THEY SHOOT TEQUILA, DON'T THEY?
It was more than just the town being painted red the night PATTI PECK and MELANIE TUSQUELLAS hosted L.A.'s first PAINT THE PARTY benefit bash at their brand-swankin' new EDENDALE GRILL & MIXVILLE BARin Silver Lake. Artist ANDRE MIRIPOLSKY was commissioned to capture the gathering of local bons vivants and living legends on canvas for all posterity; the work will be auctioned off for posterity and prosperity later this year to benefit the Hollyhock House. Among those bellying up to the courtyard bar, carved out of ice, for a shot of tequila, or checking out the gorgeously transformed 1920s firehouse were composer and Southern eccentric VAN DYKE PARKS, Ant Farm alumnus HUDSON MARQUEZ and kustom-kar guru GEORGE BARRIS, artist COOP, the Weirdos' JOHN DENNEY, the Circle Jerks' KEITH MORRIS, former MC5 guitarist WAYNE KRAMER, actress KATHY KINNEY, The Negro Problem's STEW, and Velvet Hammer vixens MICHELLE CARR and RITA D'ALBERT. Many a partygoer posed for a Polaroid, hoping to be immortalized in the Miripolsky original, but we were a little disappointed when we didn't get to witness the artist in action. He later confided that he planned on painting the work from memory. So much for striking a pose.
