Evan Weissman on why Warm Cookies of the Revolution is good for your civic health

Evan Weissman of Buntport Theater describes his growing side-project Warm Cookies of the Revolution as a "civic health club." All about getting people together to discuss community issues and have fun, the growing monthly event just naturally draws out ideas in a positive environment. This month, he's invited three very different folks to present differing views of the perfect government, but the evening will also include cooperative LEGO city-building and, well, warm cookies and milk.

In advance of tonight's session at Buntport, we chatted with Weissman about the series and the theme; the Q&A follows. For details visit the Facebook event page.
