FOOD SLAM 2011 AUCTION ITEMS
If you live in Milwaukee, you know 91.7 FM WMSE as one of our three public radio stations. They’ve been around almost as long as I have, are manned by actual humans 24 hours a day (hardcore!), and are funded by the people. That last thing? That’s why they have lots of fundraising events. And the best among them always seem to revolve around food.
This Friday, October 7, they’re having their annual Food Slam event. It’s one night a year where you can buy a ticket, sample deliciousness from roughly 30 local fooderies, and bid on silent auction items that, in the past, have included custom-painted toilet seats, Green Bay Packers tickets, a giant robot sculpture, and art from yours truly. For the last few years, I’ve been trying to make it music-related, since, you know, it’s a radio station and all. Last year, I painted Nina Simone. The year before that? Jim Carroll. And this year?
One-of-a-kind hand-painted vinyl records that were too scratched to play anymore. No, they aren’t actual Ramones or Devo records. No one would ever part with those. But it’s not the actual record that matters anyway.
If you want these? You have to attend the Food Slam. Or, find someone who IS attending, and have them bid for you. Get more Food Slam info here. See you Friday!
