Monday is the new Friday! To wit, the only way that we will ever be able to make peace with Mondays is to celebrate them, not loathe them.
Which is why this Monday, June 25, from 6 to 9 p.m., there is going to be a party, and you’re all invited. It's at Sip Lounge on Broadway, near the tunnel. Come, and let’s start forging new diplomatic relations between us and Monday.
There are times when shopping at the farmers market is an urbanite’s bucolic fantasy, and there are times when it’s a blood sport—requiring NASCAR driving skills, sharp elbows and unrelenting greed. I participated in the latter style of shopping last Saturday at the Alemany Farmers Market. All in the name of my mother.
Remembering John Cassavetes and his Bleeding Cinematic Heart
After 12 summer sessions with a Jungian shrink, Poppa H has come to understand I have a “thing” for dead existentialists, specifically risk taking iconoclastic writer/actor/directors (Eric Von Stroheim, Nicholas Ray, Orson Welles, John Cassavetes) who are literally burning mad with the passion to tell stories about the bittersweet human condition. What a breakthrough.
Only couples and single women are allowed to attend. I was invited by a couple who thought I might like to tag along. And so I did.
After the RSVP was accepted, the hosts sent out the address and some basic party instructions. We were told to show up at a Mission Street address around 10 p.m., doors would close at 12 a.m. and party was to go until 4 a.m.
