Did Someone Say Vegas? Oh, And How About An Art Show?
Jon and I will spend the lovely holiday weekend in the city of sun and sin. Since we've both been working like dogs for the past several months, stopping only to attend weddings and such (well, ok, there was Mexico), we will be taking full advantage of the delights of LV.
Except when we are attending another wedding.
I shit you not.
Since my cousin actually *lives* there, he's getting married there. So in between the dining and the rub downs and the pool time and the shows and the craps shooting, we will be placating my totally batshit mother and praying for no family drama. (And here I am not able to drink. Or take any valium.)
In the meantime, let me tell you about a little event that I heard about from Julia, a server at my favorite. She's also the events coordinator at The Red Poppy Art House, a community arts space. They are doing a big showing for the artists next week, and the reason you (and I) should go is there will be food (the chefs are from Chez Panisse, Delfina and Radio Africa Kitchen) and Delfina is donating a fuckload of wine. The important deets are as follows:

So this weekend get the hell out of here, or stay and barbecue or whatever but NEXT weekend when the holiday weekend fun is all gone, hit up the Red Poppy. Got it?
In the meantime, I need to take care of some important business before I jet off. That's right folks, Bi-Rite Creamery is calling my name.
