Item Description

First, Baratunde Thurston (co-founder of Jack & Jill Politics, Host of "Future Of" on Science Channel and Web Editor of The Onion) will give you a tour of the rarely-seen offices of The Onion in SoHo. Witness firsthand the disarray and stagnant air that inspires America's Finest News Source. Then, join Baratunde for an intellectually and epicurially delicious meal.

Baratunde Thurston is a comedian and vigilante pundit.  He was nominated for the Bill Hicks Award for Thought Provoking Comedy, declared a Champion of the First Amendment by Iowa State, and called “someone I need to know” by Barack Obama. He has appeared on ABC, NPR, the BBC, CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times and ComedyCentral.com.  Baratunde is the co-founder of Jack & Jill Politics and performs regularly in New York City, where he works by day as Web Editor and politics czar for The Onion. He hosts Popular Science's Future Of on the Science Channel, and he lives in Twitter.
