FungiFest 2010: Mushroom Mayhem at Machine Project
If you're looking for something fun(gi) ((Oh god, did I actually make that joke?!)) to do this coming Saturday night, you could do worse than the launch of Machine Project's almost-weeklong FungiFest 2010. Event starts at 8 p.m. with a mushroom collecting tutorial, some mushroom-themed film shorts, mushroom gelato from Scoops, slime mold racing and mushroom cocktails.
If you've never been to a Machine event before, this might be a nice one to start out with. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own mushroom specimens, "whether you find them growing in your yard, behind your toilet or in the woods."
