Kick off the Cook-Off with cold drinks, vegan eats, and "last chance" shopping.
Here at ExtraVEGANza!, we believe in synergy. So when we found out that our BOSS associates Nick Stockton and Sally England were fixin' to phase out SPACECRAFT for the season (and possibly indefinitely, depending on the exciting new directions the project may take), we put our heads together and planned a swanky little soiree to bid a fond farewell to SPACECRAFT and get our engines running for the Vegan Chili Cook-Off and art auction just down the way. From 5-6 pm on Saturday, January 19, Wake Up Weekenders are cordially invited to quaff a drink, whet the ol' appetite, and enjoy the pleasure of browsing the homegrown handiwork of Grand Rapids artists, designers, and craftspeople in our city's most unique home/studio/storefront multiplex (120 S. Division).

Yachting sails, seatbelts, and spent rubber never looked so HOTT!
Among the items on offer will be Stockton's signature courier bags in all their recycled glory. Word on the street is that one of these numbers will be up for auction later in the evening, so you'll have multiple opportunities to snag a bag. Why not buy one to support your local designer and another to support the just and merciful treatment of animals everywhere? Synergy, ladies and gentlemen, synergy!
