Back to Denver after two weeks of adventures through the NYC art scene. My art stimuli are blown open wide and my vision much broader and slightly exclusive after NY. Definitely savoring the experience and hungry for more. Denver and Boulder are home however, and tonight is Pancakes and Booze Denver, 8 pm - 2 am, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. See you there right?! Waiting in the April sunshine made me glow like a gnome happy to be home. P&B brings together so many artists from not just Colorado, but I've met Unicorns from Utah, Kansas, Nebraska, and Montana. Its going to be a wonderful spring evening with free pancakes and toppings washed down with drinks and an affordable door price of $10!
After install I had a lovely brunch at the Mercury Cafe, a Denver Institution! My craving for Eggs Benedict had carried over from Thursday morning in Williamsburg. Thankfully, the Mercury cafe's delicious hollandaise sauce quenched my craving. Creamy and thick with homemade hot sauce. On my way out, the door had my favorite poster about How to Build Community surrounded by the vibrant souls who have passed through the cafe. Next to it was another poster I hadn't seen before: How to Build a Global Community. Just so beautiful to have the two posters side by side met by barrels of spring flowers as the door opened to the sidewalk.
