To Do: Free Fried Turkey Lessons!
A Former Dean strategist shares his bird-frying skills during Learn-a-palooza.
This weekend, the city's knowledge-sharing fest Learn-a-palooza will host almost 70 free classes, ranging from Polish survival skills to changing a bike flat. Buried in the catalog of left-field topics taught by regular folks are four food-centric tutorials. Each session is hosted by web consultant (he helped found Blue State Digital) and former Dean campaign strategist Clay Johnson at his Logan Circle-area home. Though developing online tactics for politicos is his forte, Johnson has another secret fund-raising weapon: The turkey fry. He's nibbled on the crispy fowl with Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy and numerous DNC faces. And this Saturday, he'll share his bird-frying skills.
Clay Johnson lives at 1521 Corcoran St NW. Click here for a full workshop schedule and more info.
