Wow. Just enjoyed my first night at the Works, the after-hours venue for the TBA festival (www.pica.org). There were ALOT of people there... and luckily for me, many of them were hungry. It was kind of like a big reunion... meeting up with folks who haven't had Katherine Hepburn's brownie since last year... poor things.
Do come to Washington High School for the Works (10pm - late) sometime... or many times... between September 4 and the 13th. If you've ever wondered what it looks like in there, now is your chance. Wander around and check out scary old school books, tell your story on wide-ruled paper, find the record player with Harry Belafonte and Ray Charles records at the ready, wander the beer garden and enjoy the beautiful lights, and go to the auditorium for the fabulous performances. And yes, of course, buy a cookie or two from your favorite cookie lady. As you see by the photo, I've been slaving over a hot stove just for you.
