More trouble for Jude Law's x-girlfriend -Sienna Miller

Sienna Miller's West London apartment was vandalized the other evening.

Her apartment got tagged. The person wrote in large black letter the word “Slut”.
Police are now on the hunt for the culprit who tagged Sienna’s wall . Maybe Kate did it!

New Coffee shop in San Francisco called Four Barrel Coffee.

This new coffee shop is located in the mission district (375 Valencia St San Francisco, CA 94199) .They will be opening tomorrow.

The place looks really cute. They have been serving coffee from the cart for a while and today is the last day for the cart before they open the shop up.

There's no wi-fi and the seating is intentionally not too comfy, so you won't find hordes of startups operating in the front area, or emo-talk coming from plush sofas. (Love it!)
Instead, the vibe will remind you of a regular, alcohol-serving bar. Hang at the counter or take a seat at one of about 50 chairs (which seem lifted from a science lab) and narrow wooden tables.
If any of our friends get to stop by here, let us know what you think of the place. I won't be out West until the holidays.
Also, you can go on yelp and see what other people are saying about the place;

Summer Streets - NYC provides Bike Friendly Routes

Summer Streets will take place for three consecutive Saturdays in August (August 9, 16, & 23) from 7:00 am - 1:00 pm. The route will connect the Brooklyn Bridge with Central Park and there will be recommended connections to the Hudson River Greenway, allowing participants to plan a route as long or short as they wish.

This event takes a valuable public space - our City's streets - and opens them up to people to play, walk, bike, and breathe. Summer Streets provides more space for healthy recreation and is a part of NYC's greening initiative by encouraging New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation.

Modeled on other events from around the world including Bogotá, Colombia's Ciclovia, Paris, France's Paris Plage, and even New York's own Museum Mile, this event will be part bike tour, part block party, a great time for exercise, people watching, and just enjoying summer mornings.

This event is for people of all ages and ability levels to share the streets respectfully.

Here is the route BIKE ROUTE

Okay, now fix those lights on the Williamsburg Bridge. For the last 2 weeks it's been pitch black!

Iggy Pop

is my idol. He is 61 years old and can still stage dive, dance like a snake, and flaunt that butt crack. He gave an amazing performance on Friday night at Terminal 5 and we are still recovering. Great show. Fun for the whole family. There were equally as many 50 year old punks as there were 18 year old hipsters....anyway he gives me new hope for growing older. OH yeah, and he has a super hot half nigerian girlfriend. He doesn't seem to be doing bad for an ex junkie, trailor trash baby from Michigan.

excuse the poor quality of our pics....we still haven't read the owner's manual

Louise Bourgeois Exhibit and DJ Alex Moulton at FIRST FRIDAYS at the GUGGENHEIM
In a hyper-accelerated, technology-driven world where short attention spans and sounds bites seem the norm, the full-on musical experience of DJ Alex Moulton is not to be missed. Moulton promises an unforgettable acoustic storyline going beyond synth-pop prog-rock to pure, funky dance floor fun.

Louise Bourgeois (born in Paris, December 25, 1911) is an artist and sculptor. Her parents repaired tapestries. At 12, she started helping them draw the missing segments of the tapestries. At 15 she studied mathematics at the Sorbonne. Her studies of geometry contributed to her early cubist drawings. Still searching, she began painting, studying at the École du Louvre and then the École des Beaux-Arts, and worked as an assistant to Fernand Léger. In 1938 she moved with her American husband, Robert Goldwater, to New York City to continue her studies at the Art Students League of New York, feeling that she would not have stayed an artist had she continued to live in Paris. [1]
She lives and works in New York City.
