When I showed up to Jason Woodside’s opening last Friday in the Lower East Side, I was a little taken aback. Parked directly in front of Poppington gallery was a new Bentley and it seemed more like I was on location for a rap shoot than a downtown art opening. Turns out legendary businessman Dame Dash, responsible for companies such as Roc-A-Fella Records and Rocawear, owns the gallery. He’d found out about Jason’s work and decided to host his show. The mix of people made for a pretty good, pretty drunken evening. Rather than wine, we had bottles of Moet Rose. Rather than water, we drank Vampire Life vodka and Heineken. Jason also gave me a tour of his Chinatown studio in preparation for the show. Turns out he’s in a pretty transient time of his life. He is currently moving out of his space and looking for a new one as well as moving his coffee shop, Happy Bones to a new location. Happy Bones will reopen the first week of November at 394 Broome Street. So if you happen to be in New York anytime soon, make sure to track him down and tell him that I told you that he promised free coffee for life to anybody who whispers “Monster Children” after ordering their drink.
