Postcards From The Edge: A Massive Show of Tiny Art Makes Virtual Debut January 9th, 2021!

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.

Wreaths Across America Hits the Road to Remember and Honor Our Veterans

In a year that, few will argue, has been unreasonably difficult for almost everyone, the holiday season offers us many opportunities to open our hearts, connect with others, and participate in something greater than ourselves. With that in mind, Wreaths Across America (WAA), a national non-profit organization that honors our military with a mission is to ‘Remember, Honor, and Teach,’ will continue this December with the placement of sponsored veterans’ wreaths at 2500 participating locations across America, most notably at Arlington National Cemetery. A highly-anticipated part of this annual event is the weeklong, miles-long parade of tractor trailers, wrapped vehicles carrying veterans and Gold Star Families, law enforcement and motorcycle riders, leading the escort of wreaths to Arlington for placement.

This year’s annual escort of wreaths will have a different look and feel due to the necessary changes being made throughout the country for health and safety. The physical journey – which will include one tractor trailer load of wreaths hauled by Gully Transportation professional driver JD Walker, who is also a Gold Star Father and NAVY Veteran, 11 wrapped CHEVY vehicles carrying Gold Star Families, and nine police cruisers – will take place from Tuesday, December 15th through National Wreaths Across America Day, Saturday, December 19th.

Food and Art go together; so what better venue could there be for throwing a cookie launch party than an actual art museum? We were recently invited to the Whitney Museum of American Art on Gansevoort Street to celebrate leading Japanese French-style confectioner Malebranche’s U.S. launch of its Maru Cha Cha matcha-based  biscuits, and the evening was a terrific mix of food, art and Japanese culture.

The event went beyond the traditional cocktail party to include not only cocktails and delicious passed appetizers, but also tastings of the unique Maru Cha Cha cookies, including an indulgent Trifle dessert recipe by James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Anthony. Guests had the chance to meet and mingle with the Japanese brand-influencers behind Malebranche  (a high end bakery in Japan) and to learn what Matcha — the key ingredient in the Maru Cha Cha biscuits — is all about.

Attention all Foodies: Renowned Chef, Author and TV Personality Anthony Bourdain will be on hand to host the Tenth Anniversary benefit celebration for The Urban Assembly Bronx Academy of Letters; one of New York City’s public schools that provides free education to all of its students. Funds raised at this benefit help to offset the many costs associated with programs that are not covered by the NYC Department of Education, which has been subject to severe budget cuts in recent years.

Bronx Academy of Letters’ exceptional programs include a literary magazine and school newspaper, a Writer’s Forum and Writers in Residence program, college visits for all sophomores and juniors, and study abroad opportunities, as well as a school vegetable garden and clubs and athletic teams. Donor funding also helps to make possible the vital, individualized attention offered by an outstanding teaching and student-support staff. The large majority of Bronx Academy of Letters’ graduates continue on to college.

The Tenth Birthday Event takes place on Tuesday, April 30, 2013, from 6:30 – 9:30 PM at the Metropolitan Pavilion, located at 110 West 19th Street in New York City. Host Anthony Bourdain will be joined by associates of Lucky Peach magazine, a quarterly food journal sponsored by Momofuku Restaurants.
