••• The businesses of the Arts District—shops, galleries, restaurants—are throwing a Fall for the Arts event this Friday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. “From signature drinks and seasonal specials to new art exhibits, meet the artists, special discounts at local boutiques and more.”
••• J. forwarded details about a chamber music performance at Bellosguardo on November 4; two or maybe three of the performers are UCSB faculty. Tickets are $240-250. You need credentials to book, which I’m not sure I should pass along. All the more reason to click the “become a supporter” on the foundation’s website, which is the main way to find out about opportunities to visit the property.
••• Opening October 27 at Caldwell Snyder: recent paintings by John Evans that “reflect the artist’s inspired connections to his favorite locations over the past 40 years.” Below: “French Farm.”
••• Yet another possible change coming to Los Alamos: the Los Alamos Market at 405 Bell Street is for sale. The offering includes the business and the building. (It has been on the market for about six months, but I only recently caught wind of it; the price is not listed.)
••• On October 27, the Pearl Chase Society is screening Birth of Beauty, a film about “the creation of Plaza Rubio and the women who set the standard for planning in Santa Barbara. There’s a suggested donation of $5; to reserve, call 805-961-3938.
••• I had reason to go check out the new-ish Courtyard by Marriott at State and Arrellaga, and I have to say, the roof deck is pretty sweet.
