Local Flavor at Fabric8: Food and art as more than chocolate syrup in your spin-n-swirl »

Vegansaurus love food, obviously! We also love art, which maybe doesn’t come across so clearly, but we appreciate culture across the spectrum, as we’re sure you must, too. Human beings are sort of obligated to evolve, emotionally and culturally and philosophically and all that, what with our great big capacious brains ready for us to fill them.
You’ll have an opportunity to consider food and art tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 8 at “Local Flavor,” a group show of Bay Area artists’ work “focusing on the centuries-old relationship between the visual and culinary arts” at Fabric8 gallery. The exhibition is curated by Tamara Palmer (of, among other publications, SFoodie blog) and Fabric8, and will feature works by artists like Brandon Dicks, Nome Edonna, Rachel Major, Jason Mecier, Phokos, Reuben Rude, and Andy Stattmiller. Great? Great!

Greater: Olivia Ongpin of Fabric8 says that every Friday for the duration of the exhibition—through Nov. 1—the gallery will host food vendors, both their regular rotation of food carts and “street food served up by local restaurants.” She also says that even though they haven’t set the menus for each Friday yet, Fabric8 “always try to have a vegan option.”
Greatest: The opening reception for “Local Flavor” is at Fabric8 gallery at 3318 22nd St. (at San Jose Avenue) from 7 to 10 p.m. Ms. Ongpin tells us that Soul Cocina will be there, and she “will make sure he brings something vegan.” Isn’t she lovely? Now you have NO EXCUSE not to go and look at the art, which you should do anyway because remember, we’re humans and we should always be learning, or at least trying new things. Also your Vegansaurus may have implicitly obligated you to eat the vegan artistic food. Regardless: Culture: get some.
