After leaving Worm's show at 56 Bogart we hopped on the L and headed into Williamsburg for the opening of "Purple" at one of the larger galleries in NY, Causey Contemporary . It was scheduled to be closed at 9pm, and considering it was already after 9 we gave a call to "our scouts" whom had headed there earlier, and they responded that the place was still alive, and the DJ was still spinning.
Artist John Breiner was already there, and was also already many beers in. Unfortunately for us the beer had run out just before we arrived. It was technically after the place should have long closed at that point.
The two large vertical pieces by Sofia Maldonado caught my eye.
The last time I saw Sofia's work was back in early 2010. It was a lot larger, and a lot more red.

Pink Birds of Paradise also by Lady Pink.

The crew here is a bulk of the crew I traveled with from Worm Carnevale's show at 56 Bogart (NOT A FU#%ING POLAROID- ArtSucks.com). From left to right we have poet Abdul Fattah Ismail, art promoterAudrey Aybar , artist Raquel Echanique, Ana 'DJ AnaMated' Toledo, pastry artist and art model Red Ramirez and ArtSnapper's Mario Valbuena.
Above are two paintings on wood by Miss Van.
Artist Alice Mizrachi stands in front of her installation.
When the gallery seemed to be wrapping up we all decided to travel as a group to find more alcohol and cheap tacos. We ended up here.
Which is apparently a chain, like the Applebees of Mexican food. Considering the bulk of the group I was with can speak spanish I would put this choice of venue on par to a bunch of italians following up an art opening by going to The Olive Garden.
I sat across from graphic designer John Bravo DeMicoli and on his right artist Tiffany Harper.
Raquel poses intentionally blocking Mario. Behind them are photographer Athenais Alcibar, Bob Byrne, and at the head of the table art curator Frankie Velez.
Ana, Raquel, and Red vogue, as much as one can in a chain Mexican restaurant.
As everyone started wrapping up Bronx steel artist and curator Mike McManus and I doodled a portrait of eachother at the same time.

Walking home I noticed this Adult Swim mural is now advertising SUPERJAIL, when only a few weeks ago during the Art Snapper Mural Crawl it was a painted ad for Robot Chicken
