#AllBlackWeekend in the Bay started with hashtags: #BlackPantherSoLit #WakandaForever #FoodArtLoveNoir & ended with a BANG!
The premiere of Black Panther was a prelude to our, Food Art & Love event. With so much #BlackLove in the Bay Area and all the people who came from other states to be a part of the premiere the anticipation was insurmountable.
Saturday night in the International Suite at Oakstop in Oakland was the first Food, Art & Love Noir.
We brought out some of the Bay Area’s best to give attendees a night of culture, for us and by us.
Chef Satia of Fifty Seven North offered up hors d’oeuvres & bottomless mimosas & bellinis. Some of the offerings included food from their menu: jerk rib tips, rice pilaf, lamb meatballs & gouda grit cakes w/fire prawns.
Randy Babb of NoPrints premiered new pieces and showcased his vast collection of prints, canvases, jewelry and more. Guests walked away with prints he auctioned off and won an original piece in the raffle.
Several artists volunteered their time, art & expertise to this event and we are thankful. Thank you to everyone that came out and made this night magical. We look forward to seeing you in June at the next Food Art & Love Noir.
SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR ESTEEMED PHOTOGRAPHER @AESTHETICSONASH FOR CAPTURING US IN THIS AMAZING SPACE.
