Program, Menu & details below. SEATING LIMITED! Order now.

Talk by Charles Mudede - 5pm
Supper by MWashington - 7 - 9pm
Music selected by OCnotes, Bob Catt, & *LIVE* Special Guests - 7 - 12am


At 5pm, Charles Mudede offers a new talk: “The Birth of the Bad Check”, keying off Martin Luther King’s legendary reference to the “bad check” that the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom set out to collect from a deadbeat America. Tonight’s is the first of a series of talks that Charles will be offering in Seattle and Berlin over the next several weeks. See below for more details.

Following Mr. Mudede’s presentation (and your penetrating questions), Chef M. Washington provides a delectable six-course light supper.

As the evening commingles with savory comestibles, selektor Bob Catt will take command at the sonic console, conditioning the social context with his gentle mastery of ancient grooves. About 9pm one might expect a performance from surprise guests. (Or one might not, since it is a surprise.) Finally, OCnotes will take the late shift, piloting our rhapsodic soul craft from the ethereal to an earthly return.


Chile Peanut appetizers
