San Diego: March Mixer
Presented by Columbia Business Schools Alumni Club of San Diego
Thursday, March 21st, 2019, 5:30-7:30 pm
Malahat Spirits: 8706 Production Ave, San Diego, CA . (Take I15 or I805 to Miramar Road and then take that to Production Road, about 1/4 mile North.)
It's Spring Break again and Columbia's turn - It's time to do something different with some spirit(s)
. This month we will take over Malahat Spirits. Farm to Table has been trendy in restaurants and Malahat has taken it to distilleries as one of the few craft distilleries globally that is fully GRAIN to BOTTLE - 100% vertically integrated. As usual we will have a selection of appetizers gratis and this month the drink menu is a little different. They are a distillery first, a tasting room (Rum, Whiskey, Bourbon and Vodka) and a bar (or as they say at Harvard, specialized mixology services) serving specialized cocktails. They are introducing a new line-up 4/1 and we'll have a combined menu of old and new and will be solicited for our taste tests
We have the owner scheduled to present at 6:15 but he is tentative due to health issues of parents BUT they will have their expert distillers and mixologists on hand. There will be a separate area for tastings and we'll announce group tastings and then as we taste, they will describe the supply chain and process of producing it- each tasting takes round 30 minutes and we'll announce those. Otherwise you can buy flights or cocktails (what's on website and more).
This is a CBS alumni event opened up to the MBAsd organization- if you can make it and can volunteer as an "ambassador" and help out, we'd appreciate it!

Crush Curatorial with Adama Delphine Fawundu
Presented by the CAA Arts Access and Columbia University School of the Arts
Monday, March 28, 2019 | 6:007:30 p.m.
Crush Curatorial, 526 West 26th Street, Suite # 709, New York, NY 10001
Join CAA Arts Access and Columbia University School of the Arts for a private exhibition viewing with artist Adama Delphine Fawundu '18SOA for her solo exhibition, Adama Delphine Fawundu: The Sacred Star of Isis at Crush Curatorial, founded by Karen Hesse Flatow '84BUS, '96SOA.
In this newly-conceived body of work, the artist takes the ancient West African deity, Mami Wata, as a departure point and builds on her engagement with her Mende heritage of Sierra Leone. Linking known and under-recognized geographies of the African diaspora, Ms. Fawundus work upends national and temporal borders, invoking interconnectivity and transformation across cultural and environmental thresholds.
The exhibition includes video works and a series of photographs titled the The Sacred Star of Isis (2017-ongong) featuring the artist occupying a host of settings that bore witness to events of the diaspora. Documenting herself as a black female agent within these ghostly sites, Ms. Fawundu employs masks, garments, and gestures to mark the specificity of her locations and to unearth stories that sit beneath their surfaces. The artist is also premiering a series of mixed media works inspired by fabrics hand-dyed by her paternal grandmother, Adama, and her aunt of Sierra Leone.
Learn more about the exhibition here.
