On Thursday December 2nd, the Meatpaper, Blue Bottle, and SFMOMA crew are at it again, with another ~NOW PLAYING/FOOD & THOUGHT~ party on the roof. The theme for this one is sure to be a crowd pleaser: sandwiches. There will be tasty offerings by chefs Chris Kronner from Bar Tartine, Jerome Waag from Chez Panisse, Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food , and Leah Rosenberg and Caitlin Freeman of Blue Bottle ($5 per tasting plate). There will also be complimentary wine by Swanson Vineyards, and beer by Trumer Pils. The rooftop event is free with half-price museum entry. (Free for SFMOMA members.) It starts at 6pm.
At 6:30pm, there will be a curator talk, and then a screening of Bussotti’s Rara (film), with live piano accompaniment by the director at 7pm. Later, downstairs there will be a cash bar and free bites from Knead Patisserie, The Terrace Room, Paragon, Ozumo, Tres Agaves, and Luce to keep guests fortified for the live music performance at 9pm, featuring Bussotti and sfSoundGroup. You can read more about Bussotti and his restored film here. And the opening party for Stephanie Syjuco’s Shadowshop will be right next door, a project in the SFMOMA exhibition The More Things Change—this mom-and-pop style store stocks hundreds of pieces of artists’ works for sale, from tchotchkes to zines, with 100% of pre-tax sales from Shadowshop going directly to the artists.
