#SocialSaturday: David Hicks & the Arts

I'm always excited when I get to launch something new!  And today is no different.  Welcome to the first edition of #SocialSaturday, a pictoral look into a weekend round DCoopMedia. 

See, every weekend, I open up the pages of CityBeat (a local San Diego events magazine) and peruse the events that pop-up from Facebook and, camera in hand, I head out into the wild wild west looking for great images, stellar artists, and hidden resources.  It's like taking a weekly field trip with D'Scoop!

Stay tuned every Monday for additional installments of #SocialSaturday.  And hey, if you have an event you'd like me to come check out, hit me up via the contact us page.


#Social Saturday: May 16 - 18

Inside the World of David Hicks & Scout at Quarters D 2nd Anniversary

Easily the most famous interior decorator of his time, late English designer David Hicks epitomized the geometric movement of the 1960's through graphic color combinations and masterfully color clashed interiors.  To celebrate their 2nd Anniversary, Scout at Quarters D paid tribute to Hicks with an installation featuring bold patterns and a signature modern meets antique twist.  The drinks?  Shaken and cool!  The food? Mediterranean all the way.  The room?  It's as if owner Paul Scott Silvera was channeling Hicks himself.

The great thing about living in one of the artistic neighborhoods surrounding Downtown San Diego is that there are never a shortage of art events to whet one's appetite for visual and aural stimulation.  May 17th brought the 18th edition of the ever popular North Park Festival of Arts to our bustling community.  There really was a little something for everyone with a plethora of hand made jewelery, aesthetically appetizing canvasses, and the wares of local boutiques spilling out into the streets.
