The Magic Door

Our dear friend Dwain Kaiser was rushed to the Hospital yesterday with breathing problems. We ask everyone to not be alarmed, as he is in the hospital only for a few days for observation. Thank you all for your concern and for everyone who has offered to help. Joann would like to thank everyone who help pitched in any way they could. Get well soon Dwain as we need someone to greet us as we walk down the north side of 2nd St.

If you would like to help but not sure how, come down the store and buy a few books, they have a great selection, and friendly too!

Grand opening and ribbon cutting of Aladddin Jr.

A busy night for the Colony Tonight!

First of all, it is the grand opening for our neighbor "Aladdin Jr." The Pomona Chamber of Commerce is holding a ribbon cutting for the event. This takes place at 5:30 at 296 W. 2nd St. (Corner of 2nd and Main) in the Arts Colony. Inside Aladdin, is also the long awaited preview of the new lounge room "Night Driving", a curated effort by Perry Tollet (Glasshouse) and Rolo Castillo (5iftybucks). Come by and taste the food, music, and art.

Just down the street at 256 S. Main St. (Corner of 3rd and Main) DBA256 is hosting the Dale Bros Brewery "Pacific Daylight" introduction party. Mmmm ... summer beer. This starts at 6pm.

Two parties only a few hundred feet from each other, I think that's enough to do for a Thursday night. Come out and enjoy the cool summer nights right here in the Colony.

Mixing it up with the Mixed Drink Colony walk.

Yes it was after second Saturday and we decided to celebrate. The night started off with a mini BBQ with friends at DBA. Only had a few beers to start here, but we'll get back to that later. We all had the pirate itch and were feeling like having some rum in us, you know to perk us up from that "so tired can't think straight" slump. Off to Acerogami (Glass House Bar) we all went. And to our luck, Erinn and Jaclyn where there ready to serve our imaginations. For the first round, I ordered the "facebook famous" lychee martini that was delicious and smooth. Susie and Marisa went for "the VIP" (a special martini) and a lemon drop. Now we said we were going to stick to rum and try something different every time, but the drinks got the better of us and we broke the rules right of the bat. Marisa ordered the same drink and I went for a dirty martini with Susie going for the Bloody Mary. Well, this changed things as now Susie was set on those delicious BM's and Marisa going for the Don Juan. At this point anything was game. Jaclyn served up some watermelon shots and Alex and Natalie joined the party along with Brad who was drinking scotch and soda. I was feeling experimental so I went home and grabbed the pickle jar. Jaclyn made me the best pickle juice martini ever, so Susie had some of the same mixed into her BM. At this point Alex was ready to buy me a shot so we had some fruity smooth thing I can't remember. Now around 12 am, we decided to continue our adventure to another bar. Characters was the obvious choice, and a strong one it was. At Characters I ended up just asking Jessica, "Give me something with vodka that's not sweet." I got a screwdriver in a huge mug with some orange wedges mixed in and Susie had another BM, but this one was huge and had a giant celery stick coming out of it. By now, last call was approaching so we decided to take it back home. Back to DBA it was were Tibbi made Susie an awesome Chelada with Clamato and hot sauce and other stuff I don't remember. In keeping with the martini vibe, he also served us up mixed nuts in a martini glass. Thanks Jaclyn, Erinn, Tibbi, and Jessica for providing a great mixed drink mayhem bar walk. Maybe we'll do this every "Second Sunday" or is it called "The Day After"?

Bunny Gunner Celebrates Second Birthday

July 2009 marks Bunny Gunner's 2nd birthday. It's been a great two years, even though we have been working in the Arts Colony for almost 10 years. Bunny Gunner plans to celebrate it's birthday during the July Art Walk. We will host a group art show titled “Summertime”. Each artist has created a small work of art that stays within the summertime theme. Besides the art, we will also have live music from “The Sonnets” and other bands, free BBQ’d hot dogs, a kiddy pool, and other fun summer activities. So we would like to invite everyone to come and celebrate our 2nd Birthday during the 2nd Saturday Art Walk.

We are an art gallery, graphic design studio, frame shop specializing in conservation, museum and gallery framing, located in Downtown Pomona at 266 W.Second St. in the Arts Colony.

Certified Framer Susie Eaton, with over 20 years experience in the industry and Artist Juan Thorp are the owners of Bunny Gunner. We are open Tuesday through Saturday, 10-7 and until ??? on the second Saturday and the last Saturday of every month, which is our artwalk and closing reception.
