Cherry Bombe in Seattle

Cherry Bombe in Seattle

One of the best events I've attended across the lands is Cherry Bombe's Jubilee.

Join them in Seattle on Saturday, November 2nd, to celebrate one of the hottest food cities around and to discover what’s new, next, and disruptive on the national food scene. Meet the icons and up-and-comers on the Seattle scene, network with members of the Bombesquad, and enjoy one-time-only culinary collabs.

I wish I could fly up and check it out, but I'm swamped with Bay Area sales events. Click here for tickets and don't forget, you're the bombe!

The Farewell

The Farewell

I have a craving for poignant films and the critically-acclaimed, indie darling, The Farewell is just what the doctor ordered. Starring Awkwafina and directed by Lulu Wang, this film centers on a Chinese-American woman, Billi who learns that her grandmother in China is dying from terminal lung cancer. She travels to China to visit her Nai Nai, but struggles to cope with her family keeping the diagnosis a secret from the matriarch.

I was deeply touched by each of the performances and Wang’s directional style. Moreover, I was encouraged to learn, it achieved the US box office record for best per-screen-average in 2019 on its release, and has been tipped as a potential Oscar contender. If you haven’t seen it yet and you like indie cinema, I highly recommend it.

May It Last

May It Last

I’ve been going down an Avett Brothers rabbit hole lately.

It all started with my husband talking fervently about Pete Holmes’ podcast You Made It Weird and how the bros get together for 3 amazing hours and just shoot the breeze. So on a recent road trip I dove in and was so taken with Seth’s and Scott’s life philosophies and musings. Then I started listening to No Hard Feelings, amongst other songs on repeat and finally came full circle by watching the documentary May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers.

I’m not too surprised by this turn of events because every autumn I find myself looking for introspective music for the changing season. If you need some inspiration and thought provoking media to consume post-Labor Day, please dive in with me.

Georgia's Hawaii

Georgia's Hawaii

"It took Georgia O’Keeffe nine days to travel the 5,000 miles between New York’s Grand Central Station and the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Although she was heralded by local newspapers upon her arrival as the “famous painter of flowers,” the impetus for her trip was a different sort of plant life.

O’Keeffe was in Hawaii to paint a pineapple.

At least, that was what Dole (then known as the “Hawaiian Pineapple Company”) hoped she would do. It had approached O’Keeffe in 1938, proposing an all-expenses-paid trip to Hawaii—after which time the painter would deliver the company two canvases for use in a national advertising campaign. O’Keeffe was to determine the subject of these works herself, a degree of artistic freedom that likely encouraged her to accept Dole’s invitation despite an initial ambivalence."

Read the full Abigail Cain article via Artsy that divulges the details of this artist's little known Hawaiian adventure. Also if you live on the East Coast, consider heading to the New York Botanical Garden to see Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i exhibition.
