I hate that San Francisco is having all this fun without me.
Aren't they sad I'm gone?
Wearing black, tearing a piece of their garment and boycotting merriment?
I guess not.
Almost 2 years ago SLIDELUCKPOTSHOW came to San Francisco.
I told everyone I could about it.
Some of you came and I met you and we ate great food and laughed too much and flirted and then
in a massive white room
at the edge of a part of San Francisco named after many a state in a country United by them
some stunning photography. Truly. I kid you not.
And those photos were not simply gorgeous because they were shown on big white walls.
But because they were.
And this year, next month, those photos could be yours!
Or ones taken by people you know and love or despise but appreciate or loathe but sleep with or play with but don't date or wish they noticed you but don't or are your xlover's new lover or are someone you've never met but might because you will bring the same casserole they do or any or all of the above.
As you well know, anything is possible in the delicious enclave of Northern California known as The Bay Area.
From SLIDELUCKPOTSHOW's recent press release:
SLPS SF II slideshow will feature emerging and established Bay Area
photographers and artists along with a selection of international
artists. The theme for this Slideluck is NOURISHMENT and
photographers, painters, and artists of all kinds are encouraged to
submit cohesive, creative, and thought-provoking pieces that speak to
NOURISHMENT of all kinds — physical, spiritual, environmental,
creative, etc. One half of the show will be unthemed, and
General-topic entries will also be accepted. Our guest curator,
renowned photographer Michael Jang, will be helping us make the final
creative decision about slideshows.
The SLPS SF crew is excited to be collaborating with Eat-Ins.org, a resource that helps people organize and participate in Eat-Ins. Eat-Ins are also potlucks, designed to bring people together, to strengthen communities, and to broaden the food movement. To get people talking and thinking about the food we bring as well as the images we see, we are extending our theme of NOURISHMENT to food items also. We ask that you write down the ingredients of your dish for people with restricted diets -- and now we invite you to include an extra sentence about how the food you brought NOURISHES you, be it your grandmother's recipe, a favorite comfort snack, or super brain food."
Please consider attending this event. I think you will not be disappointed.
Unless you are too cool for school.
Unless you are jaded.
Unless you are getting married that night.
Unless you hate photography.
Unless you hate sharing food with strangers.
Unless you're working at the restaurant you own that night.
Unless you think better things go on in Oakland.
