My Mini Beast Menagerie – a fundraiser for David George Gordon

Seattle events and adventures, guide to arts and entertainment

Come to a little soiree and take a look at some lovely ink sketches by Karen Luke Fildes, in support of dear Cafe Racer friend, David George Gordon. The event is Thursday, March 7th 6pm-10pm at Cafe Racer at 5828 Roosevelt Way NE in Seattle, and Cafe Racer will be donating 10% of the evening’s sales to Mr. Gordon.

Mr. Gordon, Bug Chef and Musician Extraordinaire with Zizzy Zi Zixxy and God’s Favorite Beefcake, was admitted to the UW hospital after suffering a stroke. The stroke was in his brain stem, not the fore brain, so he has not experienced any loss of his cognitive abilities, musical skills nor insect-cooking prowess. But he needs our help, and we will be offering original illustrations and native sketches used for the upcoming re-release of The Eat a Bug Cookbook, for sale to help offset his medical costs.

There will also be some slimier works for sale from the Secret World of Slugs and Snails along with other choice mini beasts for your purchasing pleasure.
