Yesterday we packed a lunch and trekked down to Pulse New York, over at Pier 40 in the West Village, where people (like me) ordinarily get their cars out of the impound. Pulse is Armory’s hipper sibling: younger and less pretentious. And I’m a fan of their new site because it’s just a brisk 15-minute walk from Johnny’s, where I once watched a golden retriever – seated at the bar – take a lick out of Celso’s margarita.

Light this mother up! Pipe, by Andy Yoher, at the Edward Winkleman Gallery, is a sculpture made out of black licorice (with silicone and styrofoam). Winkleman tells me that licorice has an unnaturally long shelf life that can be extended with regular rubdowns of WD-40. Delicious!

Sculpture of the Dolls: Detail of an installation by Jennifer Burkley Vasher. (Don’t get too excited: I already plucked out all of the nasal decongestants and the Xanax…)

Strike a Pose: Entrance to the Pulse Art Fair. Kinda like entering a night club. But nerdier.
