Bergamot Station, Santa Monica We met up with Brit and Dan at Tacos Por Favor on Saturday night before hitting the art shows at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica. Brit recently had shoulder surgery and has been layin' low for awhile. It was good to see her out and about! Dan, BritShrimp Tacos
Tacos Por Favor is low on atmosphere, but high on the food meter. We had various dishes: Chicken Sope, Shrimp Tacos, Chile Relleno Plate, Spinach & Egg Burrito. Everything was delicious! Copro Art Gallery @ Bergamot Station
We zoomed over to the Copro Art Gallery at Bergamot for the High Fructose Group Show. It was filled with cool low-brow paintings and sculpture, artists and fans. Outside the gallery there were two food trucks, Lomo Arigato and Don Gow. Art, Ellen, Brit After checking out the show at Copro, we wandered around the Bergamot campus for awhile. There's always cool stuff for sale at the Gallery of Functional Art. We saw some furniture made from bottle corks, a rope-wrapped dog, a metal dress and some interesting how-to books! We strolled back toward the Copro Gallery at around 9 and a band called Black Widow was performing just outside the gallery. They played all instrumental songs, were wearing black Ninja outfits and each covered their heads and faces with a black stocking. Scary, but cool.

It was quite a happenin' scene!

After all that activity on Saturday, along with two SnB groups earlier in the day, I was exhausted on Sunday. All I could manage to do was host yet another SnB group! AND, this time change has made me snoozy and lethargic today!
