When the Shamrock Still Shone By the River...

...Nights like tonight, when a cold beer's sweat and good conversation in a tight space could cut straight through this humidity, make me wish again it still did. (photo taken circa 2004. all rights reserved.)

"Summer Scoops" @ Lincoln Center -- August 18th

Hi everyone -- I'm borrowing the blog for something personal, but in keeping with the spirit of community and collaboration and partnerships. On Tuesday, Aug. 18th at 7 p.m., I'll be moderating a panel about collaboration at Lincoln Center in New York City featuring a group of extraordinary artists. Among them: rock musicians Stew and his creative partner Heidi Rodewald who co-wrote the Tony-award winning musical Passing Strange (video clip above) and the incredible choreographer Bill T. Jones whose musical Fela! is headed to Broadway this fall. The event is part of The Wall Street Journal's "Summer Scoops" series at Lincoln Center, and I'm pretty damn humbled to be a part of the evening. It would be awesome (and reassuring!) to see some Hudson Valley faces in the audience so if you are interested, tickets are still available online here or by calling 212.721.6500. And please email to let me know if you are coming so I can look for you... Hope everyone
