Do you like Eggs? I sure do. If you like Eggs and also enjoy visiting the weird little artsy pop-up events that happen in NYC every so often, such as the Museum of Ice Cream and The Musuem of Feelings, then you will want to check out The Egg House. Celebrating its grand opening this past weekend, The Egg House is an egg-themed pop up featuring immersive installations and offering a multi-sensory, interactive experience, not to mention — but you can see I am about to — the thing that the kids seem to love most these days: endless Instagram /selfie opportunities!

I attended the Press Preview of The Egg House the day before it opened to the public, and it was a pretty sweet time! First of all, there were all kinds of free treats, such as delicious real Egg Nog spiked with your choice Brandy or Rum!

Egg Nog

The Eggnog was supplied by subscription breakfast delivery service, Break & Co. Find out more about them at Break Co Dot NYC!

Egg Macarons

Free Egg-Shaped Macarons? I’m there!

Samples of treats like these will be available at varying times and are included in the price of your ticket, while vendors Egg Shop, along with Egg Waffle Ice Cream Shop Eggloo will have egg-themed food available for purchase.

Egg Shop Booth

At the press event, the Egg Shop kiosk also served as a DJ booth and provided the rockin’ tunes along with these Fried Egg-shaped White Chocolate Pops!

In addition being a place where you can eat lots of sweet snacks, The Egg House was created to share the universal love of eggs and provide a momentary escape from the city. It is home to a character named Ellis, an egg who made his  way to New York City (note: while the official story refers to Ellis as “he,” I heard Egg House guides referring to Ellis as “she” on my visit,  so I guess there is no fixed answer on that). Like some of us, Ellis struggles, yet remains very hopeful. One afternoon, Ellis falls asleep and guests are invited to explore his house. Egg-citing! Seamlessly connected by a storyline, The Egg House features real life-sized rooms, including The Kitchen, The Foyer, The Pool, Ellis’s Bedroom and The Garden — a in a 3,300 square feet space! Please enjoy a preview of The Egg House, and what you’ll find in the various rooms, via a selection of photos from my visit!

Egg House Kitchen

The first room you come to is an interactive selfie-heaven: the Kitchen.

Op Art Floor Covering

Next, you move on to the Hallway, with its Bridget Riley-esque Op Art floor covering!

Foyer

Ask for a token which you can use to buy an Egg Shop souvenir pin from one of these old-school vending machines!
If you want to renovate your bathroom then might as well purchase some plastic panels and bathroom cladding to have a better outcome!

Next up is The Egg House’s most popular feature: the Swimming Pool, where you can frolic in a pool filed with egg-colored plastic balls! Be sure to remove your shoes first!

Christopher Chiappa’s Eggs-cellent Livestrong Eggs-hibit!

Room of Eggs
I’m So Eggs-cited…(All Photos By Gail)

For his third solo show at Kate Werble Gallery, artist Christopher Chiappa presented a new body of work in its entirety; a series of 7,000 handmade fried egg sculptures that completely invaded the gallery’s two rooms, and every nook and cranny in between. Entitled Livestrong, after cyclist Lance Armstrong’s bright yellow, rubber slogan-bracelet campaign, the show was both visually delightful and a bit overwhelming to experience.

Eggs on Wall and Floor

Chiappa created the eggs in his studio over a period of five years from cast, poured, sanded and painted plaster. Each egg has a slightly toasted edge and a glossy sheen — like the perfectly prepared, over easy egg.

Installation as Seen from the Street

The attention to detail given to the installation of the eggs was absolutely meticulous. They are just everywhere.

And when I say the eggs were everywhere, I mean all over. Here they are on, around and dripping off of the reception desk.

They had a mind of their own!

Lady With Eggs

This woman was actually scolded for stepping too far into this room, where access was restricted, and with good reason. I heard one of the gallerists mention that they were doing their best to stay vigilant at keeping folks from stepping on the eggs as they walked through the gallery rooms, in order to keep each egg in as pristine condition as possible, as the exhibit is moving on to another location after it closed at Kate Werble on Saturday (January 9th). Check out Christopher Chiappa’s website at This Link to find out where that location might be.

Bacon never looked so stylish! In this photo, you can see that the Breakfast Princess has on a rocking outfit, representing all of your favorite breakfast foods, including Eggs (Face, Hair, Shoes), Buttered Toast (Blouse), Pancakes (Skirt) and, most importantly, Bacon (Hair Ribbons and Belt)! And look how friendly she seems! I am so hungry now.

The Pope resigns today at 2:00 PM Eastern Time. File this news under “In Memory of When I Cared.” Love the image, though! Eggs wearing tiny Pope Hats – so cute!

Heart Shaped Bacon for Valentine’s Day Breakfast!

Here’s How to Make it!

  • You will need 12 slices of bacon to make 12 hearts.
  • Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC).
  • Cut your bacon slices in half.
  • Use 2 pieces of the cut in half bacon and shape them into a heart on a sheet pan (make sure this pan has sides so the grease doesn’t get all over your oven!)
  • Bake for 18 – 25 minutes (or until done)
  • Serve with a heart shaped Egg!

Feel The Love!

Egg Rug, Over Easy

Modern and innovative home design gets my attention every time. I love this egg rug where the yolks serve as head cushions – perfect for lounging on the floor and watching TV in true comfort. Eggstatic!
