Taste for Artisans 

When: Sat., April 3, 5-9 p.m. 2010
Price: free

The folks who resurrected Andy Warhol in an Emeryville warehouse last year and brought Best of the EastBay parties to the OaklandMuseum in 2008 and 2009 are trying to outdo themselves yet again. On Saturday, Apr. 3, the East Bay Express hosts a brand new iteration of its Taste for Art party, called Taste for Artisans. This time, we're hewing to an "urban hoedown" theme, with pie-eating contests, mechanical bull rides, creamed-corn wrestling, two stages of live music, exhibitions from De Young Museum and the Crucible, beer, wine, a raffle, DJs, swag, local farmers, valet bike parking from East Bay Bicycle Coalition, and fifty artisans selling their wares. Presented in conjunction with Mini Marzipan, the party will bring pastoral Americana to the heart of Jack London Square -- but it'll still be hella urban. It all goes down in Jack London Square Pavilion (98 Broadway, Oakland). 5-11 p.m., free. Proceeds from raffle tickets and beverage sales will benefit DrawBridge. 510-879-3700 or
