On February 10th I participated in the Annual Taste of Bambooblue. This event, sponsored by the William Simpson Scholarship Foundation (http://wsesf.org/), was held to raise scholarship funds for African-American high school students. It was an interesting evening of art, poetry and good food. I met some very interesting people and made some good connections for future showings and new friendships. One of the best parts of my participation was the sale of two recent pieces (Humility I and Humility II). The buyer and I made an agreement that I would not offer prints or duplicates of the paintings so that he would own one-of-a-kind originals. I was honored that he would want such an agreement. He is also and artist (a photographer), and I hope to add some of his work to my own collection one day. Anyway, if you end up on Homewood, IL (708-799-4700) in search of some exquisite pan-Asian food, the blue is for you.
My favorites: Chicken pot stickers, Chicken egg rolls, Asian quesadillas, corn and crab chowder, mini-burgers, & crab cakes. The sauces and dressings and excellent, especially the blue cheese--no pun intended
