A shout-out to Hoogrrl, a.k.a. Philippa Hughes, a writer’s group friend of mine who has since gone on to fame as a local promoter of the arts. While she calls herself a flaneur, she’s very dedicated in her coverage of the local arts scene and in bringing creative folks together.
I was at her event, Salon Contra at Gazuza, last night. Billed as a “creative conversation”, it definitely was as artists, musicians, photographers, writers and others mingled in a hip environment, fueled by happy hour mojitos and appletinis.
