When art and food come together, it's typically either in the form of an uninspiring still life, a horrible museum cafe, or Marlon Brando. Promising a truly inspiring night of both cultural & literal nourishment: Burgermat.
Burgermat takes the recently launched BurgerMonday beef-fests into the aesthetic realm by bussing in a team of two dozen daubers to design original, burger-themed paper placemats that patrons are encouraged to "complete" with grease, ketchup, etc., before taking them home, a stratagem perhaps all too familiar to Lenny Henry. Rustled up by the Admiral Codrington's Fred Smith, the three courses include a Sloanie Platter ("British-style tapas"), a chopped-steak "two-hander" with bacon & cheese integrated into the patty, and a slice of NY cheesecake, all drowned in bottomless wine & beer -- which in previous events has meant Meantime, Whitstable Bay, and a coffee porter, who ironically refused to lift the bags under people's eyes. Meanwhile, the artists behind the signed burgermats range from Brighton's Nishant Choksi (offering a cheery, monocled, cigar-puffing burger bouncing along in a red '50s coupe), to South Africa's Richard Hart (ultra-minimalist, circular profile labeled "Land Of The Rising Bun"), to Philadelphia's Andy Rementer, whose Keith Haring-esque characters encircle the word "Eat", though given the deliciousness now encircling you, that command's even more unnecessary than "Breathe".
If your mat goes completely transparent from grease (or you just want another one anyway), all the art will be made available online as limited-ed A2 Giclée prints the day after the show -- when you should still be recovering from your artistically justified overindulgence, and living a very still life indeed.
