BcXRZbP]SBc^]Tb Why words matter in the quest for peace

By Will Shonbrun

3

espite the old adage, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known by most that the impact of wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; harsh, accusatory, judgmental or condemnatoryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;last and fester far longer than bodily bruises. Words matter. Ask the preacher or the politician or the pundit. Ask the dictator. First come the words, then the actions. Since the tragic event in Tucson last month, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing from politicians and punditsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; some of themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to turn down the inflammatory and violence-oriented rhetoric, to cool the hate speech and to understand that such words have consequences, as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told so may times. It happens every time these kinds of brutally insane and heart-wrenching rampages occur. Of course words matter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an old, old story, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only to look a short distance to past history: the rationale for stolen land because its inhabitants were godless savages; an excuse for slavery, one of the depths of human depravity, because its victims werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully human; the oppression and subjugation against women and minorities and their relegation to second-class status; the McCarthy era; and the rousing of our nation to war in East Asia or the Middle East through fear and the demonization of some â&#x20AC;&#x153;enemy.â&#x20AC;? Calls for more civil discourse, for less personal attacks and for easing off violent, militant words and symbols are heard throughout the land, as always follows tragic, senseless killings. And while this is the proper and right response, it is undermined by a fundamental hypocrisy in our culture: we are a violent people. We tell our children that problems cannot and should not be solved by violence, and that our differences cannot be rectified through aggression. But what do we show them on the world stage? We invade countries that we disagree with when we believe it is in our interest to do so, and we manufacture the reasons and rationales to get our people to accept, support and fight in these wars. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;invadeâ&#x20AC;? is a too surgical, too clinical word. It does not describe the reality of the act. A recent example: Before our military set foot in Iraq in 2003, we rained bombs and missiles on sections of the country

for two weeks. Remember â&#x20AC;&#x153;shock and aweâ&#x20AC;?? Those bombs and missiles not only destroyed and rendered into rubble buildings and infrastructure, they tore apart human beings: families, babies and children of people who just happened to be living in the wrong place at the wrong time. These were other human beings, no different than our families, friends and neighbors; no different than us. Our military, before and during the invasion of Iraq, killed, brutally and violently murdered, and maimed countless people no different in their hopes, dreams and desires than you or I. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the reality of war. We tell our children not to engage in violence to solve their problems, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first thing we resort to, while at the same time manufacturing and selling arms to practically all the nations of the world. We spend about half of our entire budget fighting and preparing to wage wars. How can we tell our children to seek nonviolent solutions when our actions belie our words? We preach nonviolence and at the same time justify the use of torture. We have a congressman recently calling for the assassination of Wikileaksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Julian Assangeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; not a trial to establish innocence or guilt, but an assassination, a mob hit. This is and other such utterances are the level of discourse from some of our political leaders and extreme right-wing pundits. How can we expect our people to behave respectfully, to debate differences honestly and logically, to keep our national discourse civil when the reality of how we act and what we say projects just the opposite? Only when we stop exhorting and resorting to violence in order to get what we want will we be able to bridge the divides that have grown deeper and wider in our country. Only when our actions mirror our words will we be able to advise our children and tell ourselves and the rest of the world how to live in peace. Will such a time ever come?

How can we tell our children to seek nonviolent solutions when our actions belie our words?

C749>1C74HF4A478A435>A Regarding the letter from Prunuske Chatham Inc. (Letters, Feb. 9): Not being familiar with their work, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t presume to judge. I have, however, done considerable archeological work in Santa Barbara, and am not unfamiliar with how these â&#x20AC;&#x153;studiesâ&#x20AC;? work. The writers state, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The scope of our assessment was not an exhaustive biological study of the impacts of all land used on all of the Cornell properties in the Mark West watershed. It was intended to provide an evaluation of the proposed winery development on one parcel on botanical and wildlife resources. . . .â&#x20AC;? This â&#x20AC;&#x153;assessmentâ&#x20AC;? leaves considerable wiggle room. How close was this â&#x20AC;&#x153;assessmentâ&#x20AC;? to the Mark West watershed? Then, they write, â&#x20AC;&#x153;In fact, PCI did

not state in our report that we saw no steelhead in Mark West Creek, but rather that no steelhead habitat was present on the parcel in question. Mark West Creek does not run through nor adjacent to the property we were asked to evaluate, and thus we did not survey the creek as part of our assessment.â&#x20AC;? Cornell is permitted to pick and choose what pieces of the property are assessed? What about Fish and Game determining what parcels need to be assessed, beginning with Mark West Creek? Companies hired by developers, and who write assessments favorable to the developerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they get the work; those doing a realistic assessment are not hired. (And by the way, where is the archeologist in the EIR? There are likely sensitive Native American sites

on the property. Santa Barbara County requires, by law, that an archeological assessment be performed before development of a piece of land.) Not surprising, this assessment is not a requirement in Napa County, where money makes all the decisions. Shameful.

20A45D;A402C8>=B It was very interesting watching our politicians try to figure out how to respond as Hosni Mubarakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rule was challenged. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a loyal ally for 30 years, after all. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve given him and his regime lots of money, military hardware, training and other good stuff. Hillary Clinton touted him as a friend. Some suggested he should stay or at least be involved in helping transform Egypt into a democracy. And yet there had to be praise for a movement to establish freedom and democracy. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the United States wants for the rest of the world, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take a look. Here are a few of the democratically elected leaders our government has helped overthrow: Mohammad Mosaddegh (Iran, 1953), Jacobo Arbenz (Guatemala, 1954), Patrice Lumumba (Congo, 1961), Salvador Allende (Chile, 1973), Jean-Bertrand Aristide (Haiti, 2004). Here are a few of the many dictators and brutal regimes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve supported: the Shah of Iran (Iran), Fulgencio Batista (Cuba), Rafael Trujillo (Dominican Republic), Anastasio Somoza Debayle (Nicaragua), P. W. Botha (South Africa under apartheid), Mobutu Sese Seko (Democratic Republic of Congo), Augusto Pinochet (Chile), Saddam Hussein (Iraq) and Hosni Mubarak (Egypt). After Mubarak acceded to protesterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demands, President Obama spoke glowingly of the uprising and the new day dawning for Egypt. After.

California just received $17 million to battle the European grapevine moth. Is it really such a threat? By Kylie Mendonca

C

he Rutherford Grange is an old wooden building with white stucco finish, just off the well-traveled wine road of Highway 29. Adjacent to big-name vineyards, it stands as a reminder of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blue-collar roots: unfussy, with a cracked wood threshold and bare light bulbs on the cement porch. Rutherford is, today, one of the premier wine regions in the state. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also ground zero in the battle against a new invasive species in California called the European grapevine moth (Lobesia botrana) or EGVM. On an unseasonably hot day during the first week of February, the Grange was packed with farmers and vintners eager to hear about the

stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for dealing with the pest. Napa Agriculture Commissioner Dave Whitmer delivered the message. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got this thing down,â&#x20AC;? he said of the moth, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got our foot on its throat, and nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the time to let up.â&#x20AC;? The first EGVMs were discovered close to Rutherford in late 2009 and have since been confirmed in 10 counties across the state. The plan for the EGVM in California is eradication, not control. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) have established quarantine zones within a five-mile radius of any two confirmed moth or larvae finds, landing most of Napa County and large parts of Sonoma County in quarantine zones.

The moth itself doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause much damage to the fruit or the vine. The larvae, however, are voracious eaters that go straight for the fruit. Late generations of larvae are actually laid in the fruit, small enough to fit several on the head of a dime, and even the most assiduous farmer might not spot them until the crop is damaged. In 2010, federal dollars poured into the Golden State to trap and monitor the pest, and this year officials are doubling their contribution to the fight, calling the situation an â&#x20AC;&#x153;emergencyâ&#x20AC;? for Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agriculture, even as some farmers and vintners deny the gravity of the situation, harking back to the controversial light brown apple moth scare of 2007. Less than a week before the community forum in Rutherford, the first moth of 2011 had been trapped. Within %.

quarantine areas, growers have been encouraged to spray pesticides even if they never see a moth, while sticky traps along with mating disruptors and pheromone lures are set year-round. In Napa, the program has been very successful in reducing the EGVM population, but whether complete eradication is possible is not clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The good thing is that they are pretty easy to control,â&#x20AC;? Whitmer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The chemistry [of pesticides] is pretty soft.â&#x20AC;? The European grapevine moth was completely foreign in North America until the 2009 Napa finds. Whitmer says that at the time, no one even knew what it was. Samples were sent to the CDFA, and within 48 hours of the species confirmation officials had pheromone lures from the Department of Agriculture and 350 traps set in Napa. The actual number of moths and larvae confirmed in 2009 was low, because detection occurred at the end of the mothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifecycle, but that year one Oakville grower had a 100 percent crop loss on an 11-acre Chardonnay vineyard. While his name is usually left out of polite conversation, that grower has become something of a cautionary tale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where we first saw the pest,â&#x20AC;? Whitmer says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it snuck up on a really well-respected grower.â&#x20AC;? The following spring, in 2010, Whitmer and the CDFA led a $1.26 million campaign against the moth in Napa. The number of traps increased to 8,000 in the county, and roughly 15 extra workers were hired. Close to 100,000 male moths were trapped in Napa County before summer. Sonoma County officials set 4,000 traps, hired 18 seasonal workers and captured 24 male moths before summer. The shock of first-round trapping was enormous; one year the moth didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, and the next year more than 100,000 spread around the state. The moth doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move far on its own, so controlling its movement comes down to managing the movement of grapes and equipment used in vineyards. So far, farmers have had a lot of options concerning pesticidesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or, as some growers have chosen, no pesticides at all. Despite the rapid spread of this moth across California, not everyone is convinced the state is in crisis. Phil Coturri, a 30-year grower in the area who manages about 500 acres of organic and biodynamic vineyards in Sonoma and Napa counties, says the moth is serious, but perhaps not serious enough to warrant wholesale spraying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the damage it can do,â&#x20AC;? Coturri says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horrendous. But do I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re freaking out a little bit? Yes.â&#x20AC;? Coturri himself spent two months in Europe recently learning about the moth, and in his own vineyards, he plants auxiliary crops such as flowers that attract predatory wasps that feed on the larvae instead of spraying pesticides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we wasted a whole bunch of spray and a whole bunch of money and a whole bunch of time spraying so much last year,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think with diligent monitoring, we can control it.â&#x20AC;? This is where some growers and the state disagree. Steve Lyle, spokesman for the CDFA, is blunt on the topic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an invasive species that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong in California,â&#x20AC;? he says. Eradication is the goal. But even for conventional growers, spraying large areas for a pest that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

officially appeared defies conventional wisdom. Pesticides can cost growers between $50 and $60 per acre, mating disruptors cost about $100 per acre, and for organic growers, the cost is driven up by the increased frequency of pesticide application. Martin Mochizuki, a Napa vineyard consultant and official liaison between Napa growers and Napa officials, says some growers want to wait until they see damage to spray. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;to wait until you see the larvae is too late,â&#x20AC;? Mochizuki insists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know one grower who waited. When it rained, you could see it on the webbing. You could see it shining from the road.â&#x20AC;?

The CDFA received a total of $7.8 million from the Feds to conduct statewide monitoring and quarantine programs in 2010, and at the end of the year, 10 counties had confirmed EGVM populations. Eight of those counties, including Napa and Sonoma, had areas of farmland under federal quarantine. But there was progress, also. In California there are three generations of EGVM in a year. Each succeeding generation of larvae tends to do worse damage to the fruit, and under normal conditions grows larger than the previous generation. But by the third generation last year, in the fall, fewer than 300 moths were detected in Napa and just four male moths were trapped in Sonoma County. The Oakville Chardonnay grower was able to harvest again. Almost all of the money marked for the EGVM is what officials call â&#x20AC;&#x153;pass-throughâ&#x20AC;? funds, meaning it comes from the Feds, goes through the state and is distributed to the county level. On Feb. 8, the federal government announced that it would release close to $17 million in emergency funds to battle the pest in California, more than twice the budget of last year. In response, Sen. Dianne Feinstein issued a statement of thanks to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you know, this dangerous and invasive pest threatens to devastate the $34.8 billion agriculture industry in my state.â&#x20AC;? Thirty-four billion dollars represents the entire state agriculture industry, rendering the statement a little dramatic, given the mothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discriminating palateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in California, the larvae eat grapes, and in a pinch will eat olives. Coturri has a different take on the pest than do state and local officials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are we going to eradicate EVGM in vineyards?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so. But we can control it.â&#x20AC;? So far, Coturri has been controlling it well without pesticides, according to his account. He says his organic and biodynamic vineyards, even the ones in quarantine zones, are completely EGVM-free. THE BOHEMIAN

he generation that missed ABBA (mamma mia!) seems nevertheless to have welcomed, open-armed, all the Swedish-designed interiors and furnishings that money can buy. IKEA appears to have a magnetic aesthetic in the Bay Area. But will fans of the modern Scandinavian look still feel pulled toward Swedish chic if it means looking hard at whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind the scenes of the global fashion industry? The West Coast premiere of â&#x20AC;&#x153;GrĂśn Modeâ&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Green Fashionâ&#x20AC;?), aka â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco Chic: Towards Sustainable Swedish Fashion,â&#x20AC;? opens Feb. 19 at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, just off the historic square in the town of Sonoma. A sneak peek has convinced me the new Swedish clothes designs are smart and beautiful. But this fashion show is not just about appearances. Anyone eager to try on this new green line will also have to try on the relatively foreign concept of green fashion ethics. Kate Eilertsen tried on the concept and found a fit. As executive director, Eilertsen wants the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco Chicâ&#x20AC;? exhibit to challenge and educate people about what is possible and sustainable in terms of humane, nonpolluting garment-manufacturing practices, and also to raise consciousness about the wastefulness in our everyday clothing-use habits. The clothes that visitors will see piled in the storefront window of the museum are neither the Swedish imports nor somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dirty laundry; rather, the small mountain of garments represents the 68 pounds of clothing each person discards every year in this country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a 25-year-old daughter,â&#x20AC;? explains Eilertsen, â&#x20AC;&#x153;who discovered H&M and all of those fast-food-type clothing stores, where you buy it cheap, wear it a few times and then throw it away.â&#x20AC;? Eilertsen says her daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fashion habits influenced her decision to bring â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco Chicâ&#x20AC;? to California, following its exhibition in Europe and New York. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;not just my daughter, but all her friends,â&#x20AC;? says Eilertsen, who believes the Swedish fashion designers and manufacturers are taking a deep look at an ostensibly shallow industry and stripping away the most unethical elements such as exploitative labor practices and the purchase of materials from environmentally irresponsible suppliers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;High fashion in a sustainable manner means thoughtfully sourcing your materials

and dyes,â&#x20AC;? explained Eilertsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it means constructing the clothes in an ethical workplace, not a sweat shop.â&#x20AC;? In a document issued by the museum, Eilertsen notes that â&#x20AC;&#x153;fashion-related businesses have been accused of destroying natural habitats, using more water than any other industry apart from agriculture, spreading toxic chemicals and producing carbon dioxide emissionsâ&#x20AC;? as well as participating in the common business practice of exploiting labor in poor countries. A 2007 report by Luz Claudio of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences reports that for the roughly 1 billion garments made in China and purchased by U.S. consumersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; 4 garments per U.S. citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;workers make 12 to 15 cents per hour in poor working conditions. China is one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest producers of jeans. In â&#x20AC;&#x153;Waste Couture: Environmental Impact of the Clothing Industry,â&#x20AC;? Claudio concludes that despite all the industry can do to improve, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the biggest impacts for increasing sustainability in the clothing industry rests with the consumer.â&#x20AC;? The selected Swedish clothing designers and manufacturers featured in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco Chicâ&#x20AC;? exhibit boast a very different business ethic. Designer Anja Hynynen claims the use of â&#x20AC;&#x153;only materials that are organically grown and ethically produced,â&#x20AC;? while Camilla Norrback says of her Ecoluxury clothing that wearers can â&#x20AC;&#x153;feel both beautiful and proud.â&#x20AC;? The Sri Lankan workers who construct clothing designed by members of the Dem Collective are paid three times the national minimum wage, while clothing from the Julian Red label boasts that â&#x20AC;&#x153;fair and organic production is reflected in all its production.â&#x20AC;? Finally, the makers of Nudie Jeans boast a code of conduct â&#x20AC;&#x153;based on the U.N. Declaration of Human Rightsâ&#x20AC;? and a policy to work exclusively with democracies. Other ways to â&#x20AC;&#x153;feel both beautiful and proudâ&#x20AC;? might include participating in a slow food event, a clothing swap and classes tied to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eco Chicâ&#x20AC;? exhibit.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eco Chic,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; along with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Daniel McCormick: Iterations of Ecological Art and Design,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 15 at the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. 551 Broadway, Sonoma. Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. $5. 707.939.7862.

C78B;8CC;4?866H 0C4B0DB064 tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that time of year again when on March 18 and 19, chef Charlie Palmer will be hosting his sixth annual Pigs & Pinot weekend, a 48-hour pork-a-palooza. Gala dinners, butchering demos, cook-offs, wine competitions and seminars overtake the Hotel Healdsburg for two delicious days next month, with a battalion of guest chefs and sommeliers leading the charge. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participating culinary and wine authorities include chefs Marc Forgione, Nsancy Oakes and the camera-ready Voltaggio brothers, Michael and Bryan, along with sommeliers such as William Sherer of New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aureole and Fred Dame of Fosterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wine Estates. In all, 60 vineyards (up from 50 last year) and 10 chefs will take part in the celebration, with proceeds beneďŹ ting Share Our Strength and local Healdsburg education.

I

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fret if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score a ticket for the main event, which is sold out. One can still have a taste of Pigs & Pinot at the Hotel Healdsburg, h2hotel and Dry Creek Kitchen, all of which are offering Pigs & Pinotâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;inspired menus with wine pairings and special weekend packages throughout the months of February, March and April. To really go hog wild, opt for the Butchery and Charcuterie overnight package on April 2. In addition to one-night accommodation at the tony Hotel Healdsburg and a three-course dinner featuring Charlie Palmer and Dustin Valetteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Pigs & Pinot gala dish paired with this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning wine, the package includes a hands-on (and they do mean hands on) three-hour pig-butchering and charcuterie class with chef Valette. At a class last month, I watched with awe as Valette sliced up a whole pig from nearby Gleason Ranch into perfect primal cuts before my eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and then with even greater awe, watched myself do a not half-bad job of the same. A primer in prosciutto and sausage-making follows, as Valette stuffs and ties off a rope of seasoned pork links, one fatter and more perfect than the next. It all seems so easy and gourmand that when Valette mentions the casing machine costs a mere $39.99 online, the idea of a bringyour-own-protein, sausage-making party might just begin to ďŹ&#x201A;ower in the mind. The reward for all this knife work? A delicious plate of the seared freshly made sausages and creamy polenta . . . paired with a glass of Pinot, of course.

F8=45>A C74<>34A= <>DB4 rom the feasting pagans on ancient amphorae to the anodyne pastels of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tasting rooms, wine and art have long enjoyed cozy companionship. With Arnulf Rainerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat darker Wine CruciďŹ x safely tucked away in the Tate, what shocking developments could lure Wine Country Mouse down to the lair of sophisticated City Mouse, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art? The labyrinthine â&#x20AC;&#x153;How Wine Became Modernâ&#x20AC;? exhibit, through April 17 at SFMOMA, sports nary a canvas, but when we get to the end, there just might be a bit of cheese.

F

The chief conceit here is that wine became modern in exactly 1976, the year of the so-called Judgment of Paris. Thus, as visitors escape the curious tinkling of rain sticks in the lobby, they enter a shrine to that competitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award winners, alongside a copy of the actual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Judgmentâ&#x20AC;? article itself: a dryly-worded brief sandwiched in between advertisements for tires and whiskey. The scene is stolen by a photomural in which the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wine judgesâ&#x20AC;? in exquisite period threads ham it up in a tongue-in-cheek, ďŹ ctitious tableau that evokes The Last Supper. The hushed reverie of the Terroir room, where international soil samples bathe in their own pool of soft light, begs an interesting question about the fetishization of rocks; the more illuminating feature here is a computer animation depicting the globalization of the wine trade. Hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Port always shipped from Portugal? Yes, but as decades tick away in seconds, the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wine-producing nations bombard each other from across the globe with ever-more vigorous fountains of red. Australia gives up much of its own toward the United States and Britain, while France largely messes upon itself. The locally ďŹ lmed Bottle Shock, loosely based on the events of 1976, makes an appearance in a video loop shared with 60 Minutesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;French Paradoxâ&#x20AC;? segment, and others; architects from Gehry to Graves makes the scene; critter-labels share a wall with femme fatales; and a fauxcounterfeit magnum of 1946 Domaine de la RomanĂŠeConti suggests artful wiles: there was no such vintage. If all this makes one thirsty, the Russian River Wine Road association offers to comp SFMOMA ticket holders for free tastings and other specials, including a wine pairing at Dutton Estate Winery, with cheese. San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, 151 Third St., San Francisco. Open Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Tuesday 11amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5:45pm; until 8:45pm Thursday. $18. 415.357.4000.

?2@A.B?.;A D228 It was such a hit last year, it’s back for more: the second annual Sonoma County Restaurant Week runs Feb. 21–27, with nearly 90 participating restaurants offering special three-course, prix fixe menus at $19, $29 and $39. More than just a promotion by the Sonoma County Economic Development Board, the week is a chance to sample dishes from kitchens both hidden and well-known at affordable prices in an area known for organic ingredients and farm-fresh food. John Ash, Zazu and Stark’s Steakhouse, for instance, all offer a $39 menu; Blue Label, Equus and Jack and Tony’s have $29 options; and El Coqui, the Union Hotel and Peter Lowell’s clock in at the $19 level. Many more restaurants are on board for Sonoma County Restaurant Week, making the seven days a diner’s delight. Reservations, naturally, are recommended. Below, we profile five participating restaurants, while a complete list of restaurants with menus can be found at www.sonomacountyrestaurantweek.org. Now get out and eat! —Gabe Meline

THE GIRL AND THE FIG

Variety the spice of this European-Californian hotspot From the outside, the Girl and the Fig looks like a sweet little French bistro. Wide windows let in the Sonoma sun, streaming over blooming flower boxes. A hand-written chalkboard sign advertises daily specials, all made with local, seasonal ingredients. But once inside, European-style relaxed coolness meets breezy California wine country, overlaid with an element of playfulness. Paintings of voluptuous, brown women embracing figs (and men) hang on the warm yellow walls. Ken and Barbie dolls mark the bathroom doors. An antique bar spans the lounge, its drinks written in pink ink on the mirror above the assortment of liquors, right next to some wooden satyrs with fake figs hanging from their mouths. Dave, the bartender, pours wines from a list that contains only Rhone varietals (you won’t find a drop of Chardonnay) and mixes up drinks like “Bourbon + Bacon” and old-fashioned cocktails like the Sazerac. And figs? Well, you’ll find them on the walls, on the line products sold in the lounge, in the aperitifs, in the paintings—basically, everywhere. Be forewarned: this place is packed. Even on a Tuesday afternoon. Manager Chewy Lebnick says that reservations are a must for one of the 65 seats in the dining area. First opened in Glen Allen by proprietor Sondra Bernstein in 1997, the Girl and the Fig (now located on the plaza in downtown Sonoma) has steadily grown in reputation and influence. But for Bernstein, as well as executive chef and managing partner John Toulze, the goal has always remained the same: to create simple, flavorful country food with a French inspiration. “I liked the philosophy,” Bernstein says. “It’s very easy and it’s community—you know, more a bistro kind of atmosphere instead of tablecloths, Michelin-star kind of thing.” “My father’s family is French, so it was natural thing for me,” Toulze adds. A self-taught chef—Bernstein calls him “intuitive,” a label at which he shrugs and smiles—he left Viansa Winery at Bernstein’s request to work with her at the restaurant. Raised in Sonoma, Toulze grew up in a more European-style household, with lots of cheeses and wine on the table. His family lived on a six-acre property with a huge garden, from which vegetables

were culled for dinner, and this inclination toward fresh food influences his cooking and his recipes to this day. Both Bernstein and Toulze sing the praises of Sonoma and of the winemakers, gardens and farms that make up the area’s bounty. Ninety-five percent of their ingredients are sourced locally. In the past decade, the restaurant has gone from sourcing tomatoes from a tiny kitchen garden in Glen Ellen to a twoacre farm, which produced over 4,000 pounds of produce last September alone. Meat comes from local businesses like Devil’s Gulch Farm, and the bacon and sausage is made in-house. “We are in this incredible pocket. It’s pretty magical,” says Bernstein, “A croque monsieur is just a ham and cheese sandwich, but here it’s made with ham that we make and cure, it’s cheese from Joe Matos Cheese Factory in Santa Rosa, it’s bread from Basque Boulangerie across the way.” While Toulze and Bernstein make trips back to France to cook and study (executive chef Chris Jones could not be reached for comment, because he is actually studying in Paris), they view Sonoma as more varied. “It’s a way more dynamic food culture, not necessarily more sophisticated, but there are changes going on here. It’s more of a renaissance,” says Toulze.

“In France, the food is very consistent. It’s no different from the wine. It’s very structured. There’s not as much room for creativity.” For Sonoma County Restaurant Week, executive chef Chris Jones has come up with a $29 menu that represents the season: a crab salad dressed with kumquat vinaigrette; a main course of local petrale sole (fished from West Coast waters) with potato purée, baby carrots, red pearl onions, Brussels sprout leaves and a tarragon beurre blanc; and a dessert of strawberry-vanilla panna cotta and chocolate-dipped shortbread. The Girl and the Fig is a place where people can go either on a special occasion or just for a drink and a bite of cheese. Mainly, Berstein says, she wants people to feel comfortable— and, of course, to enjoy tasty, country-fresh food. “I want the flavors to really be the flavors. I want a radish to taste like a radish. Simple, rustic, authentic. And for sure, we use a lot of butter and a good amount of salt,” says Bernstein, with a laugh. “We’re not taking shortcuts.” The Girl and the Fig, 110 W. Spain St., Sonoma. 707.938.3634.—Leilani Clark


SPOONBAR

Local food and world-class cocktails at the lovinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spoonful he procures the majority of his kitchenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food. A firm believer in hands-on learning, Mihal has been cooking fulltime for 20 years, since he was 17. Not only did he eschew culinary school, he never graduated from high school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why bother?â&#x20AC;? he smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew exactly what I wanted to do.â&#x20AC;? Though he was sautĂŠing calfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brains in New York City back in his 20s, Mihalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spoonbar menu is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;people pleaser,â&#x20AC;? with familiar fare like steak frites, crispy rock shrimp and the Spoonbar burger, a towering bacon and caramelized-onion-laden affair served on a perfectly toasted black sesame bun. But at Spoonbar, Mihalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only one rocking it old-school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mixologistâ&#x20AC;? Scott Beattie might preside over the striking bar, but he does much more than merely tend it. By crafting classic recipes with the finest of ingredientsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the Geisha calls for St. Germain Elderflower liqueurâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he is resurrecting the lost practice of 19th-century cocktail artistry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to Prohibition, the art of the cocktail plummeted,â&#x20AC;? he explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;because people just wanted something palatable to get them drunk.â&#x20AC;? A far cry from those bathtub gin and tonics, Beattie uses fresh local citrus juices and quality microdistillery spirits to make artisanal â&#x20AC;&#x153;potionsâ&#x20AC;? almost too pretty to drink. But for Beattie, cocktails are as scientific as they are artisticâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he measures everything down to the ounce. In his book Artisanal Cocktails, Beattie betrays a startling array of specific knowledge, right down to what kind of ice cube trays (silicon) to use in order to keep your drink colder longer. Little wonder that even harsh critic Anthony Bourdain, who invited Beattie to appear on his show, had to

The first thing I notice are the bikes lined up outsideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;white cruisers, shiny and retro, parked right across from a giant fountain tinkling with 2,000 stainless steel espresso spoons. Spoonbar already has my attention. Attached to the new h2hotel in downtown Healdsburg, the restaurant Spoonbar is reminiscent of the way people in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s imagined the future, where visionary eco-consciousness meets spacious artistic minimalism. The buildings are greenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;LEED certified, solar-paneled, many-windowed. The bikes are available to hotel guests, who are encouraged to pedal the town, and the spoon fountain uses rainwater collected on the roof. Spoonbarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tables, bars and chandeliers are made from reclaimed woods (black acacia and elm) that warm and soften the exposed cinder-block-chic walls. As far as carbon footprints go, Spoonbar is treading lightly. Even the unisex bathroomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the first Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever encounteredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has low-water flushes and white washcloths in lieu of paper towels. Cool jazz pairs well with my locally sourced Moroccan chicken (the signature dish) thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken three days to prepare. Yep, there certainly are echoes of Michael Pollanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Omnivoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dilemma. But when I ask chef Rudy Mihal about it, he just shrugs and talks about Sicily. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I spent a few years apprenticing in Italy and France,â&#x20AC;? he tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;where you have no choice but to use locally produced food.â&#x20AC;? In Sicily, he met his sea bass and octopus live, straight out of the sea, and cooking with the freshest ingredients translated into an ethos born of necessity and practicality. Mihal ticks off a list of local farms, including Gleason Ranch and County Line Harvest in Petaluma, where

begrudgingly admit that he enjoyed the mixologistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concoctions. As we sit at the long wood bar, with the cantina doors flung open to the sunny sidewalk bustle, Beattie laughingly admits that he spent â&#x20AC;&#x153;about three months drinkingâ&#x20AC;? in order to create Spoonbarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cocktail menu, which is actually known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;manifestoâ&#x20AC;? among waitstaff. The thick, silver-bound book is as much an education as it is a menu. In it, Beattie explains why they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much vodka to offer (consumers pay for the packaging, he argues, not the quality) and how Makerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mark is leading the pack in â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenerâ&#x20AC;? whiskey production. In keeping with their green philosophy, Spoonbarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give Us Your Fruit!â&#x20AC;? promotion, starting Feb. 16, invites locals to bring in their homegrown citrus overflow in exchange for dining credit. For Restaurant Week, the menu includes Gleason Ranch brick chicken, smoked bacon pork terrine, pan-seared California sea bass, Kobe beef short ribs, handmade potato gnocchi, flourless chocolate torte and more. Save room, of course, for cocktails. Spoonbar Restaurant at the h2hotel, 219 Healdsburg Ave., Healdsburg. 707.432.7222.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jessica Dur

â&#x20AC;&#x153;stripping wallpaper with country hats and roses, lots of painting and cleaning.â&#x20AC;? He points out the original hardwood flooring and the baseboards in the bar that were made from wood â&#x20AC;&#x153;shaved off the top of the old water tower out back.â&#x20AC;? The hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven guest rooms provide the opportunity for patrons to stay after dinner and drinks. Running the hotel is a joint effort. Campbell runs the front of the house and tends bar, and Guenther cooks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to dabble in the barâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we love cocktails,â&#x20AC;? Guenther enthuses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have lots of rare liquors and unusual offerings, and have a blast using new and different ingredients.â&#x20AC;? Guenther describes his menu as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Southern comfortâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;southern inspired, locally farm-driven food. Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandma Deville lived in Texas near the Gulf Coast, and Guenther cooked with her for many years and fell in love with the cuisine. They made grits, pork chops, eggs and big buttermilk biscuits for breakfasts, enjoyed blue crab feeds and oysters from the Gulf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the perfect template for a cuisine that consolidated all the seasonal and regional foods. Southern cooking is about what comes out of the garden and what is fresh and seasonal.â&#x20AC;? True to Grandma Devilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking, the restaurant combines the fresh bounty of Sonoma County with Southern flavors. Bacon lovers will be thrilled with the multiple uses of crispy pork on the menu: bacon garnishes deviled eggs; combines with cream cheese, cornbread and arugula as a key ingredient in the special house oysters; appears as lardons in the Bloomfield butter lettuce salad; wraps Cloverdale rabbit loins; graces the Gulf shrimp or fried oyster poâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;boys; and is slathered on the award winning burger as baconaisse.

On a recent Thursday night in the little hamlet of Valley Ford, the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population had increased exponentially from the stated 128. It was Dollar Oyster Night at Rocker Oysterfellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant and Saloon, and while patrons were being seated in the dining room, the bar had already filled. The tall, communal tables overflowed with customers mingling and sharing dozens of raw or barbecued Tomales Bay bivalves, while those waiting for a seat hovered nearby like the redtailed hawks over Valley Ford Road. The crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a mixture of twentysomethings hankering for the saloonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique and potent cocktails, sandy families coming from the coast and locals enjoying the friendliness of a neighborhood pub with live music to bootâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was there to enjoy the freshest local foods in the coolly vintage environment of the historic Valley Ford Hotel. Built in 1894, the hotel and restaurant has been owned and operated by newlyweds Brandon Guenther and Shona Campbell since 2006. After the couple met while catering in Seattle, they decided to start their own company and move to the Bay Area â&#x20AC;&#x153;to be closer to the food and wine epicenter, Sonoma County,â&#x20AC;? says Guenther, while sipping coffee in the front parlor. One day while looking for rentals, he spoke with a potential landlord about his work establishing restaurants. The landlord responded by offering him another property he owned that boasted both a restaurant and a living space, and they drove out to Valley Ford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I instantly fell in love with the hotel,â&#x20AC;? recalls Guenther. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helped that it was spring and everything was green and blooming. It had a beautiful patioâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the perfect place for holding events. We moved the catering company here and started renovating.â&#x20AC;? Guenther and Campbell did much of the work themselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bacon is a staple; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a seasoning or salt and pepper in Southern cooking,â&#x20AC;? says Guenther. (Indeed, his bright red T-shirt reads â&#x20AC;&#x153;Praise the Lard.â&#x20AC;?) Although bacon is missing from Rockerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sonoma County Restaurant Week three-course, $29 menu, Southern comfort still reigns. Seafood gumbo, Creole caesar salad or a Point Reyes blue cheese salad usher in main courses of Cajun Dungeness crab, buttermilk fried chicken, molasses-bourbon braised pork shoulder or toasted grits with local mushrooms and greens. Save room for apple fritters, Occidental pear upside-down cake or a bourbon vanilla milkshake with pecans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am most proud of our clientele,â&#x20AC;? Guenther says earnestly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The customers make the environment really warm and comfortable. The locals are such great peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all the winemakers and farmers who come in and talk to each other, and mingle with the tourists. The feeling is convivial.â&#x20AC;?

JACKSONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BAR & OVEN Classic favorites done right

highly acclaimed Syrah, at a corner space previously owned by Mixx, a restaurant that long ago graduated from hotspot to â&#x20AC;&#x153;institution.â&#x20AC;? Silvers doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be an â&#x20AC;&#x153;institution.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partly why heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll soon be switching up the menu, dĂŠcor and even the name at Syrah to a small-plate restaurant called Petit Syrah, and partly why he changed the appearance of Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drastically from that of its former tenant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people to walk in,â&#x20AC;? he explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and go, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, they dressed up the Mixx.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I really wanted to start anew.â&#x20AC;? The result is a high-ceilinged space with deep red walls and about five separate eating areas, including a second bar looking into the kitchen and an upstairs loft in the back. Yellow lighting hangs from the ceiling and walls, but the brightest spot in the room is what chef de cuisine Jason Denton calls the â&#x20AC;&#x153;big red beastâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a wood-fired oven that reaches 900 degrees Fahrenheit. At Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, pork chops, chicken, whole fish, steaks, prawns, calamari, oysters, paella, roasted vegetables and mac and cheese all spend time in the oven. At a recent Christmas party, a whole 60pound pig called the oven home for a few hours. Dentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal favorite dish right now is a lamb-stuffed flatbread, with flavors inspired by schwarmas and gyros he used to find living in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;baked, of course, in the big red beast. A secret weapon of sorts in Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen is pastry chef and John Ash transplant Scott Noll, who bakes all breads and buns fresh daily and whose sourdough starterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;begun 20 years ago in Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;powers the dough. Soon after opening, Noll introduced beignets on the menu, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;they just exploded,â&#x20AC;? says Silvers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too tempting, right there on the pizza menu: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Undecided: Trust Us!â&#x20AC;? In other words, the diner orders it, and the cooks choose the toppings. Or, in still other words, a complete surprise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No Suggestions,â&#x20AC;? the menu warns. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touches like this that make Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar & Oven in Santa Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railroad Square a fun, casual dining experience. What gets delivered to me 10 minutes later, however, makes it special: an unexpected pizza of curried cauliflower, seasoned bacon, fontina and mozzarella cheeses and an in-house bĂŠchamel sauce. Its crust is that sought-after form of chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside, with its outer bulbs perfectly blackened at the tips from the 800-degree wood-fired oven. Opened in November 2009 by chef Josh Silvers of the one-blockaway Syrah Restaurant, Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, named for his son, was always conceived as a more casual, less-expensive annex. Indeed, on a random visit, patrons drink Coors at the bar and watch the game; discuss where to find the cheapest gas; feed their two-year-olds peanut butter and carrots; open file folders to talk taxes and eat burgers while Steppenwolf and Led Zeppelin play over the speakers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After cooking Syrah food for a week,â&#x20AC;? Silvers says on a recent Sunday, â&#x20AC;&#x153;what do I really want to eat? Do I want to eat Syrah food? Not really. I want to go out and have a really good burger or pizza or chicken wings. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find chicken wings anywhere in the county that I really wanted to eat. So that was the idea. Somewhere chefs would want to eat in a casual environment.â&#x20AC;? That casual environment was found just a block away from his

been to New Orleans, to Cafe du Monde, the home of beignets, and I like Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better.â&#x20AC;? For Sonoma County Restaurant Week, Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offers a choice of pizzas with caesar salad for $19; a flight of four wines can be added for $10 more. And if you want to eat like the chefs do, add an order of fried potatoes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you take 15 French chefs out to dinner,â&#x20AC;? Silvers insists, â&#x20AC;&#x153;13 of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em are gonna order steak frites.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;classic favorites made with organic, topquality ingredients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to reinvent the wheel,â&#x20AC;? Silvers says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just want it to be perfectly round. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food that people can relate to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all weirded out. You know, we do a hot dog of the day. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a damn good hot dog.â&#x20AC;?

sewing a smart black-and-white-striped awning that hangs above the coffee station. The resulting design may feel a bit unpolished by too-sleek corporate design standards, but it is undeniably friendly and welcoming. Freshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40-seat restaurant and nine-stool bar occupy the center of the spacious hall, and offer eat-in breakfast, lunch, mid-day and dinner menus featuring Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farm-to-table fare and beer and wine on tap. In warmer weather, seating expands to an outdoor patio that overlooks Skyhawk Park. Surrounding the restaurant are a variety of takeaway stations, the largest being a French-inspired market area that includes local organic produce, cheeses, dairy products, gourmet snacks, homemade sauces, fresh pasta, pantry essentials, grass-fed meats, fresh poultry and seafood, frozen goods, fresh flowers and a dangerous aisle called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quench Your Thirst.â&#x20AC;? The aisle features local and global wines and beers, any of which can also be purchased without mark-up to enjoy at the restaurant for a small service fee, making their wine list one of the most wallet-friendly in town. A 40-foot-long deli case brimming with Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature salads, prepared foods and a wide selection of charcuterie spans nearly the length of an entire wall. Made-to-order sandwiches, warm and cold, are also available for takeout, the star of which is surely the grilled Rueben on seeded rye with caramelized onions and organic sauerkrautâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it does a New York deli proud. Box lunches, fitting for a vineyard picnic or lunch at your desk, can be ordered ahead of time or on the spot, as can the popular wood-fired brick-oven pizzas. And to satisfy those caffeine cravings, Flying Goat Coffee is served expertly at the coffee counter, along with various French pastries, muffins, cakes and piesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all baked in-house, of course.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to be back,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Lisa Hemenway, the beloved Sonoma County chef and restaurateur whose new food emporium, Fresh, marks her return from a nearly 10-year hiatus in the retail food business. Her most ambitious venture yet, Fresh features a fullservice restaurant, organic market, take-out deli, pizzeria, bakery, wine bar and coffee house all cohabiting under one 7,800-squarefoot roof. Fresh is clearly a labor of great love for Hemenway, a veteran and darling of the Santa Rosa culinary scene since opening her first restaurant, Lisa Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, in 1983. (Polka Dots, a retro diner in Railroad Square, and Lisa Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bistro in the Town & Country Center followed.) Inspired by the food halls of Europe and the hawker stalls of Asia, Hemenway wanted to create a marketplace devoted to local and organic food that offered customers a range of casual dining options and shopping experiences. She initially had her heart set on an even larger building in Railroad Square in which she planned to lease space to multiple vendors, but when that deal fell through, she adjusted and simplified her vision to suit the slightly smaller, less-central location she now occupies in the former Skyhawk Village Market. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a flicker of disappointment in her eyes when she shares this story with me, but it vanishes almost instantly as she goes on to describe with modest pride how every detail of the finished storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modular design has her aesthetic stamp on it. Despite its cavernous proportions, Fresh feels far from impersonal or industrial. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a human touch evident throughout the store, from handwritten produce signage that names local farm sources to the artisan-crafted wood wine bar. Indeed, Hemenway enlisted family and friends to help with some of the final fixes, like

Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parmesan apple pie might be worth a visit alone.) For the upcoming Sonoma County Restaurant Week, Fresh will be offering two special three-course prix fixe dinner menus. Nineteen dollars buys you an organic market salad, a cozy plate of meatloaf with mashed potatoes or turkey pot pie, and a homemade cream puff for dessert. For an extra 10 bucks, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have your choice of stuffed mushrooms or baked brie with garlic jalapeno pepper jelly to start, followed by either grilled salmon or savory skirt steak, and a slice of lemon cheese pie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are really three ways to eat here,â&#x20AC;? says Hemenway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can buy the ingredients to cook yourself, you can buy food pre-made to reheat at home, or you can sit down and dine here.â&#x20AC;? This approach is as business-savvy as it is customer friendlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;Chop once, sell three timesâ&#x20AC;? is Hemenwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto.

2daPc^ažb2daaT]Rh Robert Wuilfe steps in at di Rosa with Enrique Chagoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Surviving Paradiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Shelby Pope

C

o get to the Enrique Chagoya exhibit at the di Rosa Preserve, turn off the highway at the flock of wooden sheep. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ride the jitney up the main gallery, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get lost in the sculpture meadow and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t walk around Rene and Veronica di Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former home, a converted grain barn crammed with art from ceiling to bathroom. If you see a peacock, one of the 30 that roams around the 200-acre preserve, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone too far. On a recent Wednesday in the gatehouse gallery, past the car with a rhino head on its grill, Philadelphia transplant and new curator Robert Wuilfe sits next to a slightly sinisterlooking slot machine. The machine is one of the centerpieces of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surviving Paradise / Sobreviviendo el ParaĂ­so,â&#x20AC;? Wuilfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first show at the di Rosa, an exhibition of Mexican-born painter and printmaker Enrique Chagoya. Chagoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work uses familiar iconography to skewer and satirize social, political and economic realties. Pieces in the exhibit include an electronic dollar bill that continually updates the national debt, a colorful map titled The Illegal Alienâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to Somewhere Over the Rainbow that depicts effects of man-made pollution and 1988â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s When Paradise Arrived, a charcoal drawing that

shows Mickey Mouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giant gloved hand, inscribed with the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;English Only,â&#x20AC;? about to f lick away a young Hispanic girl. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enrique is one of the best living artists, I think, at appropriating pop culture and things that are in the news. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a humor that draws people in, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tackling really tough issues. Like the slot machine,â&#x20AC;? Wuilfe says, inserting a custom coin and pulling the lever as the machine cheerfully beeps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of this crazy fun thing, but at the same time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely serious about the idea that everything revolves around money. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very bittersweet humor.â&#x20AC;? Wuilfe was appointed curator of the over2,000-piece di Rosa collectionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the largest collection of contemporary Bay Area art in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;last July. Already a fan of Chagoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, he knew that Chagoya had pieces in the permanent collection and lectured at di Rosa, but never had a solo show at the gallery. Wuilfe says that he decided not to include Chagoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s religious satire pieces in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surviving Paradiseâ&#x20AC;? for fear that the closeness of the satire would overwhelm the other works. He sees the violent attitudes against some of Chagoyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more provocative works as part of a cultural misapprehension about artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think over the past 10 to 15 years, people have started thinking that the culture wars

were something from the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re past that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not,â&#x20AC;? says Wuilfe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened to Enrique, what happened to the Wojnarowicz video being pulled from the National Gallery, these are things that indicate that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a strong misunderstanding of art and a really strong feeling of people on the radical right that art is an easy target and a luxury that society doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need, which is totally opposite from reality.â&#x20AC;? Wuilfe was the founding curator and artistic director of Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landmarks Contemporary Project, a project that brought contemporary art, mainly site-specific works, into historic sites. Coming to di Rosa, with a large permanent collection and focus on Bay Area contemporary art, was a definite shift from working with 18th-century house museums, as he did on one project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was ready for a little less context,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily looking for a classic white cube, but I feel like this place provides a happy medium between an interesting site and blank slate.â&#x20AC;? The new job has also meant acquiring a crash course in the di Rosa collection, a sprawling collection of more than 800 artists in all media, most acquired by Rene di Rosa, founder and namesake of the preserve, viticulture pioneer and art collector, who died last October. Wuilfe and di Rosa met only once, '' THE BOHEMIAN

at a picnic last summer soon after Wuilfe was hired. As the two were introduced, Wuilfe said he was honored to be there and said how much he loved the collection. Di Rosa was quiet for a minute, and then looked up at Wuilfe from his wheelchair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well,â&#x20AC;? asked the 91-year old, â&#x20AC;&#x153;what donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you like about it?â&#x20AC;? Wuilfe laughs when he tells the story of his three-minute interaction with di Rosa, who combined a lifelong passion for art with an irreverent attitude toward the typically staid art world, often wearing a gorilla suit to formal exhibition openings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The conversation] really put into focus that he was still sharp and wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking for people to be a yes-person to him,â&#x20AC;? says Wuilfe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He liked being challenged, he liked artists that were sort of out of the mainstream.â&#x20AC;? Di Rosaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who got his start as an art collector at Yale when he commissioned a nude portrait, covered the salacious bits with foxtails and then charged his friends to peek underâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;loved supporting new and emerging artists, a passion that Wuilfe shares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What really sold me [on the job] was that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge openness to working with living artists, working with emerging and midcareer artists, and doing things like developing site-specific projects and the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residency program. We really want to make it an experimental laboratory for artists to come here and play.â&#x20AC;? Wuilfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next project, coming in June, is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zombie Proof House,â&#x20AC;? an exhibit addressing societal anxiety, fear and our cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obsession with the apocalypse. Although he speaks excitedly of the possibility of filming a zombie movie as part of the exhibit and acknowledges that the title is somewhat of a joke, the message is a serious one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zombies keep popping up in political, economic and philosophical theory. There are certain zombie ideas that have been proven not to work, like trickle down economics, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re these dead ideas but they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away,â&#x20AC;? Wuilfe says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think every exhibition here is going to ask people, in some way, to look at the world around them in a more critical way and think, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, what is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing to each other? What is the potential for a better world?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? For Wuilfe, who thought he wanted to be an artist but who says he was incapable of finishing anything, curation has served to combine his interests of practical and artistic organization, working with artistic theory and interacting with people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the artist, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the audience and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the institution, and the curator is the one who is responsible for making sure that these three really different groups come together for an exhibition to be successful,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really satisfying. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that I feel really lucky to have found because for a long time I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure what would make me happy. As I started doing curatorial projects, I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; To find what you feel you were meant to do is a great privilege.â&#x20AC;?

Sixth Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Intimate Apparelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; a bit off, but retains power of playwrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s text By David Templeton

;

ynn Nottageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrical play Intimate Apparel, first produced in 2003, has more in common with undergarments than just its title. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s raw, naked truth waiting beneath the layers of Nottageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brilliantly woven, sensitively designed drama, and as the various layers peel awayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;each section of the story named for a different type of fabric or item of clothingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a sense of anticipation builds. From the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very first moments, Nottage hints at things to come. Slyly and surely, with her elegant, superbly poetic voice, the playwright promises that by the end of the play we will finally see her characters for who they really areâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and in the case of lonely, shy AfricanAmerican seamstress Esther, that she will perhaps finally see herself for who she is, as well. Intimate Apparel (which had its North Bay premiere last fall at Marinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AlterTheatre Ensemble) finally comes to Sonoma County in a luxurious if wildly uneven production in the Studio at Sixth Street Playhouse, where the play runs through Feb. 27. Directed by Bronwen Shears with an appealing eye for visual detail, the production works in spite of some unconvincing, superficial performances. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in part because the power of Nottageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s text is nearly impossible to dampen, but also because the direction and pacing are as fluid as the words. When the performances do work, they work wonderfully. Set in 1905, the play takes place in a series of bedrooms and storefront parlors, each indicated by an atmospheric piece of furniture or two placed around the Studioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compact performance space, allowing the action to flow from scene to scene without interruption.

Esther (Naomi Sample), 35 years old and uneasily illiterate, makes her living sewing elaborate undergarments for a cross-section of New York women. These include Mrs. Van Buren (Erin Hoffman), a white society woman with an unhappy marriage and a growing dependency on alcohol, and Mayme (Rebecca Frank), the musician turned prostitute whose sexual adventures are appalling to Esther, even as they hint at a kind of intimacy she long ago gave up hope of experiencing. Unmarried and convinced of her own unattractiveness, Esther lives at the boardinghouse of the big-hearted busybody Mrs. Dickson (Marjorie Crump-Shears). Her only male acquaintance is Mr. Marks (Jeff Cote), the sweet and bashful Orthodox Jewish merchant from whom she buys her fabric, and who clearly shares Estherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unspoken, entirely forbidden affection. Things change for Esther when she begins a long-distance correspondence with George Armstrong (Cameron Stuckey), a laborer working to build the Panama Canal. Unable to read or write, Esther timidly accepts the help of Mayme and Mrs. Dickson in writing to George, gradually falling in love with the unseen pen pal through the beauty of his writing. When, in a letter, he declares his love and offers to come to New York and marry her, Estherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision threatens to tear a hole in her fragile existence, even as it promises the kind of life sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always dreamed of. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Intimate Apparelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; runs Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday through Feb. 27, with one Thursday night show on Feb. 24, at the Sixth Street Playhouse. Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Saturday and Feb. 24 at 8pm; 2pm matinees, Sundays and Feb. 26. 56 W. Sixth St., Santa Rosa. $10â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$25. 707.523.4185.

THE BOHEMIAN



east known of Anne Hecheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alter egos is an as-yet-unnamed screwball comedian. Heche has made wonderful copy off-screen, outcrazying very stiff competition in Southern California. Still, as three separate family memoirs by the Heches make clear, it was in the Godfearing Midwest that the trouble began. And the new film Cedar Rapids is all about how deranged the Midwest can be. With long, glossy red hair and a fiery wardrobe, Heche plays Joan Ostrowski-Fox, an insurance salesperson. The highlight of her sedate year is the annual convention in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, population 120,000. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her time to cut loose. When sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prissily accused of being â&#x20AC;&#x153;a philanderer,â&#x20AC;? Joan flashes a weary look and makes a slow upward wave of the hand: what are you going to do? Based on a robust script by Phil Johnston, Cedar Rapids shows us some captivating alliances during the course of the insurance convention. Ed Helms, the Larry Fine among the three stooges of The Hangover, is the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actual hero. He plays Tim Lippe, a salesman from the BrownStar Insurance Company of Brown Valley, Wisc. After a far more proactive salesman meets with an accident, his ogre of a boss sends him as an alternate delegate. The Best Westernâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;esque business hotel looks like Xanadu to Lippe, who has never left his hometown. His backwardness is further demonstrated by an affair with his former sixth-grade teacher, Macy, played with bawdy grace by Sigourney Weaver. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Did you have a crush on me, too?â&#x20AC;? he asks her in bed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You were 12,â&#x20AC;? she replies.) Timâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only regret is that Macy couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t join him on the exciting trip, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s distracted

by meeting his new roommates Ronald Wilkes (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) and the life of the convention, Dean Ziegler (John C. Reilly). When Ziegler turns up, slapping backs and roaring (â&#x20AC;&#x153;You got any honey on your stinger yet?â&#x20AC;?), itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that the joke about â&#x20AC;&#x153;BrownStarâ&#x20AC;? isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be the only hint of anality in the film. Reilly, who seemed at first to be headed for Rod Steiger roles, is a rare example of a coarse jackass who brings hilarity to every gesture, every unprintable under-the-breath comment. Reilly is so beautifully obscene, tilting his low forehead, standing paunchy and boxer-short-clad and delivering late-night speeches. Zeigler, however, is not monotonous. During a night of drinking, he snaps into lucidity to give Tim some important advice: the small-town naif needs to know that the convention is not on the level, and the churchly head of the organization (Kurtwood Smith) is hardly as pious as he seems. Cedar Rapids is not perfect. It looks roughly edited during a scavenger-hunt scene. The trailers are just as roughly edited; they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a hint of the comedic rhythms of the film. Also, it tries to get away with a kind of small-business-triumphant ending that we can barely accept even in Frank Capra movies. But Cedar Rapids is ultimately humane, always diverting and consistently ticklish. Just remembering Joan swimming up to Tim in the hotel pool, like an anaconda gliding toward a floating baby bird, or Reillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dean popping his eyes as he says something terrible, can make a person really feel good about things. Cedar Rapids opens Friday, Feb. 18 at Summerfield Cinemas. 551 Summerfield Road, Santa Rosa. 707.522.0719.

Mr. Know-It-All

While even the game show Jeopardy! has been taken over this week by a computer, there are still a few human elements left f loating around the world. One of them in its purest form is the music of Woody Guthrie, which in a spate of recent tributes sees another this weekend by none other than Country Joe McDonald. Best known for his â&#x20AC;&#x153;fishâ&#x20AC;? cheer at Woodstock, McDonald has been a fixture at Northern California protests in recent years, carrying on Guthrieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit. He gets in touch with his folk roots on Thursday, Feb. 17, at Aubergine. 755 Petaluma Ave., Sebastopol. 8pm. $18. 707.861.9190.

Wherever twee multi-instrumentalist and singer Gabby La La goes, so goes the shadow of Les Claypool. The Primus frontman has produced her records, invited her to join his touring band and played with her on numerous live dates. So when the f lyers for Gabby La Laâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Torrential Reeds In 1977, jazz was experiencing a rather wanky weather report, and many masters of prognostication predicted heavy fusion to reign. Then came the Rova Saxophone Quartet. Blasting away all notions of tradition, the group featured four saxophones and limitless imagination. Over 30 years later, the group still defies all clichĂŠ, stoking the spirit of free jazz but perpetually inspired by fellow pioneers of structure like John Zorn and Terry Riley. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no reason for any open mind to miss it when Rova plays on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Dance Palace. 503 B St., Pt. Reyes Station. $24â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $29. 415.663.1075.

One hundred years ago this Saturday, a young pilot named Fred Wiseman delivered three letters from Santa Rosa to Petaluma by airplane, thereby completing the first airmail f light in history. Never mind that he crashed along the wayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still an honor for Santa Rosa, where Wiseman bought parts from a local bicycle shop to build his plane after visiting the Wright Brothers themselves. In conjunction with the exhibit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Post By Air,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a live simulcast discussion with Smithsonian curators about Wisemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous f light takes place on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Sonoma County Museum. 425 Seventh St., Santa Rosa. $2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;$5. 707.579.1500.

Pool Hall Privy Just down the street from the bright, big theater for Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grownups is the dark, small pool hall for Napaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kids. Billcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Billiards has been a mainstay of the allages Napa underground for years, and its longevity is a blessing in a town geared for the 21-plus crowd. With no stage and naught but a brass banister separating crowd from band, the atmosphere at Billcoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is intimate and tight-knit. This week, the Santa Rosa band Snipers play

Gabriel Sakakeeny passes the baton, steps down fter founding and directing the American Philharmonic for the past 12 years, principal conductor, Gabriel Sakakeeny is stepping down. This full-size symphonic orchestra started out as a small group in Cotati and is now the largest volunteer orchestra in the North Bay, consisting of 60 to 75 professional musicians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did what I set out to do and more,â&#x20AC;? says Sakakeeny. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I created a viable community-supported entity, and now someone has to take it to the next level.â&#x20AC;? While Sakakeeny wants to avoid the possibility of the organization becoming stagnant after 12 years of conducting, a more ďŹ nancial reason has affected his decision as well. As an orchestra presenting free classical concerts, the Philharmonic is supported solely by donations received from audience members and the community at large. Their mission statement is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make the beauty of music and the power of community alive and available for everyone.â&#x20AC;? Due to the downfall of the economy, peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donations have gone down, and Sakakeenyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to spend 40 hours a week with a volunteer organization has become much more difďŹ cult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I could be paid, then I would stay a little longer,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I have to pay my bills.â&#x20AC;? Sakakeeny will continue to be music director for the next year and a half and manage the artistic side of the operation. The orchestra will choose between six talented candidates for his replacement as conductor. He as well as audience members, community members and leadership board members will choose the conductor most ďŹ t for the job. The Philharmonic has presented more than 60 concerts, and most recently spent 12 days touring northern China, sponsored almost exclusively by the Chinese government. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a wonderful way to go out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starting something from nothing was a courageous thing to do back then, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very grateful for the support, friendship and passion that everyone has put into this.â&#x20AC;? Listen to the sounds of his creation as Sakakeeny conducts his ďŹ nal Philharmonic concert on Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;20 at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. Saturday at 8pm; Sunday at 3pm. Free. 707.542.8234. Mira Stauffacher

2>>;303 Mike Dirnt has brought his daughter to the Phoenix in the years since he played the venue.

Green Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Dirnt returns to the Phoenix By Gabe Meline

C

he last time Mike Dirnt played Petalumaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Phoenix Theater, in 1994, his band Green Day had just signed to Warner Bros. and a small group of protesters calling themselves the â&#x20AC;&#x153;punk policeâ&#x20AC;? picketed near the front doors, accusing the band of selling out. Emblematic of the shunning Dirnt and his band mates suffered from their critics, peers and even former friends when they signed to a major label, the stunt, one would think, would still sting. But 17 years and a lot of water under the bridge later, Dirnt is returning this weekend with his side project, the Frustrators, to the Phoenix Theater. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a place Green Day played at least a dozen times in the early 1990s, and a former stomping ground for which Dirnt still clearly has love. Last week, visiting Santa Rosa to talk about the show, Dirnt ran down a list of reasons he chose the Phoenix for this mini-tour, starting with the obvious. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tom Gaffey,â&#x20AC;? he says, resolutely. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifers, you gotta love â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em. People like Tom Gaffey are in it for the love of what they do. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything like that to make any cash. You do it because you love it.â&#x20AC;? Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the secret to the longevity of clubs like the Phoenix, I ask? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honesty,â&#x20AC;? Dirnt answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in it for the right reasons. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in it for the right

reasons, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to burn out.â&#x20AC;? Sixty-five million records sold, four Grammy awards, enormous stadium productions, a Broadway musicalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;plenty has changed in Dirntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world since that last Green Day show at the Phoenix in 1994. So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relieving to hear Dirnt remember Tom Gaffey so fondly; to quote lyrics from local bands like Nuisance off the top of his head; to have an instant recollection of playing the cafeteria at Piner High School in 1991 for $50. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back then, $50 was a lot more than gas money,â&#x20AC;? he laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a new tire on the van.â&#x20AC;?) Yes, this is relieving, because as music fans, we want stars like Dirnt to remember their roots. Even in 1989, when Green Day made a splash with their first Sonoma County show at the River Theater in Guerneville, it was clear that something special was underway. By their second visit, just one month later, in the banquet room at the Los Robles Lodge on Halloween, a group of new fans rushed the stage to sing along into the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s microphones. The writing, as they say, was on the wall. Green Day would eventually play just about anywhere in Sonoma County, from Andrews Hall in Sonoma and the Cotati Cabaret to a house party on Highway 12 and yet another lunchtime show at Santa Rosa High School. But it was the Phoenix Theater the band played most. Though Dirnt has been back to the Phoenix sinceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; to take his daughter to see Hilary Duff, in 2003â&#x20AC;&#x201D;he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set foot on the stage. This weekend, Dirnt wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just be remembering his roots, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be actively honoring them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of these venues are a home away from home,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;or a home back home. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really sweet.â&#x20AC;? It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always so sweet at the Phoenix. Once, at a 1991 show with Bad Religion, Green Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first drummer John Kiffmeyer showed up and demanded to play the show instead of new drummer Tre Cool. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was awkward,â&#x20AC;? Dirnt recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember the drama backstage. We had really gelled with Tre at that point. Tre was our guy. We not only blended with him as a friend and hit it off on all sorts of levels, but we were just really starting to make strides playing a lot of shows with him. And our drummer came back down and was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is my band! I want to play the show!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And it was really tough. It was a big show for us. So being the mediator that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been, I ended up calling the deal and saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, fine. John, you can play the show. But Tre gets all your cash.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Neither one of them was happy.â&#x20AC;? These days, the chances of Green Day ever playing the Phoenix again are probably slim. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the reasons Dirntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resurrected the Frustrators, after a nearly nine-year hiatusâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so he can play small clubs again. Huge arena shows theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re decidedly not: this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festivities feature a classiccar derby outside and cannibal burlesque dancers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re definitely trying,â&#x20AC;? Dirnt smiles, â&#x20AC;&#x153;to make this show a freak fest.â&#x20AC;? The Frustrators play with Star Fucking Hipsters, the BillyBones, Mystic Knights of the Cobra and Bobby Joe Ebola & the Children McNuggits on Saturday, Feb. 19, at the Phoenix Theater. 201 E. Washington St., Petaluma. 1pm. $12. 707.762.3565.

Jamaica Kincaid on reading, writing and colonialism hirty-two years after her first published work, Jamaica Kincaid has become one of those legendary, nearly untouchable writers in the contemporary literary canon. No doubt sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earned this status, beginning with her 20-year career as a New Yorker writer under the editorial helm of Wallace Shawn and continuing through to numerous books. Her books are often haunting meditations on her childhood and her ancestry in Antigua, a colonized tropical country, where the people continue to fight through poverty and despair. In 1997, she published My Brother, sharing with the world the story of her youngest siblingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death from AIDS in 1996. On Feb. 17, Kincaid appears at Sonoma State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Green Music Center to present a talk titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a Small Space: Reading and Writing.â&#x20AC;? She discusses reading and writing under slavery, and the aftermath of slavery on literacy. The subject matter is no surprise; Kincaid once said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never give up thinking about the way I came into the world, how my ancestors came from Africa to the West Indies as slaves. I just never forget it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a big wave thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still pulsing.â&#x20AC;? After leaving for New York to become an au pair when she was 17, Kincaid was discovered by a New Yorker staffer and began writing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Talk of the Townâ&#x20AC;? pieces. She served as contributing writer for the next nine years. At the time, Kincaidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incisive writing carved her a place in an elite pantheon dominated by white, Harvard-educated men; she used that position to fearlessly critique a world skewed against women and people of color. Now a professor at Claremont College, Kincaid was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2009, and her work is vital for anyone living in a colonized placeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; which pretty much includes all of us. Jamaica Kincaid speaks on Thursday, Feb. 17 at the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University. 1801 E. Cotati Ave., Rohnert Park. 7pm. Free (advance tickets required). 707.664.2112.
