What could possibly make the act of ordering and eating a slice of pizza better? Nothing really. Well, maybe if you got a free gift for eating pizza. Which is exactly what Classic Slice and dwellephant are giving you. Buy a slice of pizza from Classic Slice on Bay View Gallery Night, and dwellephant will draw you a picture right there on the spot. I mean, they’re making the pizza there. It’s only fair he makes the drawing right there, too. Will it be a unicorn? A dinosaur? Something saying “fart?” Probably all three, really. But you won’t know until he hands it over.

“The BS Show” – The grass is greener on the other side because there’s more bullsh** over there. It’s greener because it hasn’t snowed yet, because the seasons haven’t changed yet, because the seasons may never change over there, and when they do, no one on the other side will know what to do. The BS show is for all-weather people, who find ways to persevere and flourish regardless of the circumstances. The show will feature a collection of cards that promote this ideal. Choose two to send to a friend: the first with a personal message and the second postmarked for their friend to send to someone else. The artist, Jenie Gao, will mail out all participants’ cards following the event. This event will also feature live screen printing with t-shirts and posters available for purchase, plus a raffle of original artwork, live music, and food.
