The Wood Fired Dinner Series @ Biga San Diego - 12/14/2017 Dual wood ovens. Imported from Italy. It's one of the things that we take pride in at BIGA. And now, we will share our pride and joy with our friends and colleagues. Our Wood Fired Dinner Series will be a showcase of chefs, fire and ingredients. Over the next several months, our BIGA kitchen will team up with some of the most beloved chefs in the county to create an unparalleled and memorable dining experience for our guests. These prix fixe, four-course tasting menus are meant to highlight a chef, using our wood ovens and some of the best products we can procure locally, as well as wines from around the world. The next dinner (December 14, 2017) will feature guest chef Drew Bent of Lola 55, which will soon be opening in East Village. After plying his trade at such beloved spots as Tender Greens, Puesto, Blind Lady and Carnitas Snack Shack, Drew will be working alongside our team to make delicious wood fired cuisine. He will be demonstrating his impeccable technique, some of which was learned from his time at Noma - Tulum in the summer of 2017. We are excited to see what he produces using our unique wood fire! And the menu is now here! Check it out: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3095914 Our third Wood Fired Dinner (February 8, 2018) features Mike Arquines of The Lab Dining, a high-end private dinner service. You may know Mike from one of his other endeavors -- from his roasting at local and beloved Mostra Coffee, his 100+ beer collaborations throughout the world, or from his dozens of pop up and collaboration dinners that he has contributed to in San Diego. His food is adventurous, ambitious, beautiful and delicious. Throw in some wood fire and WOW! Nick Brune, a native of Louisiana, has been using his specialized cooking technique since he was young. This well-respected chef, for our fourth installment (April 12, 2018) of the Dinner Series, has cooked with some of the biggest names in the restaurant world, and has also cooked for some of the most well-known people in the world. As the founder of renown catering company Eco Caters, Nick has also been at the forefront of the trend of farm to table (although he would never call it that) and is one of the best beer pairing chefs in the city. We have seen what he does with fire. Wait 'til you taste what he does with it. Our fifth Dinner on June 14, 2018 will feature Accursio Lota of Solare Ristorante in Liberty Station. Accursio, a native of Sicily, has received numerous accolades including various Chef of the Year awards and, most recently, he won the World Pasta Championship! His elevating of traditional Italian cuisine, particularly using native and local ingredients, has created a loyal and fervent following. One of the best seats in town is sitting at the Chef's Window at Solare. From there, you can see (and smell) first-hand how he and his team cook the food that will be presented to you. Once he gets into BIGA, we are VERY excited to see how his immaculate and creative cuisine is executed using our wood ovens. Finally, to close out the series on August 9, 2018, our sixth and final Dinner will feature Chef Davin Waite of Wrench and the Rodent in Oceanside. This amazingly inventive and brave chef believes in using the entire product as the only way to fully respect that ingredient. From Banana Peel Tacos to BBQ Fish Ribs, Davin is only limited by the forces of nature and physics. A supremely talented chef, Davin will bring his skills to BIGA to highlight some of the most amazing ingredients from his neighbors in Oceanside, Cyclops Farms, for a mid-summer night to remember.

Hotels/Motels @ Lafayette Hotel - 12/15/2017 Fallen Tree Exhibitions invites art enthusiasts, artists, collectors, press, curators, and patrons of culture, to check-in to the third unofficial art fair in San Diego! Hotels/Motels (Unofficial Art Fair 2017) presents emerging and established artists who are working in a wide-range of media and disciplines. Artists from all over San Diego and Los Angeles will transform hotel rooms into galleries, stages, and project spaces. In addition, to this carefully selected group of visual and performing artists, Hotels/Motels, will be joined by partnering artist collectives, contemporary galleries, and cultural organizations. Each of their rooms will embody a unique life of its own that reflects the design of the artist and curator. The event will launch on the evening of December 15th in North Park, with an opening night celebration, and will continue all day Saturday, December 16th. In the spirit of renaissance, the 2017 Hotels/ Motels will return to San Diego, where the inaugural exposition was held. In 2000, we occupied the Motel 6, and then surfaced again at the downtown Travelodge in 2003. Before the urban redevelopment, downtown was a vibrant arts district, comprised of galleries, artist studios, and art centers. It was an exciting time for the arts and Hotels/ Motels was a significant addition! With the launch of Hotels /Motels 2017, we hope to contribute to the revitalization of San Diego’s burgeoning art scene! This event will generate excitement and restore demand for contemporary art and culture in San Diego. Fallen Tree Exhibitions promises to create a stimulating and very intimate exhibition environment for art lovers, artists, and patrons. Participants will engage in thought provoking experiences, form meaningful relationships, and create new opportunities. The checkout time is up to you! Artists, voyeurs, join us, in this unprecedented, unofficial art fair! [more]

Thus, Nerd Nite is a monthly event held in more than 90 cities across the globe during which several folks give 18-21-minute fun-yet-informative presentations across all disciplines – while the audience drinks along. And there are often bands, acrobats, trivia, and other shenanigans as well.

The Wood Fired Dinner Series @ Biga San Diego - 04/12/2018 Dual wood ovens. Imported from Italy. It's one of the things that we take pride in at BIGA. And now, we will share our pride and joy with our friends and colleagues. Our Wood Fired Dinner Series will be a showcase of chefs, fire and ingredients. Over the next several months, our BIGA kitchen will team up with some of the most beloved chefs in the county to create an unparalleled and memorable dining experience for our guests. These prix fixe, four-course tasting menus are meant to highlight a chef, using our wood ovens and some of the best products we can procure locally, as well as wines from around the world. The next dinner (December 14, 2017) will feature guest chef Drew Bent of Lola 55, which will soon be opening in East Village. After plying his trade at such beloved spots as Tender Greens, Puesto, Blind Lady and Carnitas Snack Shack, Drew will be working alongside our team to make delicious wood fired cuisine. He will be demonstrating his impeccable technique, some of which was learned from his time at Noma - Tulum in the summer of 2017. We are excited to see what he produces using our unique wood fire! And the menu is now here! Check it out: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3095914 Our third Wood Fired Dinner (February 8, 2018) features Mike Arquines of The Lab Dining, a high-end private dinner service. You may know Mike from one of his other endeavors -- from his roasting at local and beloved Mostra Coffee, his 100+ beer collaborations throughout the world, or from his dozens of pop up and collaboration dinners that he has contributed to in San Diego. His food is adventurous, ambitious, beautiful and delicious. Throw in some wood fire and WOW! Nick Brune, a native of Louisiana, has been using his specialized cooking technique since he was young. This well-respected chef, for our fourth installment (April 12, 2018) of the Dinner Series, has cooked with some of the biggest names in the restaurant world, and has also cooked for some of the most well-known people in the world. As the founder of renown catering company Eco Caters, Nick has also been at the forefront of the trend of farm to table (although he would never call it that) and is one of the best beer pairing chefs in the city. We have seen what he does with fire. Wait 'til you taste what he does with it. Our fifth Dinner on June 14, 2018 will feature Accursio Lota of Solare Ristorante in Liberty Station. Accursio, a native of Sicily, has received numerous accolades including various Chef of the Year awards and, most recently, he won the World Pasta Championship! His elevating of traditional Italian cuisine, particularly using native and local ingredients, has created a loyal and fervent following. One of the best seats in town is sitting at the Chef's Window at Solare. From there, you can see (and smell) first-hand how he and his team cook the food that will be presented to you. Once he gets into BIGA, we are VERY excited to see how his immaculate and creative cuisine is executed using our wood ovens. Finally, to close out the series on August 9, 2018, our sixth and final Dinner will feature Chef Davin Waite of Wrench and the Rodent in Oceanside. This amazingly inventive and brave chef believes in using the entire product as the only way to fully respect that ingredient. From Banana Peel Tacos to BBQ Fish Ribs, Davin is only limited by the forces of nature and physics. A supremely talented chef, Davin will bring his skills to BIGA to highlight some of the most amazing ingredients from his neighbors in Oceanside, Cyclops Farms, for a mid-summer night to remember.
