What We're Talking About This Week

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are hosting their annual Easter festivities in Golden Gate Park on Sunday. There are Easter Egg hunts, an Easter Bonnet contest, burlesque and many musical acts. Our favorite is the Hunky Jesus contest, and this year they are adding a Foxy Mary contest as well.

Growing up we would sometimes visit the Queen Mary with our grandparents. We are excited about the Easter Champagne Brunch they are offering, it looks like a great reason to make the trek to Long Beach. There's also an Easter egg hunt, face painting and a petting zoo, and you can tour the ship.

We're fascinated by Seph Lawless's photos of Disney's River Country, the Florida waterpark that was permanently closed in 2001. The water park opened in the 70's, and used fresh water from a nearby lake. A boy died in the 80's from an infection from the un-chlorinated water. It's been left to decay, and the plants that have overgrown the space have created a haunting landscape. 

The Broad recently opened in downtown LA and we are especially excited to see Yayoi Kusama's piece: Infinity Mirrored Room - The Souls of Millions Light Years Away. Only one person can view the piece at a time, and the space is constructed with mirrors and LED lights, to create a sense of infinity.

We loved the Oscar de la Renta exhibit at the de Young, so it was great to see these photos of the opening night gala on Vogue's website. Curated by Andre Leon Talley, it was great to hear what a fan de la Renta was of the Bay Area: he loved The Slanted Door, and would stop at a peach stand on the way back from Tahoe.
