Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, November 12 to Friday, December 3

What better way to end off the night but with cookies?  Oh, First Fridays is a cash bar, by the way.  Straight out of a David Cross routine, you've got to buy tickets and then exchange those for your drinks.  Drink tickets are non-refundable, so figure out what you're going to drink before you pay for your tickets.  We bought $20 in tickets.  I had a 10-ticket Bombay Sapphire martini, Steph had a 5-ticket beer, and then with our remaining 5 tickets we split one last beer.  I kind of wanted to have a few more drinks and then go watch Black Swan, but some friends called to invite us to the Brauhaus in Lincoln Square for sausage and boots of beer.  Which was great.  Black Swan was great too, we saw it a few days later.

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, April 30

The free lunches consisted of two sandwiches (turkey, chicken breast, or roast beef), which came on a really thick, tough bun (maybe more shelf stable?).  They also came with some pasta with a pesto-like substance on 'em, fruit, and chips.  I'm not going to lie, it wasn't the best lunch I've ever had, but it was free, and that's what counts.  And, despite their rather uninspired contents, these press lunches disappeared almost the instant they were set out; it was hit or miss whether we got one in time each day.  So, I guess that's the lesson:  there IS such a thing as a free lunch, but only if you're press, and they're not spectacular, and even so, the early bird totally gets the, um, free lunch.  Anyway, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, so thanks for the lunch, Artropolis!  I'm going to end this here before I drag out any more hackneyed expressions.
by Jeriah HildwinePhotos by Stephanie Burke (except the one of her, which Jeriah took, duh) Due to recent travels, the snack report is running a few weeks behind.  Friday, April 30th was the public opening of Artropolis, and Steph and I were performing in Tara Strickstein’s Pataphor at the NEXT Art Fair.  After an exhilarating...
