Fun day in Pomona with good friends
Bunny Gunner and crew was at the "5th Annual Taste of Pomona" sponsored by the Pomona Chamber of Commerce. We had a nice booth with merchandise, pictures of our gallery and shop, and some framed art to show off. Some of the restaurants in attendance included, Tony's Famous French Dip, The Sheraton, McKinley Grill, Safron Catering, DBA256 Wine Bar, Double Tree Hotel, and some others. Also the City of Pomona had a booth along with other organizations such as the YMCA and Western University. It was a great night with lots of good food and good music. The stars of the show seemed to be a group of students from Village Academy who were lucky enough to meet President Obama. Our mayor, Eliott Rothman was in attendance and even helped us load our truck as we packed up. The night was a good time, thanks to Frank Garcia and Pomona Chamber for throwing another successful event.
After the "Taste" we headed back to the Arts Colony just in time to catch a stellar performance by Kimya Dawson. She was kind enough to return to the arts colony were she has played in the past in places like 51Buckingham and 5iftybucks gallery. Her set was amazing, including songs from newer kids albums and some old favorites that make your heart weep and jump for joy all at once. Thanks Rolo, Terry, Joe and the dA for bringing such cool talent to the ears of us Pomonians.
We finished off a great day with a couple of beers at dba256, thanks Johnny for a fun night at Dabooya!
