Thursday, February 24, 2005This one is too good to pass up, from Chicagoist:
The Chicago Cacophony Society Reform Lodge #176 is proud to host its 7th annual SPAM Sculpture Contest at the Gallery Cabaret in Bucktown on Saturday.Be there, or be shaped like a can of SPAM.
Bring your own SPAM, or if you're too embarassed to been seen in public buying it, you can buy SPAM there. And don't forget to bring props for use in your sculpture. If you don't want to go alone, drag your friends along and register as a team. Oh, and costumes are strongly encouraged. Sounds like a spectacle, huh? It's sure to be. .. so if you don't want to sculpt, it's cool. You can show up and just watch. After sculpting time is up, the final results will be judged by a panel and the winner will take home a SPAM-tastic medal.
The SPAM party starts at 6pm on Saturday, February 26th. Space is limited, so call 773.551.0525 or email spam@planetshwoop if you'd like to participate or attend. A $2 or food contribution to benefit R.E.S.T. is encouraged.
