Free Food (and Art) Alert
I was walking by Open Source Gallery the other evening when I noticed that the window was all fogged up with steam from a large soup pot inside. The gallery is running a "Soup Kitchen" this month, offering free homemade soup around 7pm every night until December 24th. It's usually crowded, and people bring their own beer and wine. One night, the soup was borscht, and it smelled delicious.
Whoever is doing the cooking on a given night can set up a solo show in the gallery's space. One night, small oil paintings hung on the wall, and last night, there was a movie being projected onto the wall.
