Check out our 7 not-to-miss A+E happenings this week.
1. “Freedom of Art” featuring art by Lawrence Ferlinghetti at YBCA on Tuesday, February 12
Come check out prominent Beat poet and City Lights founder Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s paintings that evoke scenes of freedom and act as visual statements against censorship.
1. Celebrating the Sourpuss
Yuzus, kishus, and mandarinquats—oh my! With winter well underway, so is citrus season. Make reservations for Manresa’s Citrus Modernista Dinner on Tuesday, February 26 for a multi-course meal ($140 pp) featuring the bounty of the restaurant’s garden in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
2. Choc it Up
Be mine: Charles Chocolates Triple
I’m not a romantic, at least in the conventional sense. Valentine’s Day? Whatever.
My apathy is a good thing, though. It serves me well when the romantic forecast is cloudy and gray.
I'm similarly indifferent about the two things that come with February 14: red roses and chocolate. Give me dahlias, tulips or ranunculus; coconut, lemon or caramel. I've learned to steer clear of this conversation in the company of other women, though. Just saying no to chocolate is like an affront to the sisterhood.
Zoe called me early this morning in a panic: “Last night, I had 182 friends on Facebook, this morning only 181.”
Zoe, the sleuthiest friend I’ve got, took only seconds to find out why. An ex-boyfriend had deleted her as a friend. He was still obsessively consumed with her life (and was therefore checking her Facebook page all the time). So, he decided to quit her, cold turkey. A good idea since Zoe’s postings don’t leave much to the imagination. It’s not hard to figure out when she’s got new men in rotation.
