...is my middle name. I'm working on some pieces that I am creating for a show at Erawan Seafood & Steak in Bayside, Queens. They usually have a featured artist at their wine dinners and I will be the one on June 27th. The restaurant is a 2 story building with a bar in front, so there is a lot of space to decorate. Hence, my new middle name- BUSY, but very excited because other than my open studios, I've never had a solo show before. Excitement is in the air!
I have not been a star blogger recently and even worse at reading other blogs, so I was honored to catch up in person with two ladies from Minnesota who I met via swaps years ago!! We all went out to dinner in Fall of 2008, and a year and a half later I meet up with them again and it's even funner!! (Yes, I know that's not a word, but it suits the situation). How time flies. Jenn from The Write Ingredients and Jen from Painted Fish Studio were in town for a little NYC energy and food. Jenn's goal was to have at least five meals a day, and I was impressed with the food she found. I may be a good clothing/accessory shopper, but she is the food shopper. It was great to be a tag-along as opposed to leading the group. Jen was busy shooting pictures with her polaroid camera at it was great to see the results.
They did the research and showed me some new haunts that I've never heard of. I met up with them in Brooklyn where one of the highlights was Cog and Pearl, a treasure chest I had never visited. I found night lights by Happy Owl Glassworks which are so cool that I get excited for bedtime;) (well my daughter does). We then jumped on the train and went to the Hester Street Fair, another gem I had never heard of. Talk about goodies for the eyes- so many colorful things to look at and many young entrepreneurs. Great vibe, but the best find was the food. I had the most delicious lobster roll I've ever had outside of Maine from Luke's Lobster and a heavenly lemonade (with other flavors) by I forget:( Sorry, guess you'll just have to visit to find out for yourself.
We did a lot more walking and looking and a pit stop for this group involves wine- these are my kind of ladies.
