We've been holding "Rent Parties" to raise some money to help with the monthly expenses of running the new arts center. A local group donates a gig, folks come after the First Friday Gallery Walks, pay-as-you-can, and its a party. We've added having a local bar come and set up, and decided we need to add food. Happened to be talking with the person in Juneau most well-known for her tamales, and suggested she do something like tamales. She said not enough time to do that, but what about this new Mexican healthy food called Bionicos: fresh fruit with a creamy sauce and grains on top, very delicious. Sure!

They came in with an array of beautiful fruits, the special creamy sauce, and a variety of toppings: Thinly sliced strawberried, apples, bananas, grapes, pineapple, all fresh and artfully arranged in a little boat with a cocktail parasol on top. You pick your toppings: the cream, coconut, granola, almonds, m&ms (of course). So good! So refreshing!

They hope to go into business here, and I hope they make it. Bionicos are my new fave.
