Abe Lincoln Jr (the guy who does those cute little streetart birds all around downtown) has an opening tonight at the Orchard Street Gallery-- 7 to 10pm @ 139 Orchard Street. Kidrobot is sponsoring, and the first 50 people through the door get a free toy. Everyone else gets tacos. Yes-- we did say tacos:

The Grand Opening of TAQUERIA PENDEJO!

I will be transforming the gallery into the Lower East Side's newest "authentic fast food Taqueria".

- There will be "Super Pendejo Meals" available for purchase, all art will be come with a commemorative Taqueria Pendejo meal box as well as a taco and beverage.

- Large scale digital prints of Char (the pooping bird)

- Affordable art for the peoples: 4 different tee shirt designs as well
as small pieces so everyone can take something home.

- The first 50 people at the opening will get a free toy courtesy of
Kidrobot NYC.

- And best of all... disgruntled fast food employees in uniforms!

If street art isn't your scene, consider checking out the Hiroshi Sugimoto talk at the Japan Society tonight at 6:30. Sugimoto is one of the leading photographers working today, and the History of History show up at the JS is supposed to be a great overview of his work. Has anyone been up there to check it out yet?
