Join us for an intimate evening of deja-food, as we pull each course from past benefit dinner menus of now extinct alternative Bay Area art spaces. As you might expect, our extraordinary chef will add a touch of contemporary color. Fine wine and alcohol will be served.
Support your favorite local alternative art space while simultaneously supporting the ghost of all your favorite local alternative art spaces.
