Well, it’s not exactly 7x7’s Big Eat, but it should be fun anyway: on Thursday August 9th, the Contemporary Jewish Museum will be hosting The Big Eat: A CJM Mixtape, a collection of presentations and talks exploring the connections between art and food in Jewish culture. Participating chefs include Leo Beckerman and Evan Bloom of Wise Sons Deli, Leah Rosenberg of Blue Bottle’s Rooftop Café, and distiller Arne Hillesland from Distillery 209. The program will be from 6:30pm-8:30pm, and tickets are $10, including general admission to the museum. 736 Mission St. at 3rd St., 415-655-7800.
