On Feb. 10, I bumped into two fashionably-clad style setters, above. Alyse Caron was wearing a Buffalo Exchange montage of cutoff jean shorts, a T-shirt, wooly tights and a cardigan. Pricilla Munzo was sporting a superhero trench coat masking a sweatshirt with a profound pink logo and accessorized with an adorable crochet beanie after leaving a fashion-filled day of work at Garnet Avenue’s Buffalo Exchange. I was intrigued by their personal style and decided to tag along to see what they might be up to for the evening.
Live Art and The Turquoise Bar
I caught up with Alyse at an artist’s event that its creator, Brigitte Taylor, calls “Sweet Indulgence,” taking place at the Turquoise Bar, located at 873 Turquoise St. The event featured special live music by Esencia Jazz Ensemble and art displays by True Delorenzo and Hillary Young. I also got to check outTurquoise’s great tapas menu.
We didn’t have to walk too far before we ran into Gary Mendel’s “Sausage Bomb” food cart parked next to Avril boutique on Garnet Avenue, left. Brace yourself: this is the first street meat I’ve seen since leaving New York City almost a year ago, and this tasty treat meets my expectations. Saying good-bye to the girls had never been so easy! Saying hello to the original Sausage Bomb’s attack of sweet, salty, crunchy goodness was irresistible. Gary wrapped me one to go, and I was off to pursue a coincidentally fashionable evening.
Alyse hangs out with two local painters, David Goth and True Delorenzo, chatting about art, style and who will be at Brigitte Taylor’s next “Sweet Indulgence, Love-Infused Celebration” at The Turquoise on Thursday, March 10. This concludes my evening, proving that following a stylish hipster’s lead may take you into a world of sweet indulgence and bring you a pleasant evening.
