Participating artists include Oscar Tillman and Park McArthur, Danielle Payne, Ashley Wick, Benjamin Farahmand and Daniel Wallace.

Small Stakes
Saturday, March 3, 7-9 p.m.

This mini-version of the successful microgranting dinner series Philly Stake  exists to fund everyday costs of being a creative, like studio time, printing costs and supplies, in an intimate setting. Good food (courtesy of Little Baby's Ice Cream), good company and three presentations from some pretty inspiring creatives. All presenters take home some dough, and the winner, determined by voting, gets the most. Deadline for presenter applications is Tuesday (Feb. 28) at noon.

The Philadelphia International Flower Show takes us to paradise this year, and so does the always tasty City Food Tours, which is hosting this 2.5-hour event that includes a five-chocolate tasting from the islands, three exotic teas from Hawaii, fish tacos, and a Mai Tai cocktail. The event is hosted by City Food Tours owner Eric Matzke, who spent 12 years as a child on the island of Oahu, studied horticulture in college and has previously helped develop a Flower Show exhibit (with the Philadelphia Zoo).
