Miss Heather,

I attach a press release for our next exhibition.  It promises to be a stunner; both of these artists work at a prestigious gallery in Manhattan, and they should draw an interesting crowd.  We’d love to get the word out to your readers.

Here’s a little information about the featured artists, Richie Lasansky and Allison Read Smith from the aforementioned press release:

Born in La Paz, Bolivia, while his parents were in the peace corps, Lasansky’s interest in drawing and art stems from an age when he could first hold a pencil. His parents being music and dance performers, he traveled around with them, constantly drawing everything he saw. For a while he thought his interest in animals would lead him to a career in science. After graduation from Hebron Academy, he studied biology at Brandeis University in Waltham, Mass., but upon graduation, moved to Iowa to study printmaking formally with his grandfather – Mauricio Lasansky. He spent eight years in this apprenticeship…

Allison Read Smith was born and raised in Memphis, TN and has lived and worked in NYC for the past twelve years.
Merging Southern storytelling with the more brisk pace of New York she has generated a body of work that uses pedestrian materials, such as newspaper, magazines, postal stamps, cardboard, and rubber. For this exhibition she relies mainly on roofing rubber to generate a cartoonish, malleable dark humor….

You can get (much) more information by pointing and clicking your way over the Pandemic’s web site. Check it out!

Spotted On On The Southside: Esteban Duran

When I saw the above juxtaposition I could not help but giggle. If there’s one thing politicians have to do a lot of it is smiling. So I shot a photo and kept on walking. Not even ten minutes later, lo and behold, I bumped into the man himself on South 3rd and Keap Street!

As you can see Mr. Duran has a genuine affection for sporting a smile! After talking shop and establishing:

  1. that my husband knows who to vote for— or more accurately: who NOT to vote for— under threat of being locked out of Chez Shitty* and
  2. that he was familiar with New York Shitty!

I wished him luck and continued on my peregrinations around his ‘nabe. Nice meeting you Mr. Duran— and good luck! As for the rest of you, dear readers: the polls close at 9:00 p.m.— SO GET OUT THERE AND VOTE!

Southside Restaurant Watch: Carino Restaurant & Cantina

Today when I walked by 82 South 4 Street, the site of Latitude Zero I noticed, well, that it wasn’t there. This place will soon be Carino. Curious to know what gives I asked a gentleman on site. He happened to be one of the owners— and a really nice guy.

Here’s the scoop: Carino is the brainchild of the former managers of the now defunct Bonita. They have brought together much of the staff from the latter establishment and hope to open on April 27. The possible hang-up: they need to install the dishwasher and build customized shelving around it so as to be “up to code”. That’s it. All the necessary permits are in place.

But let’s get down to brass tacks. I asked this gentlemen:

Will you be serving cheese enchiladas?

His answer: YES!

And so my quest for a decent cheese enchilada marches bravely (and optimistically) forward…

Carino
Scheduled/Hoped For Opening Date: April 27, 2010
