Erasing Hate: A Documentary at All Saints

Erasing Hate: A Documentary at All Saints

Bryon Widner was a skinhead. Like many skinheads, Bryon was (the operative word) covered with tattoos, including on his face. One day—at a white supremacist rally—he met Julie. They were each other’s way out of the violence, hypocrisy, and hatred of the white power movement. Bill Brummel, a filmmaker and All Saints parishioner, chronicles two […]

Project Housed

For me, the night is sweet. I snuggle in my home with my husband and my dog and we relax together, reading, surfing the web, enjoying each other’s company. (Boz doesn’t read and surf the web, of course. We read to him. Otherwise how else is he going to keep up with current events?) I […]

"Tonight’s gonna be a good night" with Upstream

"Tonight’s gonna be a good night" with Upstream

The Caribbean band "Upstream" got the Farnsworth Park crowd out of their seats (and in this case, in a conga line) at last night’s Sheriff Support Group summer concert. They played everything from originals to Bob Marley (even a reggae version of Van Morrison) after closing with an island-flavored version of "I Gotta Feeling" from […]

You may recall I tried running last May. I was gung-ho which, it turns out, is an anglicized pronunciation of a pair of Chinese words that mean “work together-work in harmony.” My body thought the opposite. (Ho gung?) My body thought “I am not working together in harmony with you on this project. Take THAT!” […]

Tap Room, The

Tap Room, The

WHY When you need to celebrate or seduce. WHAT Our new favorite place to celebrate an occasion, the Langham’s remodeled bar is a thing of beauty, from the old-money, liviing room—style interior to the fabulous heated terrace overlooking the hotel grounds. The cocktails and the bar chow (lobster corn dogs, Kobe beef sliders) are as […]

It’s All in a Name…

It’s All in a Name…

As opposed to Impertinent Cleaners & Laundry? I’ve always loved this sign and the old-school vibe of the place. Now, it looks like it’s undergoing a renovation. You can see the fresh, orange paint on the roof. Underneath, it now says Orange Grove Cleaners. Even if the old, blue sign disappears, this will always be […]
