Blowhard Units I have the misfortune of seeing you often where we work, your arrogance on full display, deigning to acknowledge others only if they address you first. If you aren't already aware, everyone knows you have less than zero knowledge about what you claim to be an expert about. And it's “Scoville units,” not “Scofield units,” Expert.

Public Hearing on Modification to the San Francisquito Creek Flood Protection Project

When: June 10, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. Where: District Headquarters — Board Room 5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118 Due to the level of external funding available, staff recommends modifying the program document to advise the public of the level of flood protection that can be achieved at this time. As stated in the Modified Project Description, the local-statefunding-only project will be the same as the preferred project downstream of Highway 101; but upstream of Highway 101, the project will remedy channel constrictions and modify bridges at Newell Road and Pope/Chaucer Street to allow the channel to contain flood waters equal to the channel’s capacity of 7,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), approximately a 30-year flood event. Allowing this level of water to flow through the channel will protect approximately 3,000 parcels in Palo Alto from a flood event close to the February 1998 flood, the largest on record. Currently, the channel can only convey a 15-year flood event. If sufficient funding becomes available, a 1 percent (100-year) flood protection project upstream of Highway 101, including some combination of: modifications to the University Avenue and Middlefield Road bridges; upstream detention; underground bypass channels; and floodwalls, could be built.

San Francisquito Creek,1950s flood event

Proposed modifications to key performance indicators: 1. Preferred project with federal, state and local funding: Protect more than 3,000 parcels by providing 1 percent flood protection. 2. With state and local funding only: Protect approximately 3,000 parcels from flooding (100-year protection downstream of Highway 101, and approximately 30-year protection upstream of Highway 101). The full board agenda memo will be posted online on May 30, 2014 at For more information on the public hearing, please contact Melanie Richardson at (408) 630-2035, or by email at

& Taproom ahead of its planned opening next month.

Striking Ahead


TRIKE Brewing Company is nearing completion on a brewery and taproom in San Jose that could produce up to 5,000 barrels of beer annually.

The idea for Strike originated in 2008, stemming from a love for home brewing and the observation that there was a dearth of options for drinkers wanting a full-flavored beer with relatively low alcohol content. Co-founders and South Bay residents CEO Jenny Lewis and brewmaster Drew Ehrlich wanted to make sure their first releases emphasized session beers with less than 5 percent ABV. Since releasing their first offerings back in December 2011 on a contract basis with Hermitage Brewing Company, sales have steadily risen, requiring more capacity to keep up with demand. Strike currently has four beers offered year-round—the session Blonde, session Brown, IPA and Imperial Red. Last month, Strike mounted a successful Kickstarter campaign to raise $20,000 to help furnish the taproom. Metro visited with Lewis and Ehrlich at the soon-to-open brewery site. METRO: DO YOU HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHEN THE BREWERY WILL OPEN? Lewis: We could soft open the taproom in mid-to-late June once we have a few new things coming out that we can pour. We’ll do a grand opening in July once we smooth everything out and know what beers we want on tap. We’ll have an eight-tap system so we want eight fun things on those taps. The first one coming out is the new pale ale that we already announced. SPEAKING OF WHICH, HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON THE “OPENING PITCH” SESSION PALE ALE AS YOUR NEXT NEW BEER? Lewis: We wanted to add to the session series. When we first launched back in December 2011, we put out four session beers and haven’t done one since. There’s clearly a huge demand for them; you have all the big guys doing it and everyone knows what that word means now. It’s just a good hoppy, summer beer. We want to eventually make it a baseball season beer. Ehrlich: We’ll continue to focus on our session and year-round beers, but we’ll be able to do more small-batch beers. I look forward to creating some more interesting seasonals, barrel aging some beers, developing a house yeast and making sours. CONGRATULATIONS ON HITTING YOUR KICKSTARTER GOAL. WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THE TAPROOM? Lewis: Thank you. That was a relief. The taproom’s going to be about 600 square feet. It’ll be a roped-off area, similar to what you see in other taprooms—a couple high-top tables and a couple picnic tables. There will be a big wall of fame with all the names of the first Mug Club members on it. We have more than 150 names to put on that.—Andy Lee A June opening is planned for Strike Brewery & Taproom, 2099 S. Tenth St, San Jose.

n their own, unassuming dolmades don’t look like a dish that would draw a mob. Depending on how they’re assembled, the stuffed grape leaves can resemble little green cigars. But in their element—the San Jose Greek Festival, in particular—the dolmades do attract a crowd, as does every single one of the festival’s food booths. Every. Single. One.

The event, of course, is about more than the cuisine, but as the routinely long lines for gyros, spanakopita and everything else on the menu show, the festival is known for its food. Though assembling a meal from various booths—appetizers, main course, drinks—takes some time, you won’t miss all the entertainment: the live Greek music can be heard around the small church campus. And once you’ve snagged a plate, tables and chairs are set up near the stage to watch Greek dancing. Dessert is an assortment of Greek pastries. Most everyone knows baklava (and for a good reason), but that pastry’s gooey sweetness has nothing on loukoumades, which are small, soft fried dumplings soaked in honey. Dessert does require another little bit of a wait, but the loukoumades are worth it.—Heather Zimmerman Festival takes place May 30, 5-10pm; May 31, 11am-10pm and June 1, 11am-9pm. St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, 1260 Davis Ave, San Jose. Admission is free.

A First Feast

DOWNTOWN SAN JOSE eatery First to Market opened in February, and if it’s all been a bit unofficial since then, that’s only in the sense that the restaurant is now holding its grand opening. The restaurant’s Winter menu emphasized comfort food: mac’n’cheese, pot pies and gargantuan tater tots. Diners at the restaurant’s grand opening, which takes place June 4, will get a taste of about 20 new dishes from First to Market’s Summer menu, and that also includes desserts. Because it’s a tasting event, the restaurant is encouraging guests to attend in pairs. (Although larger-sized parties are welcome, it’s requested that an even number of guests attend.) —Heather Zimmerman Tickets are $100 per pair. First to Market, 399 S. First St, San Jose. Reservations required; call 408.600.2120.

will be featured at Artik Art & Architecture’s 20th anniversary show.

Artik Circle WORKSPACE HAS A complicated identity here in the land of tech giants, with their sprawling offices that make room for arcade games and napping couches. Stiflingly bland cube farms also abound here—and sometimes at those same offices. In either case, though, these workplaces are far more likely to have a foosball table than a fine art collection (unless it’s in the CEO’s office). And even fewer offices hold art openings. This week, a reception marks the 20th Anniversary of gallery exhibitions at Artik Art & Architecture, a San Jose-based firm. Unique in their approach to institutional architecture, Artik strives to bring art and architecture together within the context of the community—and the firm’s office, from its angular modern interiors to its rotating art exhibits, reflects that philosophy, as well.

20th Annual Open House Reception Artik Art & Architecture, San Jose Thu, May 29, 5-9pm; free

Generally speaking, you don't find a lot of architects that bridge the form and function of architecture with the free expression of art. Bill Gould, Artik’s founder, is an exception. In his architectural work Gould brings a unique touch to buildings, injecting his own aesthetics into appendages such as fences, gates—not only in their design, but their fabrication. In fact, Gould maintains a metal shop adjoining Artik’s offices. The firm’s adherence to this vision is evident in the numerous institutions in the area featuring Gould’s distinctive work—among them, Cupertino and San Jose high schools. Gould has also been showing other artists' work in the Artik Gallery for 20 years, typically buying a piece from each show for his own collection. Once a year, he opens up the office for a one-night-only reception and art party. The gallery this year is showing 90 different artists. Local artist Kathryn Funk has curated Artik's gallery for more than a decade.

One of the artists featured in the show, Glen Rogers, worked with Gould 10 years ago at another architectural firm, before moving to Mexico. Other notable contributors to the collection include Tony May and David Middlebrook, both former San Jose State University professors. Whereas May approaches his art with a precision and meticulousness that still always leaves room for a hint of irony, Middlebrook's work explores the limits of artistic mediums, masking bronze or stone as wood, deliberately deceiving the viewer.

LOVE L OVE A AT TAD DISTANCE ISTANCE In the Stephen Son Sondheim ndheim musical ‘‘Marry Marry M Me e

Other notable artists in the collection include Katherine Levin Lau, Jessica Eastburn, Wesley T. Wright and Una Mjurka.

A GUN AND A SON After Richard (Michael C. Hall) kills a burglar who broke into his house, his family faces threats from the thief’s father.

Pistol-Packing Papa THE TEXAS noir Cold in July unfolds its twists lazily but surely; questions of emphasis smooth the changes of mood from a decent man’s shock, to the avidness of a trio of hunters on the trail of bad men. Director Jim Mickle, working from a novel by the all-purpose action writer (and Texan) Joe R. Lansdale, starts with a troublingly calm painting of a lake on a summer night. He pulls back slowly to reveal a middle class living room. In the bed nearby Richard (Michael C. Hall, of Dexter and Six Feet Under) and his wife, Ann (Vinessa Shaw), are awakened by the sound of an intruder. Mickle stages what happens authentically, from the terror of the householders, to the pistol that goes off by accident, to the clean-up afterwards: the painting we saw ends up thrown out on the sidewalk next to the trash cans, spattered with the burglar’s brains. Richard, who has a picture-framing shop, is still in shock, and there’s noticeable friction between Ann and Richard from the aftermath of their home being violated. He can’t handle the high-fiving: “I heard you got one!” Mickle makes sure we get all this before taking a turn into more trad-noir territory. Guilty and obsessed, Richard watches the funeral of the man he killed from his car. Suddenly, Ben Russell (Sam Shepard) pops up in his window: the nearly silent, crophaired, just-out-of-Huntsville father of the dead man. He comments that Richard has

a very nice young son whose picture he saw in the newspapers. The Tangerine Dream-style keyboards on the soundtrack threaten us with the 1,000th version of Cape Fear; the cops are all hat and no protection, hands tied as always. Shepard is ominous, but he’s mannered—doing that little nervous flicking thing with the lighter Cold in July Steve McQueen used to do. We have to wonder how he Not rated; can walk through walls and 109 MIN. window bars, as when he sets Opens Fri. up a tableau of a wounded teddy bear and scattered bullets in Richard’s kid’s crib. That’s when the cops reveal themselves as not inept, but devious, and Richard starts playing offense. We noticed he drove a milquetoast Country Squire early on, now we see the lid rise over the recessed headlight of the station wagon, and it looks like the Batmobile waking up. About a third of the way in, an engagingly confident Don Johnson turns up as a smooth detective piloting a big red convertible called (according to its license plate) “The Red Bitch.” Mickle lines the film with defunct viewing formats (VHS tapes and drive-in theaters) and ominous, Lynchian elements of the evil the men are doing. Cold in July is not deep, but it’s built, and all around it looks like it was made by artisans who knew what they were doing.—Richard von Busack

AFTER GLOW Curious Quail’s new album tells intertwining tales set in a post-apocalyptic world.

Curious Concept

THE POST-APOCALYPSE is hot, at least to judge from comics, movies and TV shows—music, not so much. Even so, Mike Shirley-Donnelly, singer for local indie-rock band Curious Quail, wasn’t sure at first that he wanted to record the band’s new concept album, the end-of-the-world-themed After The Lights Failed, because of the topic’s trendiness. Then again, he had been developing these characters and stories for more than a decade, before the genre was so popular. “If I wasn’t a musician, I would most likely go into writing, and most likely fiction, books, TV, film and so on. I have notebooks full of these stories. Most of it is connected,” Shirley-Donnelly says.

Curious Quail SLG Art Boutiki & Gallery, San Jose Fri, 7:30pm, $10

The end-of-modern-civilization-as-we-know-it concept isn’t even at the forefront of the album. To some listeners, it will sound like a collection of synthy, folky indie-rock tunes, but to those that really dig in, they will catch the narrative that Shirley-Donnelly has laid out: several interconnected stories that all take place after a single catastrophic global event, each song told from a different perspective.

“You can listen to it without knowing the story and enjoy it. But also I’ve taken a lot of time to make sure that everything sort of lines up. People that have heard the album say this sounds like a movie soundtrack. That’s definitely what we were going for,” Shirley Donnelly. Musically, After The Lights Failed encompasses more of the stylistic elements that Curious Quail have always played with. Their debut EP, The Glow—which was essentially a Shirley-Donnelly solo album—mixes a quirky blend of folk and computer sounds. The full-length Instant Gratification was a full band recording and had much more of a heavy alt-rock sound. After The Lights Failed mixes all of these elements together, with a much more theatrical vibe. “It showcases more what we’re about. You got the chiptune elements. You got the fuzzy guitars. You got the down-tempo folky thing. I’m proud of the track list, the way it flows, the ups and downs,” Shirley-Donnelly says. As diverse as After the Lights Failed is, it’s the band’s most cohesive record yet, though not their first concept album. After The Lights Failed marks the first recording Curious Quail has recorded as a band. Even with Instant Gratification, ShirleyDonnelly recorded a lot of it on his own, and would bring in band members to randomly track a guitar part here, or drums there. Before recording After the Lights Failed, the band changed up some members and solidified the lineup, which in addition to Shirley-Donnelly includes: Joey Guthrie on drums, Alan Chen on violin, Erin Keely on bass and Abe Myers on guitar. Together they successfully raised $10,000 on Kickstarter, and recorded the album in a studio as a unit. “It’s no longer just me and my computer,” Shirley-Donnelly says. “We were really anxious to get something out there that was like, ‘hey world, this is the five of us.’”—Aaron Carnes

But my my guess is there’s there’s a researcher researcher or two tw wo who’d who’d love lo ve to get a look lo ook at your your eyes. eyes e. Here’s Here’s whatt we know: 1. The closest closesst I can caan find to a name for for o what you you describe desccribe is unilateral color color blindness,, a condition blindness condition in which one eye eye has normal color col olor vision and the other doesn’t. do esn n’’t. I’m farr from frro om certain cer e tain that’s that’s what Tho yyou’ve ou’ve got.

Whenever Wheneever someone posts p osts online saying saaying y they’ve theeyy’ve got it, dozens of others chime chim me in to say, saay, “me too. too.” 3.

Another thing that may t maay contribute contribute to a difference diff ffeerencce in color color perception perception is artificial an ar tificial lens, len ns, or no lens at all. I’m assuming this doesn’t doesn n’’t apply to you, you, Drew; Drew; I mention it because bec ecaause it’s it’s interesting. interresting e . The light; lens normally helps filter ultraviolet ultraaviolet v oncee it’s onc it’s gone, gone, or replaced replaced with a nonfiltering artificial artificcial lens, lens, you you can can see UV UV light, which is perceived perceived as whitish blue or violet.
