Have you seen the posters along Market Street in San Francisco about a woman named Flor? Want to learn more about this project and the artist behind the posters? Well, you should attend an co-sponsored by the San Francisco Arts Commission and Kearny Street Workshop this Thursday evening. The details are below.
The San Francisco Arts Commission is co-sponsoring with Kearny Street Workshop a panel discussion about the Filipino immigration experience in the 1970’s as part of the Art on Market Street Program. The panel will take place on Thursday, November 13th, from 7 to 8:30 PM at Kearny Street Workshop, located at 180 Capp Street at 17th Street, in Space 180.
The panel is presented as part of Flor de Manila y San Francisco, an Art on Market Street Program project that includes a poster exhibition by artist Jenifer Wofford. The panel will discuss the connections between the Philippines and the San Francisco Bay Area, particularly in relationship to the immigration of Filipina nurses. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Bay Area Bites, KQED public radio’s food blog, highlight’s the traditional Pilipino breakfast this weekend. Finally! Our traditional pan de sal, longanisa, tocino, ensaimada, mangoes, sticky rice, dried fish, salty egg, corned beef, and fried garlic-rice gets the attention it deserves from a more mainstream part of the culinary community!
If you like food (and you’d be soul-less if you didn’t), and if you especially like Pilipino breakfast foods, or if you simply want to learn more about it, Bay Area Bites blogger Thy Tran’s post includes a sweet reflection on a few of the delicacies of the Pilipino breakfast. She calls Pilipino’s “hearty eaters,” and also calls the range of Pinoy breakfast “impressive.” She CLEARLY knows what’s up.
She also includes a short list of some Bay Area restaurants that serve Pinoy breakfast, and a link to another blog that has a scrumptious roundup of various real-life Pinoy breakfasts complete with pretty pictures! With that said, don’t visit these blogs if you’re hungry! And if you do, you can’t say I didn’t warn you! Happy Eating!
