when doves fly – backstage pass – pacific northwest ballet

30 Mar
March 30, 2010
From needle+thread

i was invited last week to attend another performance of ‘3 by dove’ by pacific northwest ballet, and also the co-ordinating backstage pass event appropriately titled ‘when doves fly’. if you don’t know about backstage pass… they’re a group of 20-40 somethings who promote interest in the ballet by selling a selection of tickets from the season and then hosting events either before or after the performance.  it’s a non-intimidating way to enjoy the ballet (when you don’t know anything about the ballet) and who doesn’t like to mingle or have a cocktail when you’re already out.

this event was one of their bigger ones of the year, and was great for style watching, people watching, and of course, sneaking around backstage…

above dancers chal and lucien- she’s wearing a vest that she said he found for her (and louboutins?), and he’s got a pair of carole mcklellan leather pants. Read more →

march 31– john mayer with michael franti and spearhead, key arena- for tickets and info, doors at 8pm

prairie home companion seattle 2010 garrison keillor
From needle+thread

prairie home companion has been on my list of shows that are a ‘must see’ for a while.  this last saturday i was fortunate enough to go take pictures for after dark on the p-i. if you’ve ever caught a snippet of the show on npr, been lulled into a realm of america that seems to exist only in our imaginations (or history), you’ve heard garrison talk about lake woebegone.

fortunately, tickets for next week’s performance are still available. prepare to be entertained, and laugh at your perfectly summed up seattle self, as described/sung/crooned by mr. keillor himself. Read more →

local hero – tom douglas – paramount – seattle

i first want to apologize that my ISO is OFF, and this picture is grainy/dim/sucktastic (for those who know me- NERVES!). second i want to say… SWEET! it’s tom douglas!   for anyone in the area who loves food, tom is our version of a celebrity. to me, he’s like the seattle-gastro-santa-claus. and he was very sweet to let me bug him for a picture. this little kiosk of goodness in the lobby of the paramount is a VAST improvement over whatever they used to offer. i remember going to a concert ages ago, being famished, and my choices were like nuts or a cookie? tom’s keeping us fed in style. and if you’ve ever been to a party (or wedding!) where he’s cooking… watch for those little grilled cheese bites. you will have died and gone to heaven.

admit it, we love meeting these larger than life online presences in person. add champagne, clothes, delish snacks plus music and you seriously can’t go wrong. nordstrom had their first designer tweet-up last week, and if tweets are any measure, i’d say it was a success. Read more →
