The next Oakland Stock is coming to Ratto’s!
Sunday, January 26th, 6pm. Finish your Restaurant Week experience with a visit to a PopUp dinner that funds artists’ projects!
Oakland Stock is part of the Sunday Soup network, supporting artists’ projects one bowl of soup at a time. Similar to a popup restaurant, but with a twist: diners pay a small dinner fee, feast on a gourmet meal, and listen to artists propose new projects that need funding. The diners vote on their favorite project to support and the winning artist takes the money to use for her/his work. The winner presents their project’s progress at the next meal, usually about 6 weeks later.
Le Menu: White Bean, Sausage & Escarole Stew, Creamy Pumpkin Soup (vegan), Fox and Lion Bread, and a hearty seasonal salad TBD
Chef + Hosts: Lexa Walsh & Elena Durante
Who’s Invited: Soup lovers, artists and those interested in supporting them.
Sometimes success in the art world seems pretty random. Oakland Stock offers an opportunity for community members to support the cultural production they find important through Food, Funding, Feedback, & Followup.
Support for Oakland Stock is provided by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program.
