Moon jars, Warhol snaps, grunge ephemera, textiles, ancient and otherwise old home decor, and the high art of stripes: These are a few of my favorite things at SAM, and, as it happens, the folks at That Place That Just Keeps Getting Cooler have a tradition of inviting outsiders such as Yours Truly and letting us lead tours through our most-loved nooks and crannies.
You should join us on Friday May 14. The tour meets at the top of escalators on the third floor at 6:30. General entry fees to the museum apply.
Chances are good (okay, fantastic) that Friday’s after work happening won’t be quite as off-the-hook as the last SAM event I wrote about. Yeesh. Gazing up at the zillions of revelers from outside the way, way, way sold-out ReMix last February, you woulda thought the Beatles were in town. That party was just plain epic. My Favorite Things tour promises to be a great deal more mellow, but I am expecting the museum to be pretty alive that evening; the Warhol and Cobain shows will have just opened, and following my half-hour stroll through awesomeness, Charles Cross will be talking about his Kurt tomes.
