Art Space: New Haven,CT

Now this is what I call a fun restroom. Like the curly cue toilet rool holder as well.

CT Tennis Center at Yale: New Haven,CT

Posted in My Life, Out & About, Strange |

Every time I go to this tennis tournament, which is now called the New Haven Open, it is blisteringly hot. I try to find the least heavy- read fried- thing to eat and to drinl lots of water, which leaves me perspiring freely in my seat in the sun. Usually it is worth it to see top players in a small venue. This year I managed to snag a fan from The First Niagra tent which helped a bit. Saw a great first set between Kirilenko and Wozniacki, only to have the latter retire, leaving us having spent $80 for one set of tennis. Saving her tweaked knee for the USOpen I guess. So what do you think of the pattern of water on the floor between the stalls? Kind of disgusting eh?

Yale School of Sacred Music: New Haven, CT

There is a certain stained glass quality to the color and pattern of these tiles and the plastic calla lily certainly confirms the sacredness of this building.

Yale Reperatory Theater: New Haven, CT

Posted in Decor, My Life, Out & About |

Few theaters hold as many wonderful theatrical memories for me as this one. The walls are sprinkled with photos from them and I well remember seeing the one pictured-"The Piano Lesson" by August Wilson- when it premiered here. Also Meryl Streep as an undergraduate in "The Idiots Karamotzov"! Tonight's world premier was "The Realistic Jonses" by Will Eno, of "Thom Pain" fame,  directed by Sam Gold. An interesting play which we were glad to see, but only gave a rating of 6 out of 10. Glad the Rep is pushing the boundaries as there are plenty of revival and long runs to be seen other places.

Heirloom at The Study: New Haven, CT

This looks like an expensive spa restroom more than a trendy hotel/restaurant one. Notice the choice of cloth or paper for drying your hands. Hard to see, but the flat surface with the kleenex box is lit from underneath. Totally cool. The food was good as well. Loved the fresh taste of the olive oil on the light, crusty slices of bread. Some unusual offerings liked smokes, sauteed ramps and kale salad. Everyone in the group of 5 was happy.

Sorry I could not get ALL of the art on the walls of this restroom in the funky part of town. Homemade everything, including humus. Loved the food and the art all over the walls and the restful local atmoshpere away from all the trendy Yale establishments.

Quinnepiac Club: New Haven, CT

Sometimes the old club look is reassuring. Thankfully I got permission to park in the Citizen's Bank lot next door. Others at the Read To Grow Development Committee meeting had to keep running out to feed the meter. Not easy to park in downtown New Haven.

Union Station: New Haven, CT

I haven't seen this much graffitti on a stall door in a long time. Haven't been taking the train from New Haven for a while it seems. Poor Mikolinski.

Yale Divinity School: New Haven, CT

This tile pattern and palette reminded me of stained glass. Was it just because I was at the divinity school? Well attended art opening for Ellen Priest. If you are in the vicinity, go see her show Mon- Fri from 9 to 5 thru June. Colorful and lively and sometimes stunningly beautiful collaged works based on jazz compositions.

Dr. Pressman: New Haven, CT

Mediocre restroom decoration, however, this is one of the friendliest doctor's offices I have ever been in and if his injections cure my neuroma, I will be a happy walker once again.
