Venture upstairs for a night at Lola above Butchertown Grocery, to join IDEAS xLab for a dynamic night where a fusion of artistic genres, talents, culinary traditions, and beverages await!
Entertainment will feature a mix of performances and poetry by Cheyenne Mize, Hannah Drake, Tonya Abeln, Robin G., Theo Edmonds, Josh Miller, Joey Thieman and the Shades of Ebony, along with a few surprise guests!
Guests will enjoy a sampling of Caribbean-influenced cuisine crafted by Chef/Owner Bobby Benjamin, and tickets include drink tickets for 2 of our signature alcohol infused or zero-proof beverages by Nic Christiansen.
"A great community, just like a great dish, consists of a healthy variety of ingredients, flavors, and cultural influences," said Chef Benjamin. "My team and I are extremely excited about the opportunity to work with IDEAS xLab to further their vision of creating a healthier community through innovative cultural engagements."
Proceeds from eclectic // eccentric ticket sales will benefit IDEAS xLab, a Louisville-based nonprofit focused on leveraging the power of community creativity and culture to transform people’s lives.
“I first experienced the power of IDEAS xLab in 2015 when it brought artists and residents of Natchez, MS together to lift up and celebrate personal health narratives while creating artwork with individuals from across the community,” said IDEAS xLab Board Chair Erik Eaker, Director of Experience Strategy and Transformation at Humana. “I’m also proud of their work here in Louisville, for example at Meyzeek Middle School and their creation of 'One Poem at a Time' and the 'Justice League.' IDEAS xLab's expertise in leveraging the power of arts, culture, and the creative industries can transform community and organizational efforts to improve health and wellbeing.”
Doors open at 6pm, welcome at 6:30pm with performances to follow until 9pm.
