It’s well documented that celebrity musician David Byrne has a special for fondness for Bernal Heights. And in turn, glamorous Bernal Heights has a special fondness for David Byrne. Now you have the opportunity to become the proud owner of a very special, autographed suit that David Byrne donated to support the raffle for the artwork that will go on the southern (playground) side of the Bernal Heights Library.
The raffle will take place at a tony after-party that will be held in conjunction with the Summer Solstice Stroll on Cortland tomorrow, June 20th. The party will be held at Wild Side West on Cortland, beginning at 7 pm.
David Byrne’s camo suit is currently on display in the window of Heartfelt, and Heartfelt’s Miss Darcy writes to tell us more about the raffle:
Here is the poster for the After Stroll Party [see below]; it details all the great raffle prizes.
This is a fund raiser for the playground side of the library, and the artist chosen to do the installation Johanna Poethig, a well known public space artist. Now we just have to raise some bucks!
There will be a beer garden at the back of Wild Side, with a bottomless cup for $10. Raffle tickets are on sale at Heartfelt, at $5 each or five tickets for $20.
Side Note: Bernalwood will have additional details about the proposed library artwork (and a series of meetings to discuss it) later this week.
Fashion Geography Caveat: The raffle suit really did come from David Byrne, but wannabe owners are advised that the camouflage pattern on the suit is optimized for heavily forested woodlands, rather than the grassy scrub of Bernal Hill. This should not pose a problem from a fashion-cool standpoint, though it may be a hindrance if you intend to disappear on Bernal Hill while wearing the David Byrne suit. Good luck in the raffle!

There goes the neighborhood.
Sounds like fun! Just found out that some friends, “Red Hill Derby”, will be playing music at the Wild Side West as part of the festivities.
