Heads up: Performance artist and actor Brian Feldman plans to mix Jewish tradition with a fiercely loved stop for food in Tampa's Wellswood neighborhood next week — right after his latest GASP! performance.
Following his Four Hour Gasp production at the annual CL-hosted performing arts event, which runs from 6 to 10 p.m. March 16 at the Tampa Museum of Art, Feldman joins both Wawa and Shabbat enthusiasts around the outdoor tables of one of the uber-popular chain's convenience stores — yes, seriously — for the inaugural Wawa Shabbawa.
Guests of this late-night celebration are asked to RSVP online and bring their own yarmulkes, as Shabbat blessings will be recited. They can also look forward to LED candles, carbonated grape juice and soft pretzels (stuffed with cheese?) in lieu of matches, wine and challah.
Unfortunately, Wawa Shabbawa isn't affiliated with or presented, sponsored or supported by Wawa — but, well, perhaps it should be.
