Listen to live beats, dine on yummy bites, drink free libations, and — most importantly — watch several Bay Area glass artists (including world-renowned glass blower Ferdinand Theriot) give edge-of-your-seat demonstrations with flameworking, a technique that makes glass bend and move at the artist's will. Bonus: The event will also feature eight super-cool works of art made from Optical Underground's collection of glass frames, which will be auctioned off later in April.
When: Thursday, February 9, 5 to 8 p.m.
Where: Optical Underground, 280 Sutter Street (at the corner of Grant Avenue); 415-982-5106.
