Merola Opera Cocktail Reception

Merola Opera Program held a cocktail reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jean-Louis  Le Roux to kick off the spring gala, Une Soiree Francaise on March 15. More than 60 Merola patrons gathered for French wines, food and remarks given by the new French Consul General to San Francisco, Pierre-Francois Mourier, and Gala Chair Blanche Germain Streeter.  SF Opera Center director and mezzo-soprano Sheri Greenwald performed songs by Faure, Debussy and other French composers.

The Before and After

I like to track progress. That’s why I’m a fan of before-and-after shots. Here’s one for Waterbar:

First you see the sketch of the light fixture in the rendering from my visit in October (read more about it here)…



… and voila! Here it is—all blown glass and wire.



Stay tuned. Waterbar’s opening date is slated for January 29.

Reusing Old Buttons



I’ve written about how my inner crafter comes out from watching Project Runway. I’ve reconstructed all of my ill-fitting and ordinary tees and have moved on to adorning tank tops with use of old materials: buttons. I’ve long had a love of vintage buttons and like to replace boring ones on jackets and cardigans with glass and wood ones.

Semi-Homemade Chicken

I haven’t yet been able to sit through an entire episode of Sandra Lee’s Semi-Homemade show on the Food Network. There’s something about it that gets under my skin. I’m sure she’s a great person with homemaking skills I’ll never have, but where’s her edge? Why does every show involve frilly cupcake frosting? Does she not have one gram of badass Bourdain in her at all? Well, I digress.
