well look at that. there’s still a line to get in the academy. no, it’s not the saturday opening. it’s art after dark!
this was pretty special though. first one of 2008. bhutan theme “dragon thunder” and tons of fare and pomp
i like going right at 6 and parking right in front when parking is allowed on beritania right at 6. oh wait. i didn’t just say that. you can’t do that. don’t do that. trickle in at 8 like you always do…
just kyle and the monks this early, which is also nice. until it’s … not.
the food was especial. i read about the monks invading E&O earlier this week to show them how to make bhutan food.
speaking of yummy food. it’s nicholas from E&O. you are pretty damn awesome.
i believe this is the Jasha maroo. lovely huh!
sangay is a bit known for these paintings.
the bhutanese ritual dance in the courtyard was happening now…
…and it was definitely the most crowded i have ever seen the academy. ever ever.
good thing i held on to mikeys jasha maroo while he was filming. it was quite the tasty alternative to seeing the dance again amidst the hoards of people.
ps if you weren’t here you blew it
stepping in and out of the galleries and exhibits means happening upon some rad faces
and office antics
meanwhile in the sexy courtyard….
lurking the lovelies outside
hi selena! hi anne! hi hi hi hi hi…….
joe philipson photography and friends
kara has a sangay original on her hand. i told her to never wash it.
meanwhile downstairs in the interactive rooms…
mark channeled moses
get it right! monks don’t know moses…
see?! there! bhutan, man. BHUTAN.
ps: you can make prayer flags
ps: hot girls in the exhibit! vikki molly! sorry it’s blurry, i was irresponsible with the dragon thunders.
still made it to planet hollywood. because art after dark only goes til 9pm. so all you people rolling in at 8? hope you enjoyed that HOUR. el-oh-ell.
trying to hold still. not working. hi planet hollywoood!
the carparina bar was woah! i didn’t realize it was this green because it was dark. it was like a surprise.
WOAH! GREEN! this will be good for st patrick’s day no?

later that night
there was a bit of a commotion
surrounding one carey hart!
holy crap it really feels like it’s been longer than a year since the grand opening.
they had the new hula girl cocktails there tho. they’re YUM!
the grand opening of hart and hunnington in hawaii had such a delicious selection of treats that i actually named it in my BEST OF 2007 blog. this year they used panya, which was also quite yum. best of 08 so far…
david patterson and carey hart. hi! they were almost shirt twins!
