I am not even going to attempt to rewrite this press release for this amazing-sounding event: ~OPENFUTURE: SPINNING MARINETTI'S WHEELS~, part of Metal + Machine + Manifesto = Futurism's First 100 Years.

"Feeding on Futurism's appetite for destruction, OPENrestaurant revisits F. T. Marinetti's provocative Futurist Cookbook from 1932—which combined polemics with actual recipes designed to transform society—and realigns the movement's arguably fascist palate with a more sustainable approach to life. Look for cyclists delivering a locally sourced "wild beast" and a women-only kitchen carving edible sculptures against a backdrop of stadium seating, emergency sirens, and spinning walls. Guests attending this clamorous banquet can expect to exalt in sounds, smells, and constant motion, and delight in, among other things, beef ice-cream cones, avocado cocktails, and flying panforte."

You got all that? See you there. (And don't forget your camera.)
