Big City’s Modern Weekend
This Week’s S.F. Modernism Show Features
Collectables, Furnishings and Fun Not Found Online
Shopping online for mid-century modern furnishings can be easy, Mark Wiskow says, and can save the buyer a few bucks.
But, he says, the San Francisco Modernism Show, which runs Saturday August 13 and Sunday August 14 at the Concourse Exhibition Center (Eighth and Brannan streets, San Francisco), will allow fans to really learn about what's out there—something that’s harder to do online.
“You need to know what you’re looking for online. If you’ve never seen these candleholders,” Wiskow says, referring to a sleek, silver-plated pair from Denmark, “you don’t know to search for them.”

All new musical Fly By Night
Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto
Through August 13
Fly By Night, a world premier musical at Theatre Works by Kim Rosenstock, Michael Mitnick and Will Connolly, directed by Bill Fennelly, is an enchanting and thought provoking night out. Smart, funny and poignant lyrics combine with sweet melodies within a brain-teasing and well-told tale. It's a story as simple as a triangle, as the beguiling, sweet-voiced Narrator, Wade McCollum, tells us - and as complex. “Guided by a star-crossed prophecy, two entrancing sisters and a hapless sandwich maker/would-be songwriter discover a well of courage and a wealth of romance during New York’s knockout blackout of 1965. In a charming, darkly comic rock musical…

An interesting article in the Wall Street Journal about Hedge fund tycoon John Paulson may make you think twice about the bond market, as well as housing and gold. Simply put with our nation being the most indebted in the history of the world there is only one way for interest rates to go and that is up, up, up. Realistically it is not a question of if it will happen, it really is more a matter of when and by how much. I believe this is a very cogent assessment on the where the bond market is going.
In fact our team is advising all of our clients if they have the ability to get low interest loan/s, we can and will provide the guidance they need to take advantage of the investment opportunities available in the Silicon Valley real…
