Despite the phonetic relationship between ‘Hot Carl’ and ‘Art Crawl’, there is no clear connection between the 2. Rather, Hot Carl is described as “ the act of putting seran-wrap on ones face and proceeding to take a hot steamy shit on the seran-wrap, thus letting them feel the warmth of the poo on their face .” In contrast, the Art Crawl is a a set of open studio art openings situated at a cluster of galleries and warehouses in the east part of Downtown. As stated on their website, ” Since 1992, the tradition of the artists “open studios” takes place on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Visitors have the opportunity to ‘pARTicipate’ in the live/work/show spaces of these neighborhood ‘urban pioneers’ .” The laymen can easily see the clear delineation between a shitting on someone’s face and a wonderful Saturday full of great art, wine , cheese, and friends. If you can’t tell the difference I suggest you peep their website or, even better, make it out this Saturday. Tip: start off early at Last Concert Cafe, which is dead center in all the fun, and stuff your face full of enchiladas and margaritas.
