For years the Slideluck Potshow series of events have always been some of my favorite nights out: from the early DIY potlucks on Chelsea studio rooftops watching new artists present their work in fun, fast slide shows. It’s always the perfect night: really cool people, good food, amazing venues, discovering new art and there’s usually a pretty good drink special to seal the deal. So it’s no wonder that it’s caught on like wild fire and spread to over 40 cities internationally. The super cool thing is that each show is hyper-local featuring local artists in a space that’s completely authentic to the theme of the night.
This Saturday night all my favorite things come together to create something so awesome my little heart may stop beating:
Technically the flier is seriously not cool enough to convey the fun and cacophony of amazing people who will be there. But you should jump on the pre-sale tickets now. They’re $10 in advance OR $10 at door if arriving by bike & $15 on foot.
We will begin with a Taste of Harlem & the UWS with a downhome BBQ, soul food, and a number of other delicious dishes provided by local restaurants to chose from. Participants include Billie’s Black Gourmet Soul, Busters, Miss Mamie’s Spoonbread , Bier International , The 5 and Diamond, Galore Catering . Beer will be lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
