Last night was the the JIB Productions presentation of Short Cuts at the Garden Cinemas in Norwalk. Short Cuts featured 3 rarely seen short films by Jonathan Demme, Tim Burton, Joan Micklin and Wes Anderson. Commentary was provided by Connecticut Post film critic Joe Meyers. The event was well attended by an enthusiastic audience. Dessert and discussion followed the screenings. Additional information about the films and future programs can be found at JIB Productions website. JIB Productions also produces the Play With Your Food series in Greenwich, Westport, and Fairfield.
On November 12, Doc's Cafe will be closing, making way for the next phase of the Saugatuck Commons. Our family has known Yvonne since she owned Juba's at the former Peter's Bridge Market and we will miss the warmth and cheer that she and her staff brought to the Saugatuck neighborhood. I did some photos for Doc's after they opened and thought this would be a great time to share them again. Westport's Dan Woog wrote a nice piece about Yvonne and Doc's Cafe final days.
Great day and great weather at Puttin On The Dog in Greenwich, CT. Met lots of people, some clients came by the booth, and it was fun to see so many dogs and their people having a great time. Adopt-a-Dog puts on a terrific show. Very casual and family oriented.
Two weeks ago, I volunteered for the Dine and Design event at the Phillip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut. I had always wanted to go and this seemed like a great opportunity. Well, it was even more amazing than I thought! It was a drizzly day and that made the area seem even more ethereal. Johnson and his partner had planned everything. It was so scenic and pastoral and interesting. How cool to have an underground painting gallery and a round pool and a pond with a small sculpture reminiscent of Lincoln Center. There are 14 buildings overall on the property which are all connected by paths. Because of the light rain, people would drift in and out of focus on the paths like a dream .And the Glass House has an amazing view over a valley, but then when you head down to the pond, there is just as an amazing view looking back up at the house. It is like a 3 dimensional art gallery, all thought out, and each piece planned as part of the whole. All I could think was this would be a great place to have a photo shoot with a family or friends. Any takers?
