Rocky Neck Accommodations Penthouse Suite Renovation Tour 7/20/10

The Faherty’s Gorgeous Penthouse Is Now Available Nightly.  You can pull up by boat and stay in this penthouse with full kitchenette and deck overlooking beautiful Smith’s Cove.  A Hop Skip and A Jump get’s You To The Rudder or Studio Restaurant’s For Dinner or Drinks.  Amy’s Coffee and Cones is just next door for your quick snack or breakfast at Sailor Stan’s.

Because the place had been under construction all summer it hasn’t been advertised so there is still availability even though we are in the height of the tourist season.

Great insider scoop right there baby!

Thursday Night Blues Jam @ The Rhumb Line

A few words from Mr. Dave Sags himself,

Sick and tired of the same old thing? Wanna add some voltage to your puny, miserable existence? Do you feel like slashing your ankles everytime you look in the mirror, or while reading the Herald? Then, maybe I can help you out. You need my new recession eraser: Mr. Larry Sortwell. Hobgoblin on glitar, menace to the Muses, and snake oil singer. This guy is something else, and a truly wonderful cat to work with, too. But don’t just believe me, czech it out for yooself. You’ll throw those razor blades away for good , this time.
Pushing good ol’ L-man over the top will be Jeff Casper, the friendly drummer, a fugitive from these parts since he caught the Katy. Be good to see him, for a change. And, of course, Greg “Whammy Bar” Tower  and myself will be there too. You’ll never be the same. Don’t ever change.

9:00 to 12:00

“Art not Art” from deb Clarke

Art not Art

from; deb Clarke

A few years ago I found a dozen of these handblown glass panels at the building center.  i incorporated them into wax/gild wire creations.  the heat of this summer has melted the wax and most of the gold leaf is now buried in the wax.  i like playing around with the idea of what is art, is it the making of something intentional?  my intent here was to show off the beauty of the materials.  

it’s summertime, so here’s a pic of my garden, which is coming in later than other gardens around here.  must be the shade from the oak.
