Join Us For A Free Film Screening Friday Night, August 15!

Flyer for a film

Backyard Industry and Illinois Public Media, along with several other Urbana organizations and businesses, are helping to get the film Spinning Plates on a local screen - and it's happening outside this weekend! The film follows three very different restaurants and investigates what keeps them going; the tagline is "It's not what you cook. It's why", which fits right in with BYI's mission.

Things will get started around dusk in the Busey Bank parking lot at Main and Race in Downtown Urbana. Bring your family and friends, and bring your own chairs, blankets, and snacks (you can also do carryout from one of the nearby restaurants) as well.

Some of the BYI team will be in attendance - see you there!

Some people eat their food and share their appreciation with others at the table. Others like to write about their food and share it with their readers. Still others prefer to take photos of their food and share the photos with, well, everyone. In this episode of In My Backyard, Lisa Bralts takes photos of her lunch and discusses the recent food photography phenomenon with professional photographer Justine Bursoni.
