    TV Dinner 6: Twin Peaks

    Join Jon Stevenson and Paulette Trainor at Verge Center for the Arts on Saturday, May 19th for Sacramento’s premier annual art event—TV Dinner 6! In celebration of our 6th year, we present our evening’s theme, Twin Peaks!

    This year’s TV Dinner theme has us all buzzing! Get ready for cherry pie and “a damn fine cup of coffee” because “nothing beats the taste sensation when maple syrup collides with ham.” Your evening will begin at the Roadhouse with live music, specialty cocktails, and passed appetizers. From the Roadhouse, transition to the Black Lodge for a multi-course dinner inspired by Twin Peaks.

    Verge events, known for their unique themes and experiences, have been instrumental in inspiring a cultural movement in Sacramento that has brought both local and national attention to artists and creatives of the region. Creative soil, fertile for growth, makes way for the collaborative spirit to flourish with visual art, film, music and food, bringing increased revenue to our city. In other words, our evolving community benefits on many levels when you choose to sponsor Verge events, including our Kids Summer Studio Camp and exhibition programming.

    TV Dinner brings together fine dining and interactive art for a unique experience. A collaboration between Chef Michael Thiemann and Verge, TV Dinner 6 combines video installation with a multi-course tasting menu inspired by the imagery being projected in the dining room. Thiemann is best known locally as the recent head chef of the Sellands Restaurant Group before leaving for Mill Valley to work as the Culinary Director to Food Network celebrity chef, Tyler Florence. Thiemann left that position in 2013 in order to return to Sacramento and open two restaurants on the K Street Mall, Mother and Empress Tavern.
