Scene: Style and fashion in the historic center of San Francisco, located in the northeast quadrant of the city anchored by Market Street and the waterfront. The Financial District is here, with Union Square, a principal shopping and hotel district. Cable cars carry riders up steep inclines to the summit of Nob Hill, once home of the city’s business tycoons. North Beach is the city’s Little Italy and former center of the Beat Generation. The writers, poets, and artists meeting place was Caffè Trieste which opened in 1956. Francis Ford Coppola wrote much of the screen play for The Godfather while sitting at this cafe. Chinatown is the oldest in North America. The city is surrounded on three sides by ocean and bay, and the tallest building is the Transamerica Pyramid.
Scene and Heard: Yours truly and my soulmate, Beth. ‘‘Love on the Weekend’’, hot off the turntable, John Mayer’s latest tune which debuted during a Facebook Live broadcast last week. And the reveal of the new album, The Search for Everything, is on the way in 2017.
Scene: Happy Halloween hat on Bunny Foo Foo, a 35 foot tall leaping stainless steel rabbit, who resides at Hall Winery in St. Helena, Napa Valley, California. Modern Halloween evolved from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain. The Celts used the day to mark the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and also believed that this transition between the seasons was a bridge to the world of the dead.
Scene: Yasmine Guenancia and Stan Wan at his exhibit — The Europe Years Photographs. The event was at The Laundress, on Prince Street in SoHo. Friends, family, colleagues, and students gathered at the cocktail reception to view, and congratulate Stan. Have a look at the photographs behind the scenes.
Scene: The poster for the event in the window of the store. It’s a small world — the model in the poster, Jennifer Linley Taylor, saw a Facebook post by her friend Bhavaja Kat and commented “Kat!!!! That is me in that photo kicking my leg up in front of the Eiffel Tower!!!”
Jennifer contacted Stan. They haven’t seen each other since about a month after the photo was taken, over 37 years ago. She flew to New York City to see the show and to meet up with Stan at The Laundress. They had a great day together in SoHo at the restaurant Felix on West Broadway, and the Wild Horses of Sable Island Gallery on Grand Street.
Scene: Kelly Cushing, Barbara Camp, and Jennifer Lynn.
Scene: Stan Wan and his wife Sau Ngan Au Yeung.
Scene: The Laundress. The owners, Lindsey Boyd and Gwen Whiting, recently collaborated with John Mayer. They created a pairing of The Laundress X John Mayer Out West Laundry Detergent and Fabric Fresh. Whether on tour or at home, the clean fresh rich tones of the west brings you back to the prairie with this crisp duo. Through this eco-conscious partnership, 50% of proceeds from sales will go to the Montana Association of Land Trusts (MALT).
By the way, John Mayer is one of my favorites and we’re both born on the same day. And here’s one of John’s tunes to help you get into that prairie mood and back.
Scene: Kim Alexis.
