Win 2 Tickets to "May I Be Frank?" at Nux Wellness Centre

Posted by Amie / September 25, 2012

win tickets to may I be frankWant to see what happened when a 54-year old Sicilian from Brooklyn got obsessed with a raw, vegan, organic cafe in San Fransisco? Then talk to the film's director via Skype about filming the real-life doc? You could buy tickets, OR you could win them, and isn't that much better (free=better)? Besides, now that POP Montreal's over, what else are you doing on a Friday night?

How to win: Leave a comment here by Thursday at 11:00pm about your favourite food to eat raw (oysters and sustainable Pacific tuna belly sashimi aren't exactly vegan, but I'm going with those...) and/or what you love or hate about Crudessence (Montreal's only raw, organic sit-down restaurant).

More on the film, in case I didn't sell you on it:

May I Be Frank documents the transformation of Frank Ferrante's life. Frank, a 54 year old Sicilian from Brooklyn finds himself living in San Francisco struggling with addiction and depression. He is severely overweight and must rely on pharmaceutical drugs to combat his Hepatitis C. One day Frank unknowingly stumbles into a local restaurant in San Francisco. Cafe Gratitude, a raw, organic and vegan cafe. Frank becomes friends with the staff and is invited back to come into the cafe everyday for the next month.

What took place over the 42 days wasn't anything the boys or Frank could have expected. Franks life dramatically shifts in ways far beyond his physical body. Initially believing he was just going to lose some weight and get healthy, Frank and the boys had no idea it would affect so many aspects of his life. The film transforms the lives of everyone involved, and through Franks story the viewer is given the opportunity to see transformation for themselves. The film becomes documentation about the human condition, and what it means to really fall in love again.

If you don't win, you can still buy tickets online, and they'll be available for purchase this Friday night before the show at Nux at 5221 Blvd de Maisonneuve West, right across from Vendome station (though they sold out last time).

My favorite food, and its raw, is cherimoya! I bought a box of freshly arrived organic cherimoya from Gaétan Bono in April 2011 and it was the most divine food experience I ever had! So delicious I was in awe rolling on the floor smiling and it lasted all afternoon! I only saw them that one day at the warehouse and never again.

My fav raw food would have to be raw vegan cheesecake made with cashews. Cruddessence has a variety of orgasmic desserts of the like and despite their "raw" genre have extremely filling food. Their tacos are to die for.

Lauren, you win! I first fell in love with their key lime pie three years ago. And their blueberry cheesecake is the best and only cheesecake I can/want to eat. Please email me at and I'll let you know how to pick up the tickets at the event.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or
go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused ..
Any tips? Thanks a lot!
