Joshua Berman & Moon Nicaragua on the Travel Channel
Set your TiVo’s. Moon Nicaragua author Joshua Berman—as well as the book—will appear on the Travel Channel's highest-rated show, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, next Tuesday, June 2nd, at 10pm EST.
In the episode, filmed last February, Berman accompanies Zimmern to several off-the-beaten-path places in the Land of Lakes and Volcanoes—including a Nicaraguan chicken bus and Berman’s old Peace Corps village of La Trinidad, Estelí.
If you live in Boulder, Berman will be hosting a viewing party and fundraiser for the children of Empowerment International.
Here are the details:
When: June 2nd, 7-10pm
Where: Namasté Solar, 4571 N. Broadway, Boulder, Colorado
Cost: Suggested $10 donation (or anything you can give)
What: Browse and purchase pictures taken by the Nicaraguan children in EI's photography program. At 8 pm EI Executive Director, Kathy Adams, will talk about the program and what it was like to come up with a menu for Andrew Zimmern, "The Stomach of Steel" himself. From 9 to 9:45 pm there will be a screening of the episode.

There will also be a raffle for a handcrafted Nicaraguan guitar, made by Sergio Zepeda, who appears in the show as "one of the most famous guitar makers in Nicaragua" before taking Andrew to eat pig face.
If you're in Boulder, we hope you can make it!
