Machine Project's Fry-B-Que 2 Heats Things Up

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We got into Machine Project last weekend when we geared up to check out their Object-fied music event, and now we're ready to get in even deeper with them.

Deep frying, that is.

This weekend, Machine Project is hosting their second annual Fry-B-Que, which is all about the glorious communal spirit that only immersing edibles in wicked-hot oil can bring about. The deal is you bring stuff to fry (go traditional and do some potatoes, or go all county fair and bring Twinkies and avocadoes) and hang out with some fine-frying friends. Admission is free, with a $5 charge for all-you-can-fry privleges. Don't worry, their "fryolater technicians" will be standing by with flame-retardants and frying tips if needed. LAist urges you to BYOA--A for apron, of course.
