Just a reminder that Top of Folsom, the event featuring fine art with food and wine set atop the scenic rooftop of the parking garage in historic Old Folsom is Saturday, Sept. 15 from 6-9 p.m.
It should be quite an evening -- featuring 20 artists, 20 wineries and 15 chefs. Live music, too. All for a good cause.
If that's not enough, Karen Holmes of Karen's Bakery & Cafe fame will be making a "public salad," based on a performance art piece first showcased by American artist Alison Knowles at the Tate Museum in London in 1962. In this updated version, Holmes will have help from culinary students at American River College. I'm not privy to all the details, but expect massive amounts of salad greens to be dropped -- or tossed -- from the fourth-floor level of the garage to the third level, where they will be caught in a large tarp. A pitch fork could be used to toss the greens with the dressing. This might make more sense when you see it in person -- after a glass or two of old vine zin.
Tickets are $75. Proceeds go to the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary and the Folsom Historic District. For more information or to purchase tickets online, click here.
