Esperanza in Paradise


Hope in Spanish.

An appropriate theme considering the recent election results.

From the Gala Corina website:
This year’s collaborative event will be held at 1925 E. 2nd Avenue in Ybor City, once the Gulf Millwork & Fixture building.

Now it is the home of Sponsler Bennett Jacobs & Cristal, who have graciously offered Gala roughly 30,000 sq ft of warehouse space for an even wider array of art, music, fashion and live performance.

Opening night for Esperanza will be Friday, November 10th and run through Friday, November 17th, with special events throughout the week.

I stopped by tonight for a preview and found my artist friend Rich Frederick, who is showing some new works in the show.

Well worth a Paradisiac's time to check it out. Closing gala evening next Friday!

Voting is easy in Paradise

I just voted early! I went downtown to the County Center where the Supervisor of Elections office is located. Easy to park on the street. When I went up to the SOE's office - no lines, no waiting! I voted early in less than 10 minutes!

Paradisiacs can all vote early! It's easy!

After Midnight in Paradise

JJ Cale and Eric Clapton - After Midnight

Preview of the new J.J. Cale & Eric Clapton album THE ROAD TO ESCONDIDO due out November 7. Should be excellent.

Update: Oh well. YouTube yanked the video. Sorry.
