On June 5, 2008 – I photographed a wine tasting event at the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle. The Consortium of producers from Conegliano-Valdobbiadene near Venice, the main DOC (Controlled Denomination of Origin) production zone for Prosecco, presented Vino in Villa 2008, a walk-around tasting of the finest Brut, Extra Dry, Dry and Cartizze Proseccos from 26 leading producers paired with traditional and eclectic fare. A very tasty and satisfying event!
An old college buddy of mine, Eddie Shieh, wanted to create an innovated way to present short plays and readings written by celebrated playwrights – so he came up with RedRope Playhouse. Last Wednesday, May 17th 2008, Eddie presented “Ex-Lovers – An Evening Reading of Short Plays,” – 8 ten minute plays written by members of The New York Playwrights Lab, hosted by creator Israel Horovitz, pictured below with son, Adam Horovitz of the Beastie Boys. To see more of my photography from this event or for more information, go to RedRope Playhouse, Notes on a Party or Ninu Nina sites. For those interested in Eddie Shieh’s film screenings, please visit RedRope.
