The L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center Wine Club

Sam and I got involved with this club just this month, and it was great. Not only does the delightful and knowledgeable staff look after you, oenologically speaking, but it’s a great fun date, even for married guys like Sam and me.

It’s $25 a person, for a flight of at least five wines, with generous pours… and the food is great too. 25% of the proceeds go to the LA Gay and Lesbian Center.

Monday, April 7th, 6 – 9 PM (the first Monday of every month)

Art of Elysium: Dominoes at the Beverly Hills Hotel

02-21-08_2214.jpgOur friend and founder of The Art of Elysium, Jennifer Howell, invited us to an evening of dominoes not to be forgotten. “Y’all have to be there,” she said to Sam.

We love this charity as much as a night on the town, this is proven, and Jennifer’s comforting, southern request was all we needed to hear.

There’s nothing like throwing on a tux for a great cause and an hour long visit to the Beverly Hills Hotel, on a rainy Thursday night at 9. And the timing is perfect. It’s Oscar week, so everyone’s in town.

Make Art Stop AIDS

medicine-man-rgb-low-res.jpgA shout out to Jason for putting the Goldstein Kapellas installation “Medicine Man” on my radar, and hopefully on your So Cal calendar. The new work is shaped like a human figure and is made of over 300 suspended HIV/AIDS medication bottles. It hovers at the center of six halos made of syringes.

Make Art/Stop AIDS is an international traveling exhibition of art dealing with the pandemic of HIV/AIDS opening at the Fowler Museum in Los Angeles February 23rd, and running through June 15th before taking off for Mexico City and then Brazil, South Africa and finally India.

Also on exhibit will be one of Daniel Goldstein’s “Icarian Series” leather peices on loan to the museum from the private collection of actor Richard Gere.

The image of “Medicine Man” (above left) will be the official banner for the show and on display through downtown Los Angeles.

For more information, call 415.621.5761, visit goldsteinkapellas.com, or email Jason Lahman. See you at the show.
