  1. Came to suburban Detroit to plan wedding stuff with my family, and after gorging ourselves at Loui’s Pizza (Detroit Pizza is real, people! Give it a shake), we got home and while eating sis’ delicious pecan bars for dessert, we threw on episode 1 of “Ugly Delicious” which focused on pizza. It’s Chang, a food writer, and the chef at Lucali’s looking at pizza in America and abroad. Very cool show, thoughtful, the pace is not frenetic and jokey like Bourdain or the new Rosenthal show (which is awesome, too). Chang comes of very “real” and instead of a “too cool for school” vibe, he’s more like me
  2. The National Portrait Gallery has commissioned Kehinde Wiley and Amy Sherald to paint the museum's official portraits of former President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama. The two portraits will be unveiled at the museum in early 2018 and will be added to the Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection. Kehinde Wiley received wide acclaim for his touring exhibit "Kehinde Wiley: A New Republic," which appeared at the Brooklyn Museum, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Seattle Art Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Toledo Museum of Art, and Oklahoma City
  3. I know the book has been around for 6 years or so, but I recently read Kitchen Confidential while I was on my trip to Hawaii and it was a great read. Out of curiosity, does anyone know who he is referring to as Bigfoot? Also, has anyone here actually tasted Anthony Bourdain's food? Does he suck per his own self assessment or is he just being self depricating?

  5. Disrupting Craft: Renwick Invitational 2018 November 9, 2018 - May 5, 2019 "Disrupting Craft presents the work of Tanya Aguiñiga, Sharif Bey, Dustin Farnsworth, and Stephanie Syjuco, four artists who challenge the conventional definitions of craft by imbuing it with a renewed sense of emotional purpose, inclusiveness, and activism. The four artists work in an expansive variety of media including ceramics, wood, and fibers. They all share a dedication to social justice and to interrogating cultural identities and established historical narratives. By exploiting the conceptual too
  6. Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Pulse On view November 1, 2018 through April 28, 2019. "In the Hirshhorn’s largest interactive technology exhibition to date, three major installations from Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse series will come together for the artist’s DC debut. A Mexican Canadian artist known for straddling the line between art, technology, and design, Lozano-Hemmer will fill the Museum’s entire Second Level with immersive environments that use heart-rate sensors to create kinetic and audiovisual experiences from visitors’ own biometric data. Over the course of six months, Pulse will
  7. opps, somehow missed this one, but still two months left to get up to NYC. Andy Warhol: From A to B and Back Again Few American artists are as ever-present and instantly recognizable as Andy Warhol (1928–1987). Through his carefully cultivated persona and willingness to experiment with non-traditional art-making techniques, Warhol understood the growing power of images in contemporary life and helped to expand the role of the artist in society. This exhibition—the first Warhol retrospective organized by a U.S. institution since 1989—reconsiders the work of one of the most inventive,
  8. This is a continuation of the List of Restaurant Openings - 2017 thread. Please write me if you know of any others!
  9. It's a dramedy. Micheal Douglas plays an acting coach, Alan Arkin, his agent, shades of Larry David and Jeff Garlin. I almost gave up on it after the first episode, glad I didn't. It's now been nominated for a Golden Globe.
  10. "I Am a Killer" is an interesting documentary series on Netflix, with each episode trying to get inside the minds of the death-row inmates. I've seen several of these, and my favorite, i.e., the most interesting to me, has been Episode 1, "Means to an End," featuring Florida death-row inmate James Robertson. Aside from looking every bit the part of a death-row inmate, Robertson's story is fascinating - he wants to die (and in case you're wondering why he doesn't commit suicide, that's easier said than done in prison). Despite his misdeeds, I genuinely feel sorry for this man. There's
  11. Ice and other stuff at Gaylord National Harbor. I made brunch plans for this weekend at National Harbor but have not pulled the trigger on tickets for Ice. Too damn expensive. I went years ago and thought it was fun for maybe 30 minutes at the most. Lightup Fest at One Loudoun. I drove past it on the way to Charles Town. Not sure whether the food or acrobatic shows are good. Light installation art in Georgetown. I'm taking the kids this weekend. ZooLights. We go every year. The lights don't change and the food around the area just isn't all that good. May pass this ye
  12. I am thinking of spending NYE in the District😍 I know it happens to be crowned amateur night's out by industry folk, but honestly I don't give a hoot, and want to know where the most festive spot will be? Help!!!!
  13. This is extremely sad. "Philly's Restaurant Community Toasts Cocktail Maven Katie Loeb, Now in Hospice" by Danya Henninger on billypenn.com "Restaurant Community Remembering Katie Loeb" by Michael Klein on philly.com
  14. President George H.W. and First Lady Barbara Bush (1925-2018) were married for 73 years. Nov 30, 2018 - "George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, Dies at 94" by Karen Tumulty on washingtonpost.com
  15. For those of you who follow Jim Carrey on Twitter you are well familiar with his brand of political art. He has been on a tear for the last couple of years. Now you can see some of the source drawings at Maccarone in DTLA. IndigNATION: Political Drawings by Jim Carrey, 2016-2018 on exhibit October 23 – December 1, 2018. From the press release:
  16. *** SPOILER ALERT *** If you know nothing about "Three Identical Strangers," close this now, and watch it before reading anything else about it. I just finished watching the documentary "Three Identical Strangers," and I'm going to rave about it in the exact same way I raved about "The Thin Blue Line" to a friend when it came out thirty-years ago (she saw it, loved it, and appreciated the recommendation - ironically, both she and her husband are members here!) This is technically a documentary, but it's really a "drama," as well as a masterpiece in cinema, as it uses subtlety to mani
  17. Last night, I watched "In Cold Blood" (1967), the magnificent, black-and-white, artsy, non-fiction masterpiece for the second time, and was positively riveted by the performance of Robert Blake, just as I was before - maybe even more so: Blake was nearly perfect in this role. But this is a two-man film, and the "other" co-star, Scott Wilson, was just as effective in his own swaggering, Elvis-like, cold-blooded role as sociopath Dick Hickock, and I began to wonder what, exactly, happened to this fine actor. Where has he been for the past fifty years? So I looked him up, and I can hone
  18. Firefly Hill growers were set to harvest Tuesday morning; arrived to find vines picked. "Winery Reports Overnight Theft of Grape Harvest" by Mike Gangloff on roanoke.com
  19. If you want to pay a brief tribute to Burt Reynolds, watch "The Bard," (<--- Hulu link here) where he forever-angered Marlon Brando. (Really, how many people know that Reynolds got decked by William Shakespeare?) I watched "Deliverance" last night for about the fifth time, and loved it just as much as ever.
