    Dine if you dare: attend a secret supper and exhibition with celebrated chef Leif Hendendal. This unique event will be unlike any dinner you've previously experienced, and beyond delicious. Leif Hedendal is a cook and artist who focuses on social practices, pedagogy, health, agriculture, and food politics. Trained at noma, Citron, Greens, and numerous Barcelona restaurants, Hedendal's cuisine emphasizes micro-seasonality, humanely raised meat, under–utilized vegetables, urban agriculture, and wild forage.

    Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Christo supplies non-profit arts organizations with photo-lithos of his and Jeanne-Claude’s "Over The River: Project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado,” to be used by those organizations as fund-raising tools. The artists receive no funds whatsoever, as the entire amount is intended to benefit The Lab. Christo hand signs each of these large scale images, and his webMaster – and our neighbor – Jok Church makes sure they benefit the arts and education communities. Visit http://christojeanneclaude.net. This package also include naming rights to a small space in the Lab, and the full Lab schwag package–email, playlist, poster, bag, and membership!
