Revel in Portland Editor Janice Grube opens Poa Cafe on N Williams

Inspired by a volunteer trip to Tanzania, Africa, Poa (which means "cool" in Swahilli) is a family friendly cafe that Janice opened with husband Greg and two kids Nico & Rocket. The cafe features a bar and restaurant up front with a creative play space and retail section in the back. New York could use a place like this and we wish Poa lots of luck.  For those in Portland or those visiting check it out.

A blogger finds a Revel in New York sticker on the street and blogs about it



A blogger walking up Broadway found this sticker somewhere in the vincinity of The Ace Hotel and wrote a cool little piece on us. The self congratulatory highlight:

"I was pleased to learn, however, that Revel in New York: A Look at the City Through its People is something very different. A series of guide books and video profiles, Revel in New York is a campaign that strives to showcase members of the city's creative communities from across the spectrum, from dance to architecture to photography to music to theatre and beyond, seemingly composed in a manner that is intelligent, informed and reverent of the city's illustrious past (not just mooching off it). It certainly seems like a cool idea."

Thanks Flaming Pablum!

“Heri Meets Artists Gilbert and George (Again)” (2011)

Reading List | The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol


Chris Trela (producer of the documenatry Guest of Cindy Sherman) teamed up with photographer Gretchen Berg and counterculture icon, John Wilcock (one of the founders of Interview Magazine & The Village Voice) to reissue the 1971 classic, The Autobiography and Sex Life of Andy Warhol. They've updated the content with some interesting stories and new photos and kept the entertaining interviews: Taylor Mead, Nico, Viva, Marisol and the rest of the usual suspects in tact.  The editors will be discussing the book and signing copies at the Gagosian Shop (988 Madison Ave) on June 24th. From 6-8 pm.



This is a rare exception to the usually unimpressive mix of new Warhol media products that have over saturated the market. The industrious producer/publisher Chris Trela releases this substantive work that is both interesting and entertaining.
