery, 79 North 11th Street, Brooklyn, Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.

On the twelfth anniversary of September 11, war correspondent C.J. Chivers and Steve Hindy--a former Middle East correspondent and co-owner of Brooklyn Brewery--will speak about the 2001 day that changed everything as well as current conflicts in the Middle East. Tickets are $25 and include one complimentary beer; all proceeds go to support the efforts of Reporters Instructed in Saving Colleagues (RISC).

LET'S HONOR FARMWORKERS ALL ACROSS AMERICA .... Slavery in the tomato fields of Florida .... ?!! ..... Or what about its strawberry fields, lime trees, and orange groves .... Or the shriveled wine product that they've been growing in The Panhandle and Northern Florida .... What the hell is a Panhandle, anyway ....? Some derelict and degenerate form of begging for money, drugs, etc .... Maybe the cotton fields of Mississippi and Alabama .... Third World USA .... Muscle Shoals .... THE RURAL STATES .... THE RED BLOCK STATES .... THE ECONOMICALLY IMPOVERISHED AND BLIGHTED STATES .... " That's not clean air and blue sky open space, rolling fields without rat congestion of Northern cities .... it's actually economically under-developed and undeveloped AMERICAN WASTELAND .... GET THOSE LANDFILLS READY" .... As Michigan and other states decide to follow the path of BEING A RIGHT TO WORK STATE ALSO, IT IS THIS FORM OF AMERICAN SLAVERY THAT WE NEED TO FOCUS OUR ERADICATION EFFORTS TO WORK WITH A NEW SUPER DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE .... AS YOU MAY KNOW, ALL ATTEMPTS TO RESOLVE EVEN THE MOST MINOR EMPLOYMENT CONCERN AFFECTING MANAGEMENT IS REFERRED TO 3 GOVERNMENT BRANCHES IN FLORIDA .... EITHER OSHA AND EPA .... EITHER DEPT OF LABOR, AGAIN ..... OR EITHER EEOC .... THE EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION .... What type of state or government regulation of a state only refers you or requests that you construe your employment concern to either 3 areas of concern .... For example, if I disagree with a termination policy or refusal, denial, or non-existent appeal rights .... I would be told .... CONTACT EEOC .... because if you we're to contact Dept. of Labor .... all they would say is that they're TOO BUSY ENFORCING MINIMUM WAGE FOR MIGRANT, FARM, AND AGRICULTURAL WORKERS .... and if, for example, you thought YOU SMELLED SOME HEAVY HASHISH, ANGEL DUST, OR SPICE IN A BUILDING'S ELEVATOR, PARKING LOT, OR LAVATORIES AND REST ROOMS ( or maybe you saw some nudes or naked people in the office .... ) .... YOU WOULD BE TOLD THAT IT IS AN OSHA OR EPA CONCERN ( maybe, EPA, if you thought there was some chronic long-tern environment polluter and contamination concern .... ) RIGHT-TO-WORK ENFORCES SLAVERY ....

HIRE AND FIRE AT WILL, DOESN'T NECESSARILY GUARANTEE A GOOD WAGE .... ECONOMICALLY SPEAKING, IT WON'T BID UP OR FAIRLY COMPETE FOR PAYROLL WAGES .... IT REMINDS ME OF A PROVINCIAL STIMULUS THAT GIVES WORKERS, JOB APPLICANTS, AND EMPLOYEES A TEMPORARY MINOR REWARD UNTIL A TASK HAS BEEN COMPLETED ....

PLEASE DON'T COMPARE AMERICAN "SLAVERY" TO SLAVERY IN THE SUDAN, ETHIOPIA, THE IVORY COAST, ETC ... SOUTH KOREA, EL SALVADOR, INDIA, POLAND ....

BECAUSE AMERICAN WORKERS HAVE SOME RIGHTS AND MANY PRIVILEGES THAT SEEM TO BE "HUMANE" UNLIKE SOME PARTS WITHIN THE REST OF THE WORLD ....

AS FAR AS EMPLOYMENT-AT-WILL AND RIGHT TO WORK

STATES ARE CONCERNED ..... WOULDN'T YOU RATHER HAVE ORGANIZED LABOR AND UNIONS WITH THE RISKS OF THUGGERY, CORRUPTION, THEFT, MISREPRESENTATION, AND THE UNDERMINE OF CORPORATE AMERICA .... ?

AND UNIONIZED STATE AND FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND CIVIL SERVANTS ARE STILL YET ANOTHER MATTER ....
