Guerilla Smiles: The Food Art of Nick Jirasek

by Jeriah Hildwine I first heard about Studio 1020 back in February 2010, when I read Jason Foumberg’s review of Doug Fogelson’s “Salt Room” in New City. Not long thereafter I got an invitation to attend an exhibition of collaborative work by Tony Fitzpatrick, Matthew Hoffman, Meghan Lorenz, KS Rives, and “12 others.” Unfortunately I... Read more »

Chicago Gallery Snack Report: Friday, January 21, 2011

The galvanized bucket o' beer sat in the gallery's small kitchen.  We arrived midway through the reception, the place was packed, but there was still a healthy supply of Miller High Life, as well as some cans of La Croix mineral water or something.  Around closing time some guys came in with a case of Ice House and added it to the tub.  I had one or two High Lifes and one of the Ice Houses the gentlemen brought by, and then it was off to bed.  This was the last opening at Swimming Pool's current space.  Look for one upcoming exhibition in a West Loop space, currently Liz Nielsen's studio, before she and Carolina Wheat pull up stakes for New York.  Best of luck, ladies!

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.

Snack Report Recap: 10/1, 10/9 & 10/10

FITB is a long-time Snack Report favorite; they always serve great snacks.  We had wine, hummus and pita, veggies, and dip.  I believe there may have also been chips and guacomole but it kept getting eaten up!  And there were grapes.  Thanks for all the snacks, guys!
