The Pancakes & Booze Art Show

Tonight l 7 pm-2am

You had me at pancakes, you had me at booze, you had me at art show.  I plan on being there to literally soak it all in. Here is what the Pancakes & Booze Art Show is all about.

WHAT: Pancakes & Booze Art Show: Over 100 emerging artists showcasing their hottest work in a Warhol-style, anything-goes, massive warehouse environment–live music, body painting, multimedia displays, and FREE pancakes! The show originated in 2009 in Los Angeles and since has popped up more than 200 times in 30 cities around the world. Each show draws as many as 1000 guests throughout the night. – Pancakes & Booze Art Show  THIS WEEKEND: PANCAKES & BOOZE ART SHOW & THE WASHINGTON AUTO SHOW

THE NEW “MOST EXPENSIVE HOME IN AMERICA” IS SO 2017 IT HURTS

Weird how everything goes in cycles.  In so many ways, it’s the year 2000 again: the mood is apocalyptic, the 90s influence is quickly waning, we have a divisive, comical Republican president, and the aesthetic of minimalism/austerity is giving way to one of conspicuous excess.  My first thought after Trump won (okay, not my first thought) was, “Hummers are definitely coming back.”  And a scant two months later, the crown of “Most Expensive House In the US” passes onto this, ahem, colorful $250 million home.

January can be a sad time. Daylight is still on the short side, and the temperature hovers around 42 degrees seemingly forever. The trees are bare, the sky is gray, the holidays are over and you’re left with nothing but torn bits of wrapping paper long since cast aside, pine needles that stubbornly evade every vacuuming, and bills, bills, bills. NO MONEY? NO PROBLEM!

BEHOLD: THE WORST APARTMENT ON EARTH

img_0374-1024x768I’ve lived in some terrible places before: there was the four foot wide “bedroom” that was actually a display closet for collectible plates, with one entire wall of built-in cubbies, and not enough room to open the door unless I tipped my twin mattress up on its side.  Then there was the unfinished basement with crumbling walls, one extension cord for all my electricity needs, and so many silverfish that I had to sleep under mosquito netting.  But this place – this place is clearly worse than any of those holes-in-the-wall.   I genuinely believe that this place is the worst apartment on earth.
