This years Beads, Braids and Brows, taking place from 5 to 10 p.m. tonight at Comfort Cafe, 3945 Tennyson Street, includes a Mexican feast of roasted pork and side dishes available for a reasonable price (Comfort Cafe is a pay-what-you-can eatery). There will also be a shrine exhibit, an art-vending machine and Fridas Fotobooth, where Barrett says all faux Fridas and dapper Diegos can get a souvenir snapshot.
Admission is free, but come ready to buy, and dont forget to put on your best fiesta-wear and pencil in that unibrow. Last year, we even had an infant Frida, complete with stuffed monkeys, Barrett recalls. For details, visit www.studiobead.com.
