Alpine Beer Company opened up a pub… in Alpine

August 31, 2010

Alpine Beer Company Pub

A few weeks ago, my favorite brewery opened a pub just a few doors down from their preexisting tasting room. Named after its town of residency, Alpine Beer Company manages to attract a healthy mix of local folk and beer advocates on their hop-seeking pilgrimages. Staying pretty conservative, I ordered a plate of their nachos topped with steak, chicken and bbq sauce. Pretty boring, I know… but I was there for the beer anyway and most of the real estate in my stomach was reserved for Exponential Hoppiness.

On my desk: KAWS exhibition pamphlet

August 30, 2010

Kaws pamphlet from the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum

On a recent trip to New York, my friend Dom (Sea & Bee) took a minor detour and swung by the KAWS exhibition at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Being the awesome friend that he is, he brought me back a museum pamphlet from the show. This is the first solo museum exhibition by the New Jersey-born artist and will continue on until January 2nd, 2011.

Below, is a photo that I took at the KAWS x Undefeated Billboard Project opening in 2004. I remember him staying well beyond the reception’s hours to sign and sketch for all of the attendees. Kind of a bummer that I didn’t have him sign anything while I was there.

Clarke Forrest at When We Sleep presented by Yeller Studio at Subtext San Diego

Last Saturday, my friends from Yeller Studio held the reigns at Subtext Gallery in a group show featuring works by Christina Liu, Clarke Forrest, Michael Tussey, Tyler Cristobal and Richard Parubrub. Themed, When We Sleep, the show was a visual culmination of work inspired by the unconscious glimpses of the artists. It was all a dream!

722 Figueroa’s Sounds of Summer Concert Series Featuring Best Coast

August 29, 2010

Bob Bruno of Best Coast

I made the way up to Los Angeles on Friday night to check out Best Coast at the Sounds of Summer Concert Series presented by 722 Figueroa. Reaching capacity far before starting their set, there were plenty of hopeful show-goers left at the door. Get there early folks! Without my camera in hand, these were the only shots that I was able to take with my iPhone.

Thankyou to 722 Figueroa Showroom for the invite. I had a great time. Further bills of the Sounds of Summer Concert Series will include Neon Indian and The Drums. Save the dates.

I picked up this Stanley food jar the other day to provide as a porter for my home-cooked lunches. The 17-ounce, stainless steel construction of the canister is double-walled, keeping food insulated for 12 hours. No more cold lunches!
