Drink a Beer and See Some Carnivorous Plants at the Conservatory of Flowers

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Yeah, I know I’m just pasting in a press release, but I’m crazy busy today.  Plus I wanna get out and enjoy some of this good weather.  Also the good thing about this event is that you can go and then still come to my party afterwards.  So fuck it, here it goes:

Have a beer with friends amongst the fiendish and fabulous carnivorous plants in the Conservatory of Flowers’ special exhibition Chomp 2! Return of the Carnivorous Plants. San Francisco’s very own jungle under glass is staying open for the 21 and older crowd on Wednesday, September 22 and offers a special evening of ‘killer’ entertainment.

Artists Sarah Filley and Yvette Molina, who are currently working on a plan to float a giant terrarium on Lake Merritt, bring their Mobile Plant Ambassador along — a visual mash up of ice cream carts, nostalgic vending stands and Barnum and Bailey attractions — and will invite a lucky handful of visitors to craft and take home their very own carnivorous plant terrariums.

Visitors can explore all of the Conservatory’s galleries, create an instant souvenir in a photo booth, check out a prototype of Filley and Molina’s Wonderarium and more.
