Forging ahead while founder Caitlin Myer rewrites one of her two in-progress novels from Uruguay, The Portuguese Artists Colony returns to the Hotel Rex for the latest in its semi-monthly series with the theme "Road Trip."

In town from Chicago as one of the featured readers is Patricia Ann McNair, whose short story collection The Temple of Air was selected as book of the year by the Chicago Writers Association.

Also featured is San Francisco-based Siamak Vossoughi, who writes endearing stories that hinge on a passionate but well-reasoned ethical framework. Brooke D. will play music during Live Writing -- a contest in which writers respond to an audience-selected prompt -- which this month includes Silvi Alcivar (who writes poetry on demand as The Poetry Store), along with fiction maven Sona Avakian, McNair, and Amol Ray. Shanthi Sekaran returns with a developed version of last month's winning story, and host Tim Bauer also shares work.


The Portuguese Artists Colony: Road Trip starts March 24 at 5 p.m. in the salon of Hotel Rex (just behind the Library Bar), 562 Sutter St., S.F. Admission is $5-10; call (800) 433-4434 or visit portugueseartistscolony.blogspot.com.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
