Bean-Out @ Gravel & Gold: 5 Courses for $20

Smart Dress only? Don't tell me what to wear!

Five course meals, especially those featuring locally-sourced and organic ingredients, are not something us broke-asses get to experience very often. They can cost upwards of black-market-kidney prices and usually take place in venues that frown upon our thrift store duds. But not this one!

On Sunday, Mark Andrew Gravel of Bouwerie presents “Bean-Out,” a temporary pop-up restaurant at one of my favorite Mission stores, Gravel & Gold. For $20 you will enjoy a five-course menu of homemade cheese on toast, Little City Gardens salad (remember them from last week?), chilled bean soup, grits and greens, and cake and cream. It’s a BYOB affair and you can RSVP here.
 Gravel (as in Mark Andrew, who coincidentally shares the store’s name) has been doing some interesting things with beans for many months now and this will surely be another one of his fascinating and delicious events.

If you happen to attend the earlier 6pm shift, follow it up with a stupendous line-up at this month’s Seaweed Sway Showcase. Jessie Woletz’s Seaweed Sway always puts on excellent shows, but this one is particularly special because my dear friend Jen Grady will be performing her amazing solo act (cello & voice!).

And if you’re looking to fill your entire day with rad events in the Mission, don’t forget the FREE 4pm Port O’Brien show that Andrew posted about the other day!

Chloe - Pennywise Reporter

Chloe's youth was split between California and Kauai, frolicking on a macadamia nut farm in the tropics and landing finally in the Bay Area. Raised by super-Jew hippies, and the youngest of three sisters, Chloe learned early the virtues of thrift, economy, and green living. To the chagrin of her parents (who hoped, of course, for a Jewish doctor or lawyer), Chloe has put her degree from UC Berkeley to great use by becoming a folk singer. As "Chloe Makes Music" she plays shows throughout SF and beyond, donning vintage frocks, selling handmade merch, and pinching pennies as she sings for her supper. Calling Berkeley home for the last six years, you can think of Chloe as the website's East Bay Correspondent, opening your eyes to the hippie-filled, tree-hugging, organic-loving, vegan-eating, but way-overlooked and awesome assets of Berkeley, Oakland, and beyond.
