IMG_5479

Almost all members of Designers Collaborative (plus significant others) attended a delicious Holiday Dinner at City Lobster & Steak

Although Designers Collaborative has been meeting for 20 years, in all that time we had never had a proper end-of-year Holiday Dinner. This year we finally did, going to our friends at City Lobster & Steak where they customized a menu specially for our group.  Tim Button, Barry Goralnick, Scott Bromley, Bruce Bierman, Ron Bricke, Susan Arann, and new member Amy Lau all attended with our significant others. Here are a few photos from our evening, and we wish you all the very best for the Holiday Season and the New Year.

Barry Goralnick’s Summer So Far

All at Sea: My partner, the composer-lyricist Keith Gordon, and I spent part of August in Truro and Provincetown on Cape Cod. Some of the time we were sailing on a yacht with one of my Harvard Architecture School friends, Marlene Newman, her husband Bill, and our friends Jim Bennette and David Cowan who own ACME Fine Art and Design in Boston.

On the Cape: Back on land, we had great dinners at three Provincetown restaurants: Victor’s, a fairly new addition to the P-town dining scene that features local and organic ingredients; Devon’s, which serves modern American cuisine and is housed in a one time fish market; and Front Street, an old favorite in the basement of a Victorian building.

Located in a former fish market, Devon’s is full of Cape Cod charm.

Picture Perfect: We saw a terrific exhibition at the Provincetown Art Association and MuseumRobert Motherwell: Beside the Sea, which presented rare work created by the artist in his Provincetown studio during the summer of 1962 until his death in 1991.

Out of the Ashes: Bromley Caldari Architects Designs the New Danikki Building at Fire Island Pines

Last November a spectacular fire destroyed two buildings in Fire Island Pines: The Pavilion dance club, a gay landmark famous for its high-tea parties, and the adjacent Danikki building, which housed seven Pines businesses, including the Sip n’ Twirl disco, Pines Pizza, the Pines Bistro, a clothing shop, and two real estate offices. We here at Bromley Caldari Architects designed the replacement Danikki building, which was completed in amazingly fast time, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes. Sip n’ Twirl officially reopened July 5, and the pizza parlor on the ground floor and the restaurant on level two will both reopen shortly.  Here are some images of the new building.
