    Bale Creek Allen: Works from the Nineties

    The man behind the gallery puts himself inside the gallery, in its front rooms this time, with a collection of his compelling creations from the 1990s. Is this a good idea? Tell you what: Since only the best of any other artists he might show can match Allen's skill, ingenuity, and stunning sense of the-ordinary-turned-unique, this exhibition is a great idea.

    Lazarus Gets Licked

    We can barely count all the local craft-beer venues ’round these here parts nowadays (although check this out), but we reckon there’s only one – Lazarus Brewing Company on East Sixth – that’s got the Barb scoop truck from Lick Honest Ice Creams parked at its venue all summer long. The Lick crew will be there from noon ’til at least 9pm every day but Tuesday, dishing up a flotilla of new flavors (we’re especially gaga over that blackberry, lime, and basil concoction) to accompany all those lovely Lazarus brews.
