Not Even Slightly Daffy

Dean Goelz had his opening on Friday, September 12th. Were you there? If you weren't, you missed a very pro-duck-tive evening.

Dean's Migrations is a challenge of how we act and interact with each other, our environment and our friends and family.

The sculptures are everywhere, from ankle to eye to high in the sky and a simple decision like "What do I look at first?" will suddenly become very difficult. These ducks are quiet, but still have plenty to say.

A few of Dean's drawings are also featured, and they're just as nice. We've made you a special photo tour, but trust us, everything looks much better in person. Dean's show runs until October 5th, so come visit!

If you'd like to meet Dean (he's the one on the right that isn't a duck) you'll have a chance on Friday, September 19th with our Monthly Dinner Series: Foul Play. Reservations are required, though, so sign up soon. Trust us, you'll be glad you did.

You Would Not Believe How Many Drumsticks

If you're any sort of friend to Like the Spice, you already know that Dean Goelz: Migrations opens on Friday, September 12th. Seriously, we can't seem to shut up about it. But that's just because we're really loving Dean's work and we know you will love it as well. Take a look at the online sneak preview to get an idea, and rest assured, there's a lot more we're saving as a surprise.

And speaking of surprises, we've just ironed out the details of this month's dinner. Foul Play will happen on Friday, September 19th at 8:00pm. Just $45 gets you dinner, drinks and entertainment (thank you to our sponsor Pernod). And what will the entertainment be, you ask?

First, artist Dean Goelz will explain the theory and practice behind his sculpture and drawing. Dean's a MICA graduate and works as a freelance artist so he'll surely have something interesting to say. You can read more about Dean on our main web site.

Second, we'll be welcoming filmmaker JL Aronson, director of Up on the Roof, a documentary about pigeons and those who care for them. Aronson has gotten some attention from places like Gothamist and his movie is a trip to the rooftops of a changing Brooklyn, which is a place that few of us will ever get to go. We're really looking forward to having him.

Reservations are required so contact us now to reserve your place! If you've missed out before, take a look at what's been happening without you. See how much fun you'd be having?

P.S. Dean Goelz: Migrations is a Williamsburg 2nd Friday Event.
