When someone as big as Elbo— an internationally renowned glass artist who recently lived and worked in Japan and hosted the country’s first ever pipe show—debuts solo glass work and collaborative works from the top Japanese artists, you have to have a party. And along with the food from Cafe Ena and beer, Legacy also brings in local mural/artist highlight Yuya Negishi who will be adorning the walls with his paintings. It’s a great art event whether you smoke or not and we recommend springing for the VIP. Saturday, May 11th, 7 PM. VIP, 6 PM, $50.Hank Stacks
