Passion for Mashin'

Matt Jones and Gasworks Gallery have already created big buzz about their monthly Passion for Mashin' parties, where cliques mix and huge quantities of potatoes and storable food are collected for Northwest Harvest. See what the fuss is all about at this annual rockin' holiday party, where you can celebrate the—yep—90,000 pounds of potatoes that will later be donated. The shindig is also to raise awareness for Jones' grassroots community project 

Wine, music, and art will be on hand to make you feel even more warm and fuzzy. "You'd think if you offer free food and unlimited wine, you'd tap into some weirdos," says Jones, "but so far that hasn't happened. The parties draw an eclectic group, a really nice crowd . . . lots of art appreciators and artists." Your entrée for the mashin' bash? Just a bag of potatoes or a nonperishable food donation. Gasworks Gallery, 3815 Fourth Ave. N.E. Free. 8–11 p.m.
