Gallic Dream II,
photography from the winters of 2005 and 2006 in the cities of Paris,
Dresden, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, explores the changing roll of femininity
in society as seen through advertising, early modernism today and the
artist's passion for the city of Paris.

After numerous requests from our customers, Basic
Necessities is now offering wine tasting on Wednesday afternoons. Each
week Kay selects a variety of wines, drags out the map of
France, and welcomes a gregarious group of wine lovers who want to learn
more about this delicious, if sometimes mysterious, beverage. Yes, we
taste wines, but more importantly, Kay teaches about the culture, region,
and nuances of individual wines. It is definitely a "class participation"
event and each week varies with the background of those attending.
Some weeks Kay chooses wines from a specific French
region (i.e. Burgundy, Bordeaux, Champagne) and some weeks she selects
random wines to compare. On several occasions we have invited
representatives from local wineries to discuss their particular wines.
Want to learn more about wine and have an enjoyable
afternoon? Call us to make reservations our dining porch each Wednesday and
every other Tuesday. The Price varies but is usually between $14 and $18
which includes at least 3 different wines, fresh bread and a selection of cheeses
or a special treat from our kitchen!
Do you dream of a slower, quieter time when friends
valued an hour together over a pot of tea in the afternoon? Dream no more.
At Basic Necessities we still take time to serve a pot of proper English
tea, accompanied by a scone with clotted cream and jam.
