Ice cream, Americana architecture, and a mid-century slideshow? Count me in! Friend and neighbor, Heseon, kindly reminded me about the upcoming launch party and ice cream social happening just around the corner for Americana The Beautiful: Mid-Century in Kodachrome, the newest book from kitsch-classic tour guide and "histotainer", Charles Phoenix.
From 3pm to 5pm on June 25th, Mr. Phoenix will be appearing at Zanzabelle in Silver Lake (my favourite store in all of Silver Lake!) to share some delicious cold desserts, present some of his favourite slides from the book, accompanied by his entertaining insight and commentary about the colourful segment of America's heydays. Sounds like an awfully keen way to spend a Sunday afternoon if ya ask me!
Ice Cream Social and AMERICANA THE BEAUTIFUL Release Party
