I'm going, but not particularly expecting to buy anything.

I'll be there but moreso to make photographs than to buy em.

Why not?
It is a weekend out of the city. Besides they might be some eye candy to have... and not to buy!
Great excuse to have cocktails and browse.
See you all there!

If Vered goes to the opening, let's see if if we can get her arrested again!

Like why do they even bother?

With such a poor list of galleries like this.. who's ever going to go back to the SCOPE fair next year?

I'm out in East Hampton anyway. So it's SCOPE or community theater.

Recession-Plagued Nation Demands New Bubble To Invest In
July 14, 2008 | Issue 44•29

WASHINGTON—A panel of top business leaders testified before Congress about the worsening recession Monday, demanding the government provide Americans with a new irresponsible and largely illusory economic bubble in which to invest.

"The U.S. economy cannot survive on sound investments alone," Carlisle added.

Congress is currently considering an emergency economic-stimulus measure, tentatively called the Bubble Act, which would order the Federal Reserve to† begin encouraging massive private investment in some fantastical financial scheme in order to get the nation's false economy back on track.
