Do you miss going to art galleries? I sure do. I know that many galleries have reopened, but as a fairly enthusiastic fan who used to spend nearly every Thursday evening roaming the streets of Chelsea, the scene just feels so dead while Covid keeps us from gathering together to celebrate our shared passion for art. Art! Because of this — even though I’ve been hitting the museums pretty hard — I’ve been feeling rather art-starved over the past year, and that’s just a shame.
I am overjoyed then to tell you of a Massive Show of Tiny Art called Postcards From the Edge that will allow you to get your art-fix on from the safety of your own home, because the whole thing is happening online! But wait, theres more: Postcards From the Edge will allow you to purchase original artworks — many from celebrated artists — for just $85! Not to mention, but you can see I am about to, proceeds from all sales of the art will support a charitable cause! Win, Win, Win! The exhibit kicks off on January 9th and runs through the 15th. Postcards From The Edge will be a must-attend event for Artists and Collectors, with artworks by Deborah Kass, Julie Mehretu, Amy Sillman, William Wegman, Liliana Porter, Robert Longo, Marilyn Minter, Catherine Opie, Jim Hodges, Louis Fratino, Hans Haacke and many more available for the unheard of price just $85 each Here’s how it works.
Post Continues, With All the Details, After The Jump!
Now is your chance to emulate Ernest Hemingway and run with the bulls and you don’t have to go to Pamplona, Spain to do so. 100 Montaditos presents its first annual Running of the Bulls right here in New York City, on Thursday, September 18th, in conjunction with the grand opening of their second location on Ludlow Street.
All participants will meet up at 100 Montaditos’ Bleecker Street location (176 Bleecker Street) where they will be given red t-shirts in honor of the traditional red kerchiefs worn in Pamplona, Spain. The event will proceed for about one mile over to the new eatery at 177 Ludlow Street. Led by a bull-rigged Harley Davidson and several other faux bulls, participants will run, walk or stroll with their friends and/or babies on their strollers from the baby stroller center to the Ludlow Street finish line where their efforts will be rewarded with a two-hour party featuring 100 Montaditos signature tapas-sized rolls and an open bar.
Early registration is currently closed but 100 Montaditos will still be accepting walk ups on the day of the event, Thursday (9/18) doe a $15 registration fee. All proceeds will be donated to Food Bank For New York City, specifically benefiting their month long Go Orange to End Hunger campaign — a citywide effort to unite New Yorkers to become aware and engaged in the fight against hunger.

Be a part of this New York twist on the 14th century-Spanish festival for an evening of excitement, food and drink all while helping combat hunger in New York City. For more information visit 100 Montaditos Dot Com!
