September is officially festival month in Portland, and the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art's 13th-annual Time-Based Art Festival (or, affectionally, TBA:13) kicks off tomorrow night, launching 12 days of performances, installations, and other arty shenanigans in venues around town. But for the food-minded: The daily late-night afterparty at THE WORKS (located at NW's at Con-Way site) will provide "#TBA4thmeal" every evening with a pop-up bar and kitchen featuring some of Portland's chefs playing around with the theme of a "carnival without rides."
Gruner chef de cuisine Jake Sheffield co-curates the chef lineup, which includes Cathy Whims, Nong Poonsukwattana, Gabe Rosen, Henry Kibit, and Chris Israel (among others) cooking state-fair concessions like hot dogs — if hot dogs were first "styled" by an artist. (This is of course happening: Chase Biado will serve as the official TBA:13 food stylist.) Bar catering company Merit Badge will shake up cocktails made with product from the nearby Bull Run Distilling Co.
