A wrap of Cans and Cocktails 2010



Last night was the first, of hopefully many, well attended fundraiser orchestrated by our local Stamford bloggers called Cans and Cocktails. Chinese Mirch, one of our newer Stamford Downtown restos, opened their doors to the many people offering cans to the benefit the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County, and take part in some "blogger drinks".

It was all about fighting hunger and I thought it was fabulous. All profits from last night's event went to the charity -- That's awesome. However, if you couldn't make it to the event, there is still time to get in on the donation. Chinese Mirch, located at 35 Atlantic Street, is donating 10% of ALL food sales from this past Monday till today. Today is the last day!!! Thank you to Chinese Mirch.

On a personal note, I have to admit that meeting some of the bloggers I've followed this past year was nice. Matching the blog to an actual blogger person was cool. This is a terrific and talented group of people, who write blogs in their own free time, about a place we all share and love--Stamford. Great job guys! I can't wait hear about the next event......

with the community in which they work. Contact www.loftartists.com or (203) 323-4153.
  
The Loft Artists presents “Pow, Punch, Zoom!,” an art exhibit inspired


by the bright color schemes and popular images and icons of the Pop Art movement of

the late 1950’s through 1970’s, where artists featured simple everyday imagery marked

by bright colors. "Come in and experience our Pop Art for 2010. Art should be fun.

Remember concert posters and record covers of the 1960's and 70's? You don't ! We do,

and we invite you to experience this uplifting, visual exhibit with bold and colorful

artwork from the talented group of the Loft Artists.” Says Susan Frey, mixed media artist

and show chairwoman. “This show is a perfect fit for my humorous & whimsical art,

says Frey.”


Sharing her enthusiasm for this artistic style, loft artist Renee Kahn, says, “I missed the


entire sixties. While everyone else was partying and protesting, I was changing diapers


and carpooling. NOW is my psychedelic era!”

Pow, Punch, Zoom! runs from Sunday, September, 19 through October 31, 2010. There

will be a free opening reception on Sunday, September 19th from 2-5pm featuring

food, drinks, and musical entertainment in our groovy gallery. Make the scene with your

brothers and sisters! Peace.


Pow, Punch, Zoom! is presented with support from the Community Arts Partnership

Program. Made possible with public funds from the city of Stamford, Michael A. Pavia,

Mayor and “Stamford Gives Back”. Sponsored in part by Harbor Point, Kim Harris,

Louis J. Kuriansky Fund, The Rosenthal Family Foundation, Ivan Burns and Wagner

Instruments.
