Whistle Stop Bar, 2236 Fern St (30th& Juniper)
San Diego, CA 92104 United States

July 27 @ 8:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Whistle Stop Bar, 2236 Fern St (30th& Juniper)
San Diego, CA 92104 United States

What happens when the dust settles, the skies clear, the rubble is swept away, and the cops leave? Disasters and catastrophes, natural or manmade, can be painfully arbitrary, but they can also be something we walked right in to. Or maybe we caused it all along.

San Diego, CA 92104 United States

They say scents and tastes trigger nostalgia and it's never more obvious with food. Food (the procuring of it, the cooking of it, the eating of it, the...disposal of it) defines our economy, our social structure, our planet's future *almost* as much as it defines our inner lives. There's that unforgettable meal you shared with that one person, or there's that time you started a grease fire in grandma's kitchen, or maybe you've never taken a happy bite of a…
