All the city's a stage

You can count on the creator of chocolate–olive oil pizza and oatmeal ice milk to dish out unexpected entertainment as well. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the second and third weeks of the month, at Elizabeth Falkner’s anything-goes Orson, local phenom RAWdance will perform a spontaneous 10-minute routine. This isn’t RAWdance’s first venture off the stage; a couple of years ago, the group performed in an empty storefront in the Westfield San Francisco Centre; another time, they danced in a sports equipment consignment store. But now they’ll have to compete with chatting diners, attention-grabbing cuisine, and restaurant staff. “Our challenge will be to make the movement real and expansive without taking out a waiter,” says RAWdance cofounder Ryan T. Smith.
