Root Division is hosting ~TASTE 2008~, an evening celebrating the beauty of art and food in San Francisco. TASTE 2008 will feature 8–10 acclaimed local chefs and over 15 visual artists for a night of food, drink, music, and art. Proceeds benefit local emerging artists, as well as Root Division's free after school art classes for Bay Area youth.
Participating restaurants and chefs include Andalu; Bar Bambino; Brick Restaurant & Bar; Cook Club; El Buen Comer & La Cocina; Maverick; Ozumo; and Zazil Coastal Mexican Cuisine.
Other offerings at the event include treats by Kara's Cupcakes, Ritual Coffee Roasters, and Trumer Pilsner, as well as a silent auction of gift certificates from over 30 Bay Area restaurants, spas, salons, and other venues, plus small artworks by local emerging artists.
A limited number of VIP tickets will be available, offering a private and advanced opportunity to experience TASTE 2008 at its fullest. In addition to early access (6pm) to appetizers, artwork, and specialty cocktails, each VIP ticket includes a special musical performance by Leyna Noel, a limited edition screen-printed bag by Rickshaw Bagworks filled with goodies and gifts from various venues around town.
