HALLOWEEN WEEK: great nib party
The mighty Friends of the Nib had a great Halloween Party/Art Show last night at the Cafe Racer (where the elite meet to eat and drink) and your loyal reporter had a wonderful time (off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.) What a turnout! All the squares stayed home and the joint was jammed with artists and art fans, hobos, pirates, vampires -- and lots of great artwork. Like reality, the party played out on more than one level. Downstairs, the crowd was lively by the bar, and upstairs, under the black lights, folks were chilled-out and tripping, smiling and dabbling in Day-glo paint provided by the FOTN. Some had their fortunes read by the mysterious prodigy Ruby. Fortune came to friend Tom DeGraff, who became a grandfather that very hour and celebrated his brand new grandbaby Mia Marie with a tumbler of Knob Creek. Knob or Nib, a good time was had by all, and the age of cynical irony is now officially over. Hooray!
What now? Get out there and make some art!
Sincere apologies to the Friends of the Nib who missed the group photo, but getting you folks together is like herding cats.
