A Tactile Dinner (at Long View)

A 15 course-meal for the senses at Long View Gallery

“It manages the rare trick in avant-garde performance of not taking itself too seriously, of embracing the audience rather than intentionally alienating it: think Top Chef hosted by Stephen Colbert.” – ReadySetDC

The 2009 Capfringe hit is back – this time with an Italian Aperitivo and 15 indulgent omnivorous “courses” at Long View Gallery.
