For the past year or so, 18 Reasons
(593 Guerrero at 18th St.) has really had its finger on the pulse
-- albeit a rapidly weakening one stymied by clogs. On Saturday, Dec. 12, the gallery and food appreciation/education space won't be celebrating pork belly or sausage, but another heart-stoppingly tasty animal-derived ingredient key to our forays into homemade amateur food porn. Butterfest '09 will feature a hands-on butter-crafting demonstration, blind tasting, butter-themed potluck, and Like Buttah!, informal soapbox-style testimonials to the sweet golden slab, the first annual Butterfest is coming. For 18 Reasons members, potluck contributors, and storytellers, it'll cost $10 to attend, $15 to the general public, 6-8 p.m. RSVP to info@18Reasons.org.
