A random benefit from last month’s earthquake in Napa Valley? Water. Lots of it. Seems all that shaking in the earth opened up fissures in the rocks that have allowed massive deposits of groundwater to reach the surface, turning once parched land into pockets of green. At one creek north of Vallejo, an estimated 200,000 gallons of water are flowing daily down the tiny waterway into the bay. Like all good earthly things though, the surplus is bound to stop. As one hydrogeologist said: “There is only so much water in there. As the water table lowers, the water flow diminishes. It’s like a bank account. You’ve just reached into the bank account and borrowed some money, but the spending spree will eventually end.”
This past Wednesday we co-hosted a party at Le Baron with Selectism for Jonathan Leder’s new film Promiscuities, starring Amy Hood. As one would expect with a sexy film, the crowd that gathered at the downtown club was nothing short of stunning.

All week we’ll be previewing cultural highlights from the upcoming fall season. Today we start with 34 can’t miss art exhibitions opening in September in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Paris.
From New York to Los Angeles and up to San Francisco, there’s a lot of art to see, and plenty of time to see it. It’s a long weekend!

Noiva do Cordeiro is a small town in southeastern Brazil that is populated only by women, most of whom are single between the ages of 20 and 35, and apparently desperately in need of a man. The Brazilian beauties would love to find bachelors to court and potentially live with them, but “first they (the men) need to agree to do what we say and live according to our rules.” Sounds just like marriage to us…
For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Randy Colosky to share his favorite place to eat. Randy is an artist based in Oakland, who creates mind-blowing drawings, sculptures and installations.
“Boot and Shoe in Lakeshore Oakland. I like that the food is pretty simple, pizza with great crust, salads that are properly dressed and not too fussy and sort of weird deserts that are good but not what I would normally get. The menu is not very big and changes slightly seasonally. You know pretty much everything on it is going to be good. The Margherita pizza is something we usually order and the Burrata appetizer is good when they have it. My lady (Nicole) and I like to go there at the end of a long week on the late side—it’s a nice atmosphere, busy but not insane, and the staff is always really nice. You can tell its a place that was really considered and not just dressed up to be fancy and they have some really nice art in there.”
Last night, our intrepid photographer Christos Katsiaouni headed down to No Romance Galleries in TriBeCa to check out the opening of “Never Too Young,” a group show featuring works by Harry Mcnally, Mike Krim, Osvaldo Chance Jimenez and PJ Monte. Here is the scene that he encountered.
