The Wine Bar at the Shoppes at Harbor Villages is an excellent spot to unwind and share a glass with a friend. It also serves as a venu for local artists, including bay area photographer Robert Buelteman. A San Francisco native, Bueltman’s work embraces the same spirit of exploration and discovery that first dawned during his childhood when the natural beauty of the area evoked in him a recognition of space and light. His work is remarkable and brings to the viewer a new understanding of the poetic nature of California’s unique landscape. Robert Buelteman’s work will be in display at the Wine Bar for the month of August. Please visit the the artist’s official website, http://www.buelteman.com, for more information.
When we travel, we are often looking to relax and expand our lives by experiencing new things, from white water rafting to wine tasting. Artwork can act as a form of rejuvenation and enrichment as well, and that can certainly be said about the 50-50 Show at the Sanchez Art Center on Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica near Half Moon Bay. The art show will feature the artwork of sixty seven artists who produced the exhibited work over a 50-day period exploring a single theme in one medium. The work was selected by Marian Parmenter, co-founder of SFMOMA Artists Gallery and fills three galleries, providing an ample amount of material to take in during a visit.

Crab Landing is an excellent spot for fresh seafood with a magnificent view. The menu of the Pillar Point Harbor restaurant features everything from the delectable Dungeness Crab and Lobster Cioppino to a Chocolate Lava Cake that is to die for. However, it’s not just the food that will fill you up, but the live music as well. Bay area jazz singer Cathi Walkup will be entertaining the clientele of the Crab Landing on Saturday, August 21st and 28th. An internationally renowned singer, Cathi Walkup is one of the most accomplished female jazz vocalists of her age (just visit her website http://www.cwalkup.com/music.html and have a listen if you don’t believe me!). If you are in the Half Moon Bay area and looking for the perfect evening out, look no further than Crab Landing. Combining fine food and fine sounds, it’s a match made in heaven.
