Pat and I attended the Newcomers event at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on June 4. It brought back memories of the event we attended a decade ago...See NIP pages 21,65, 66.
The food was Cosco's best, the docent tour featured a colorful, post-abstract expressionism exhibition, and the attendees were just as excited to be in Santa Barbara as we were (and are).
Based on the great people we met, the Newcomers Club is still doing well . Several discerning intellectuals mentioned that they were enjoying "Newcomers in Paradise" and looking forward to the club's book group session on June 30. Obviously, the people who have signed up for this event are the "best and brightest" with unusual good taste and perceptiveness.
