Phoenix Rising is truly one of the most unique shops in the Loop! They have one of kind items that you won't find anywhere else. Plenty of gifts that Loopies will love!

On a recent foray Lupe purchased some Portfolio candles. ($5.50 and the whole room will smell of heaven, and since the candles are made of soy wax, none of those petroleum fumes you get from regular candles!)

She also enjoyed the book selections, especially the one about the Star Trek convention where the Trekkies become flesh eating zombies! (You can't get better than this!) And also many beautiful journals and blank books, jewelry and sculptures made by local artists, some Mexican Day of the Dead themed knick knacks, and so many amusing and interesting small items!

Check 'em out!

There is so much going on this weekend Lupe doesn't know what to say!!!

Did you miss Tim Lane's awesome movie at Noir at the Bar on Wednesday? You can see it again tonight! And Joe Meno is there too!!!!

Lupe is posting to late for Art D Tour. They met at the Art Museum at 5:30. One of the tours comes to the Loop for the Regional Arts Commission and Craft Alliance.

Former Loopies Deb Douglas and Amy Bautz are part of Mad Art Six. Both are great ladies and really wonderful artists!!! Their eyes see things much more beautifully than most of us!!! The opening reception is tonight!

Tonight and tomorrow night is the "so bad it is good" movie Birdemic at the Tivoli's midnight movie.

You will want to go tonight because tomorrow is the big Reggae Fest at Atomic Cowboy in the Grove, featuring Loopies Papa Ray (Vintage Vinyl, KDHX Papa Ray Soul Selector),  and DJ The Mad Russian!

And tonight at Blueberry Hill's Duck Room is the Delmar Kingz! Also featuring Loop local DJ Chilly C!!!!!

Former Rocky Horror Picture Show alumni will enjoy this. Lupe remembers the red-haired manager, Dennis, handing these out when he tore your ticket stub.

This is probably dates from 1981 or 1982.

See you in the Loop!!!


Tonight, in the nearby Central West End, Chance Operations presents Vintage Vinyl co-owner Lew Prince reading Arthur Brown. Music will be by the Loop's (and Lupe's) favourite street musician, saxophonist RavenWolf.

Chance Operations is hosted by artist, poet, musician, and Wash. U. alumni Tony Renner, and Webster University professor Chris Parr.

It's at Duff's, starts at 7:30 PM, and is only a $3 cover!

See you in the Loop! (And the Central West! At least for tonight!)
