Announcing our NEW Curation Series
Highly stylized Brunch and Dinner events with select musicians

Pickathon and Jason French, owner of Ned Ludd, are collaborating to put together six once-in-a-lifetime food, music, and drink experiences as the Curation Series.

Anyone attending Pickathon can buy a ticket to participate, but each event is limited to 55 lucky guests. Reserve your tickets here!

Each Curation event begins with appetizers and drinks from a featured mixologist and a music performance by the participating artist, followed by a communal meal. Once everyone is fully satisfied, we’ll conclude with another mini-set from the music artist. Each Curation event will last about one and a half hours from start to finish.

The idea behind each of the six different adventures goes as follows…
• Jason French recruits six world-class chefs from around the Pacific Northwest.
• Pickathon curates a musical artist to pair with each chef.
• Jason French curates local food provider(s) based on the chef and musical artist.
• Each Chef conceptualizes the menu based on discussions with the band and food provider.
• Pickathon, Jason, and the chef select a mixologist based on the menu and the music.
• Pickathon designs a beautiful setting based on all of the above.
