This weekend has me headed to The Westchester County Center For the Arts (198 Central Avenue) for the Empire State Tattoo Convention presented by Inked, which runs today through Sunday. Of particular interest to me is Megan Woznicki, aka Megan Massacre. Megan has over a million Facebook likes and is known as a tattoo artist, fashion designer, and alt model. I met with over tea at Grit and Glory a while back and found her to be a fascinating gal. She is an animal rights activist / vegetarian, and is also doing an Internet series on Cruelty Free Beauty for Peta2 . I will talk about her more a later date, but urge you to head to the Convention and say hey from us.
A must-see is this Monday’s An Evening With “Friends” at Liberty Hall at The Ace Hotel (20 West 29th Street). It starts at 8pm and Tickets are 10 bucks. DJ bon vivant Miachael Cavadias—a fine actor as well—will join Dave Hill, John Early, Cole Escola, Kate Berlant and my favorite actress from Girls, Jemina Kirke, in this “variety, talk show, therapy session for all the family.” It will be snarky fun and I will be there.
