Assignment: Feed Cake to Levi
posted by November 6 at 12:48 PMon
Levi Fuller, a Seattle musician, asked me to bring vegan cake to his CD release party at the Sunset Tavern. I called up the PCC in Fremont and asked the manager if he would be interested in donating vegan cake to a musician. I made sure the manager knew the cake was not going to a good cause, just a guy who plays guitar. He agreed to donate the cake anyway.
I picked up the cake at the PCC in Fremont. I had to get four of them because they were so small. I asked a woman waiting in the check-out line how to find Sunset Tavern and then I nodded my head without actually listening to her directions. She said something about Ballard street or avenue, or some street called Leary….the PCC murals of leaves and vines and produce made it impossible to listen to anything she was saying.
I got lost and ended up near the warehouses lining shilshole avenue. I parked at an Office Depot, got out of the car and asked a boy in a Scion where the Sunset Tavern was. He had no idea, and neither did his dad who was helping him learn how to drive his Scion in the Office Depot parking lot.
Eventually, I found the Sunset Tavern. I went backstage and surprised Levi with the vegan cakes from PCC. Levi was extremely appreciative. “Thank you thank you thank you,” he said to me.
Then I fed the cake to Levi.
Levi later told me via email that all the vegan cake he ate made his stomach feel wierd. Sorry, Levi.
This is the video I made before Levi got all sick up on himself:
