Where the F*#K are YOU going? (6/24/11 & 6/25/11)

Jeriah Hildwine, posting for Stephanie Burke It’s 12:34 on Friday morning, and Stephanie left her purse at a party, so while she’s going back to pick it up, I’m posting this week’s edition of WTFAYG for her.  If it’s a little rough around the edges, that’s why.  A quick Google image search for “Where are...

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: March 3rd through March 13th

Co-Prosperity Sphere featured bottles of Miller High Life, and curators Linda Dorman and Tom Torluemke brought an assortment of pies, cakes, and brownies.  Stephanie thought the cake was too sweet; she should have known better:  you don't expect subtlety from something that bright pink!  I found the apple pie more to my taste.  After enjoying our beers and desserts, we ended up buying a small Billy Pozzo sculpture, which looks like the top half of a submerged zombie's head, who now lives in a bowl in our living room.  Thanks guys!

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, September 10th, 2010

The West Loop was pretty dry.  Steph noticed at Tony Wight that some guests got Goose Island, others got Pabst.  (She got Pabst.)  When I went in, it was packed, and I didn't see any beer anywhere.  Up the street, at 119 Peoria, the Pernod people were set up, selling Pernod Absinthe Sours and Old Fashioneds for a $5 donation.  Linda Warren did still have her famous punch, though!

Monday Morning Quarterback, September 10th, 2010

Jeriah:  Looking at the surface of these things up close, you get curious about how they were made.  Some kind of wood inlay, it seems.  They were neat-o.  Unforunately it seems we didn't get any images from Linda Warren, our last stop, which had a great show of Chuck Walker's work!

by Jeriah HildwinePhotos by Stephanie Burke Stephanie had made some plans for Friday night, but what she didn’t know was that Ken Saunders was serving dirty martinis!  I can’t say no to a dirty martini, and so we were lured into River North. Dirty Martinis courtesy of Ken Saunders Gallery! I got a very nice... Read more »

Monday Morning Quarterback, July 23

by Jeriah Hildwine and Stephanie Burke S: First stop for the night was Ken Saunders. Lured by the promise of dirty martinis, we showed up right at 5pm. I think that glass art is one of those mediums that are often shrugged off by artists (myself included), relegated to “craft” status and told to stay... Read more »
