Green Drinks and BAM!

Maarten De Ceullaer's Colour Lights are on the right path, but I really think he needs to take it a little farther.

I'm thinking less clinical containers, beautify it - add flowers.
If your going to just add color to the water. Give it a reason. Dye the flowers, and don't use just one color, separate the inside or add test tubes and have multiple colors.

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Man I LOVE Chipotle,
or more correctly called, Chipotle Mexican Grill. I've been a fan since '95 back in Denver. Many of my friends were the architects for the original restaurants, but when you get down to it, I love the Colorado / Mexican style burrito and the ability to have a beer at a fast food restaurant. Zteca was always a big competitor for me as they had a full bar, and we would hit it in the evening.

The servings are huge for the day you are famished, I used to eat half and save the other half for later as it's to much for one meal.

The best is a Chicken Fajita Burrito with black beans, mild salsea, sour cream and cheese.  All for $6.50.

I've never had a bad experience at a Chipotle, until last week, the cashier was in the back for 5 min while we were waiting to pay. Not a deal breaker, but until then, they had a perfect record for me. I left full, but sullen. Never Fear, I had, as always, put my card in the fishbowl, and won a free lunch for myself and 4 friends the next week. I guess the Chipotle gods had a visit from the Karmic Burrito.
I never thought they could improve their burritos, but 5 free burritos for me and select coworkers made me positively giddy!  

Thank you Steve Ells!!

The Duce

The duce is a great place to grab a bite to eaton in downtownPhoenix.
A very eclectic joint that includes among other things; a workout area, stadium seating with a projector showing older cartoons for the kids, alieza full line of clothing with custom embroidery, soda pop bar, and the kitchen is outside in a refurbished airstream trailer.

I am excited to catch the night life, as we can let the kid watch some toons on the big screen and play with friends.

Photoshop replacement

If anyone has used photoshop, this is a great lite replacement for the expensive product.
It's cloud based, not for the saving of files, but the execution.
It has everything you ever need in photoshop, for the average user.

Phoenix art scene

After forcing the family through a furniture design review last weekend, we thought an art visit would fit. A work associate commented on the Roosevelt streetart walk. So we checked it out.

The first gallery we wandered into was perihelion arts and the art was definitely not your southwest turquoise art scene. I recomm
end stopping by and saying hi to Amy.

Upcycle living had a installation of their boxcar houses, which is not for hobo's. The inside
looks great, but the outside leaves a little to be desired.

Right across the street was five15, an artist run collective. Currently Henry Bellavia of manshed studios is showing his new collection.

It is a Dali esque rendition inspired by the current financial fallout. I appreciated the faceless bankers, with their top hats, and indifference to the world. My favorite was several faceless bankers around a desert campfire, in an all jug band. They all had a certain stiffness you would see of a BP CEO trying to show himself as a common man.

Down the street half another block was Eye Lounge
Danielle D'Aleo in the west room provided "We could be dangerous" an on the wall, vinyl stencil that was fun. A bit Aeon Flux and Dr Suess.

In the east room Kristin Bauer was showing her collection "White Noise".
Which at first seemed mildly interesting, faded shades of white stenciled letters and words. But Kristin was on hand to answer questions, and not letting on that she was the artist, explained a few of the works in both rooms.
After discovering she was the artist, and most of the painting were about "interviews" with people where she collected the "background noise of their subconscious" and then placed it on the canvas as such, the works took on a much deeper meaning. Especially one where the words stood out "If you can hit it every time, you can make it!" I still wonder who this cognitive portrait was extracted from.

Through the heat and the driving, not to mention getting the whole family together that morning, we were all ready for food, Amy Young from had told us about a great new local scene, "The Duce" Which is next.
