by Abigail Javellana

Downtown-&-Halstead

DOWNTOWN & HALSTED is an art bar in Forbestown which recreates the revolutionary art and food scene of the famed Halsted street in Chicago known for its public art, galleries, restaurants, and bars that make up this favorite neighborhood hangout.

From Buffalo tenders to crispy pata, its menu offers international comfort food conceptualized by Chef Marco Legasto of Prime 101 and Abuelas. It incorporates made-from-scratch ingredients from freshly made pasta, bread, jams and dishes with no MSG or pre-mixes. While Singaporean based bartender Jason Gray fixed up designer cocktails using fresh pressed juice and premium spirits as their base.

Did I mention they sell the cheapest alcohol by the bottle in the area?

Green Wanderer Print Ads PS V6-02

On August 11 to 13, 2017 at Central Square, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines’ National Youth Council and the SSI Group, Inc. are holding the Green Wanderer Travel Fair, where traveling meets sustainability and awareness.

A project led by the National Youth Council of WWF-Philippines, Green Wanderer will be offering sustainable travel options—from products made by local artisans to ecotourism destinations with uniquely curated itineraries for the curious, green traveler.

 

 

On Sustainable Living

Environmental Pollution

As the Chairperson of WWF-Philippines National Youth Council, Alexa Cancio highlights the importance of sustainable living. 

Young people, having access to various information particularly through social media, are aware of the different social and environmental issues taking place all over the world. We believe that many of these issues can be addressed on the individual level by improving the way we live, which is why our council of eight members felt sustainable living would be the most appropriate message to push not just with young people, but with the Philippine society in general.

She adds, “Right now, there isn't any common online platform to find all the sustainable travel options in the Philippines, which is why it is timely to organize a travel fair like Green Wanderer that will house various sustainable options for the people.
