NewsFLASH with Estacio Villa

Presidential Debate #2 aka SNOOZE-fest 08

I couldn't have been the only one who felt this way during last nights debate.
McCain was running around the issues giving his stump speech (more than Obama did)
Obama showed how he can be too professorial and get boring, with his long articulate answers.
I actually fell asleep at the end. Is it November 4th yet???

The scene on Western and Augusta

These are images from Lotus Keep. The gallery of the Co-Op Image group. Not only do they support the Wall/Mural project, but they have recruited Pearl Dick, the glass diva of Wicker Park to instruct! Pearl Dick people... This is their 5th year and they are having a party. These guys have great events and the art aint bad either. I caught an all star Latino show and it was tight. Their events vary so much you would never know Mike Bangcroft is running them. He is way to quiet to brag anyway. You gotta catch at least one of their parties to know what I'm talking about. 

Vicinity Pics: Wicker Park/Chicago

Shadi is a local icon. He opened one of my favorite restaraunts in Chicago; the Sultans Market.I I promoted this place back in the day at the MCA and several hot spots for free, because I truly believed in the food and the ambiance. It has evolved and transformed over the years, but the falafels are still the best I've ever tasted. The price can't be beat and the salad bar is very exotic. There are always people in there. It's a hot spot for health food. What has become more impressive is the decor. It is important to me to have great art in places I acquire food. I want that positive energy to be absorbed into my sustenance. Art is a nutrient for your soul. Take a look at an original Wicker Park treasure. If it wasn't for this place, I would have starved. I am serious. No joke!
