"Did you do anything special to celebrate it?"
"What do you mean, all of our events are special!"
Actually last night was pretty amazing, and I saw something that I have never seen before -- and at my advanced age, that doesn't happen very often.
Monday Night Hubba presented Just Add Heather, where they brought in an actual oven, and our host sang, with a full band and burlesque performers, while also baking apple tarts!
They auctioned off the tarts at the end. I bought one. It was delicious!
They had been doing this show as a weekly webcast during the pandemic, but this was their first time doing it out in the real world.
It looks like I haven't done a photo roundup post since August. There are a ton of new galleries, so I'm not going to list them all, but let me particularly draw your attention to the Halloween galleries:
And I'll also highlight only our live shows of the past three months:
In the long cold morning outside the San Jose courthouse, I vended Elizabeth Holmes costumes out of a suitcase for anyone in the trial line.
On Tuesday, Danielle Baskin, a spectator, also brought black turtlenecks, blond wigs and red lipsticks -- a nod to Ms. Holmes's signature look when she ran Theranos -- as well as energy drinks with the handmade labels "Badder Blood," "Bitter Blood" and "Better Blood." She set up shop outside the courthouse before a security guard told her she couldn't sell goods on federal property.
Today I learned: you can't "sell merch" on federal property.
I had to stash my suitcase, but I still have a wig and turtleneck in my backpack. If you're here, we can do a deal at the corner Starbucks during a break later.
Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
One can quibble about the placement of some of the items, but it's a sound taxonomy.
