Canvas, Kombucha & Cake

Canvas, Kombucha & Cake

This Friday, November 20, is a pretty big day for Buffalo. The Public (newspaper) is throwing a 1st birthday party and they have invited me to showcase my photography and offer samples of Bootleg Bucha. I’ll be hosting my art show titled, “Buffalo & Beyond” featuring 20+ photographs on canvas from around the world in addition to sampling Bootleg Bucha, Buffalo’s first and only kombucha brewery (that I recently started with Heather Lucas & Jeff Empric). You’ll get a unique perspective of Russia, Hungary, Norway, Turkey, Netherlands and of course, Buffalo. It’s a huge day for The Public, Norris Clifton Aerial Photography and will be our largest audience sampling to date for Bootleg Bucha.

More on the event can be seen below.

2. Come thirsty! For your enjoyment, a beer/wine bar will be provided by The Lunch Box, 500 Seneca Street’s anchor catering tenant. Also, exclusive spirits will be provided by local proprietors which we will be announcing shortly!

3. Lace up your dancing shoes! The Legendary DJ Dovey will be on the turntables all night providing a funky soundtrack for all guests to groove to. Steve Balesteri will also be joining us to play his favorite solo tunes that you simply will not want to miss. He’s incredible.
