These days, art, food, and apparel don't amount to more than a hill of beans. Tomorrow, from noon until 3 p.m., or while legumes last, food activist and artist Mark Andrew Gravel
will be serving up bowls of the soupy stuff at Gravel & Gold
, a new gallery, shop, good vibes epicenter, and CSA drop-off location set up in the old Minnie Wilde space (3266 21st St. at Valencia). A Meatpaper
player, the principal behind Agrarian Art Labs, and publisher of Food + Sex Magazine
, Gravel will scoop you either black beans with rice or gallo pinto
, a prominent national dish of Nicaragua, depending on, presumably, his chefly whim. Come scope the luscious Eatwell Farm
produce, get pre-colonial on some beans, meet people, and, you know, talk about things.
