'Food Coma' Spotlights Bresca; Benefit Dinner At Tao

ARTS DISTRICT — The latest iteration of Food Coma TV will be premiered at Space Gallery on Sunday at 7 p.m. "The Food Coma Show" stars Joe Ricchio and guests, including rapper Spose and Olympic skier Julie Parisien, dining and drinking at Bresca. Ricchio told The Portland Press Herald that the show is loosely based on Jon Favreau's "Dinner For Five" but that for Food Coma, the discussion will be 70 percent about the food, 30 percent other topics. Admission is $5 and "there are art installations in case people get tired of watching me get drunk," Ricchio said. [PPH]
