- Chef Naoko's Bento Cafe.
Each day of PICA's annual Time-Based Art festival is characterized by two distinct phases: Running across town to get from a dance show at the Winningstad to a play at Imago to wherever else; and finishing off the night at Washington High with a few beers in the beer garden, desperately shoveling food into my mouth while trying to retain some faint air of competence.
PICA just announced detail's of TBA's food programming this year, and it's considerably more elaborate than the food trucks of years past. Click on over to the TBA blog for details on a Portland celeb-chef staffed outdoor kitchen, "Blind-Tasting Bingo," and more.
And reminder: We're giving away an all-access pass to TBA—which does indeed provide entrance to Washington High's food court, among many other earthly delights—on the TBA blog. Competition is still rather sparse. And if you're not sure about this whole TBA thing, you can browse our TBA event listings right here. Our guide hits the streets tomorrow, but short version: New curator Angela Mattox has curated a diverse, politically engaged lineup—plus some fun-sounding dance night at Washington High's late-night performance arm, the Works.
